    This isn't meant to single you out, but the fact that we as a species feel it necessary to waste our mental energy thinking about whether we're okay with a ski area's pricing scheme is absurd.

    I was too young to follow the ASC antitrust issues, but it seems that it was argued that competition in very localized areas was no longer possible (e.g. the white mountains). I wish I could think of...

    Brilliant. How could you possibly blame a guy for selling his business when it's going to be vaporized by the sun monster? Better still, some PE firm will get stuck holding the bag!

    Joking aside,...

    I've asked this before here or elsewhere. The feedback I remember is Saddleback gets 200-220 vs 180-200 at Sugarloaf (better exposure to North/West). Someone showed some stats to suggest that there's...

    Do you have any idea how that site arrives at its figures? The totals seem directionally accurate, but a tick under where places usually advertise.

    So this goes back to expectations of skiing...

    I'm not sure about it by any stretch. They could just be over building, too. Just trying to read the tea leaves. It could work given (at least) the following:

    Sunday River (North Peak) at least used to run a limited schedule/at half speed from what I understand. I haven't been in quite a while.

    It would be unusual, I agree. It just really seems like the...

    With what money? There's no chance they can afford to run a HSQ 7 days a week in that remote a location. You can ski the tbar to the Kennebago quad. I've skied that place once ever on a Friday, and...

    I tend to agree. HSQs are ~2x as expensive to build and I've heard they can be even more than 2x as expensive to run. It sure seems like a big undertaking, but it's sure to draw more people than a...

    It's funny your quote was singled out considering I was the one who had the audacity to wonder aloud whether Wednesday operations at a slew of eastern ski areas is profitable.

    I bet it has a real negative effect in that regard. I also think its only a matter of time before we see a vacation real estate collapse. Using North Conway as my measuring stick, it looks little a...

    It's a drawn out hypothetical at this point. Practically, I bet SB is now more likely to operate all week at ME because they probably feel compelled to put their best foot forward to compete within...

    I hear you. I didn't mention this because I don't know how places like magic pull it off - I'm pretty sure they have a "no midweek except for powder days" policy.

    Each situation is unique, but...

    I meant re: Delta/United. Again, not clear. I see why you thought I meant SW.

    The point of caveating the SW point is that their model is different: decentralized routes, all 737 fleet, limited...

    I didn't even say that, but I can see why you thought that - I actually saved some points switching the flight, but that's nether here nor there. This is WAY off topic.

    This is really off topic, but SW does fly a reduced schedule on weekends (they're the last airliner I flew and I picked Friday night for that reason). Weekend fares are generally lower, but are we...

    I get the emotional reaction, I really do. I'm just saying IF we assume 1-4 midweek days are losers (depending upon the area, of course), it should set off alarm bells on our head that 7 day...

    Back to the topic, I hope SB finds an owner. It's a real gem. Limited snowmaking and schedule would be prudent.
