    In the broader context of whether or not the government is providing massive subsidies to the oil and gas industry, it's a valid point. The fact that the government may be making more money off a...

    13 day average doesn't seem particularly low to me. That's at least once a week from mid-Dec to mid-March.

    I am confusing nothing. Another poster made a claim that a family of five cannot ski Switzerland (not Zermatt) for less than $10,000. No one in this thread has provided any evidence that a family...

    The issue is not whether $10K is significantly more than what a family of a five would expect to pay to ski out west (I suspect it is, but never having paid for a family of five to ski out west, I do...

    It was obvious to me that he was merely using that number as a refutation for the dubious claim people were tossing around that skiing in Switzerland is not expensive. Whether it's $8,875 for a...

    The plaintiffs are typically recruited by the firms. It could be a family member or friend of the attorney or an entity specifically created by the attorney to file the suit. The plaintiffs have no...

    Yes. Anything that a reasonable shareholder would consider important in deciding how to vote has to be disclosed. This is a typical nuisance suit that will benefit no one except the plaintiff's...

    The suit will likely settle for additional disclosure and attorney's fees. Attorneys get a bad rap, but in cases like this it is more than deserved.

    I'm no statistician, so I cannot comment on whether the report's conclusion and, in particular, it's trademarked (!) "Embezzlement Propensity Factor" are supported by the data, but a few examples of...

    Hour long lines for tickets at routine at Blue. Maybe it's 45 minutes and just feels like an hour. Whatever it is, it's ridiculous and I would stop going there if I had to wait on that line each...

    I've had fun at Mountain Creek after a storm when they let some of the trails bump up. Crowds are definitely an issue on mid-winter weekends, but no worse than the Poconos or Hunter. I think Blue...

    I didn't ski there after Mother's Day weekend this year, but the surface was fine up to that point. Maybe it wasn't down to the boilerplate yet. Does it not bump up as well or something? From the...

    That makes sense. There's probably not much demand to learn to ski before winter sets in, while many intermediates and advanced skiers are champing at the bit to get back on snow as early as...

    SB doesn't try to open the Village Quad right off the bat? That's what I have in mind as beginner terrain - basically learning areas for true beginners. If areas like that are not priorities for VT...

    Are most resorts in VT opening with one or two WRODs for the diehards? I certainly wouldn't recommend a beginner heading up to K in October hoping to ski Snowshed. Wasn't aware that the VT resorts...

    I don't think this matters too much for beginners. With the exception of places competing to be the first to open, resorts will typically not open unless their beginner areas have snow. That being...

    I like how he lays the blame on sneaky young Californians and Front Rangers who "look and act like a local," whatever that means.

    Camelback is a good choice - the most resort-like area in the Poconos, with plenty of lodging and non-ski-related options. I like the Shawnee recommendation, too, for first-timers. I learned to ski...

    Yeah, it's hard to tell. I imagine it would draw in a lot more of the Pocono crowd who would like to have the other options for some variation and maybe a trip out west. Maybe the inevitable...

    I have a strong preference for Ikon's offerings, both east and west. I guess I could see myself doing some late season days at Hunter on Epic. Would probably still get a K spring pass. I wonder...

    That was the rumor. I'm glad it didn't pan out. I have little interest in visiting Epic's other offerings, east or west, and would just as well not have pass price go up (Vail would probably...

    Maybe Vail can implement luxury bus service from Manhattan to Hunter. I would not pay a premium for the current bus experience. Kind of interested to see what happens. I think the current bus...
