    I keep up with m buddies just fine. We’ve tested it numerous times. Modern ski bases are hydrophobic just like wax, so wax isn’t needed.

    This is spot on. Did you really think that they are going to say, "Yeah, we are going to do some cleaning house."

    If Vail's motivation was ONLY to drive skiers to Vail, they would not offer the EPIC pass. Each local hill they own would have its own pass that was good for that local hill and Vail only.

    Vail wants skiers to go from feeder hills close to urban centers to expensive hills where they will spend several days and lots of money on lodging and food. I doubt they care if a New Yorker goes...

    A) You don't have to go under it.
    B) There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of tunnels that go under bodies of water. It's not a problem, especially for something as insignificant as this...

    In 2006 the Snowbird's 600 foot tunnel only cost $1.4 million. That's not bad at all - and it doesn't look like they used modern boring technology which may be cheaper.

    With modern boring technology a tunnel might actually make financial sense.

    Of course you would need a snowmaking system designed for a tunnel, which is a completely separate problem.

    I'm shocked at what real estate is going for at the mountain. There are two 2-bedroom units (759 square feet) listed for $198,500. Two other larger units are listed for $329,000.

    Owl's Head is a fun area with some very good mid-week deals. But their lifts are ancient. There is a reason why they have not gone bankrupt. They are extremely frugal.
