    Yes, you have a point on Powdr and past decisions. I am not shocked they did nothing with Snowbird on Ikon and you shouldn't be either. I said this on a previous post, Powdr is deep in with the...

    And why wouldn't folks have driven up to Sugarbush currently with the Ikon when their K days are used up? Just because it's unlimited at SB next year vs 5/7 this? That makes zero sense.

    As far as I know, if there is only one backup motor, it is usually an APU (not fully rated) and that cannot be used other than emptying the lift. It is possible some lifts with only a single diesel...

    Aspen, DV and to some extent Stowe are extreme examples at the ultra posh end. I get those folks are probably upset their private digs have been eroded. Given the $$ DV and Aspen command, maybe...

    The "Yan-omas" are a disaster. Not sure what Poma did when they retrofitted all of them in the East, but seems like we got the short stock on those (because all Yan HSQ's had to be retrofitted over...

    If there are crowds, how do you figure homeowners would sell for a loss? Sounds like there might be demand to me. Prices will go up, but not astronomically, that blows up the Epic/Ikon model if it...

    If this is true, then the entire SLC valley must be switching to Ikon passes. It's the only explanation that fits given LCC has 7 days MAX access on the Ikon. I will say this, if I lived in SLC,...

    It was probably a Les-ism. You know, like White Heat being the steepest/widest/longest? SlideBrook was probably the fastest/longest HSQ when installed :}
