  1. NHPR's "Exchange" Discusses New Hampshire's Ski Industry

    The "Exchange" is a favorite of mine. This is a daily 60-minute "call-in" public affairs and current events show on NHPR. This hour segment includes thoughts from Kris Blomback from Pats Peak, Ben...

    As you have said, this year is going to be the test for the pass. If it is an average snow season, we shall see if it really is conditions that drive people. However, we’re already now slightly ahead...

    John still has a lot of $$$ at his disposal now since Ian died.

    John is also not running POWDR, but instead running my beloved Snowbird. So far he has not screwed up anything too badly. Yet. ...

    There certainly are fans in here of Mount Ellen and Pico. Perhaps that was what he was saying? If anything is overhyped, it is Lincoln Peak and Killington IMHO.

    Probably not much. They are investing a lot into improvements at Killington, Copper, and building a new Woodward in Park City.

    FWIW a lot of the investors have NOT gotten a green card yet because of Q's fraud and inability to create the requisite number of jobs.

    Maximum limits...rrriiiggghhhtt. Snowbird would never do that (actually they did on the 4th of July this year to their credit).

    The only issue is that anything in Jackson (lodging, food, etc.) is expensive as hell.

    Right--I saw that. What I was saying is that I am surprised that the Judge granted his motion considering the size and seriousness of this case.

    In terms of skiing experience, from what I am seeing they have added one new beginner lift and that is it. Long laid out plans for HSQ for the Jet and HS6 for Bonnie, but no progress. Same old...

    Going from unlimited to 5/7 days may make a difference. But I can tell you that here in SLC 5-7 limits mean nothing and crowding is an issue. Why would you pay $1,000 for a Snowbird Pass when you...

    The reality of the situation is that the immediate future for skiing is less about buying a pass to a single mountain, let alone buying a day ticket, and instead getting a discounted multi-mountain...

    I would have expected that it would have been the other way around because they need to drive traffic to Pico.

    And FWIW Pico is a legit mountain IMHO.
