  1. Hate to say it, but pretty much any of those...

    Hate to say it, but pretty much any of those resorts is going to be busy at Christmas time. Even Solitude. Of those, I'd have to agree that Big Sky or Taos, at baseline, are not as crowded, so it...

    Must be knife sales are slow for you today. And the Olympics were not at Solitude, Mr. Know-it-All.

    His concerns again are that this is another illustration of how local control is not a thing. ...

    Ski too much? No way! ;)

    That said, I used to snowshoe and XC ski a lot more until I grew up and had to pay full freight for a pass. Now I often try to use it as much as I can.

    Read the op-ed. His concern is the lack of oversight and the fact that the local county has no say as to land use and their local regs. Also see that the MIDA board are not accountable to anyone.

    An Op Ed piece that gives some historical context and also shows just how little those serving in the armed services are getting. Not to mention the fact that there is virtually no oversight.

    Right. They may have access to a spot or two, but most of Jordanelle is state land.
  7. Burke Considers Single File Ordinance

    Last week I was in the NEK. Burke is bursting at the seams with activity. Seems like a good idea to keep roads safe.

    BTV is not at all a major airport and most of the ski traffic in Vermont are folks driving from the major cities. Folks also take Amtrak, to some extent.

    So there is a positive review. :lol:

    Agree that it has bad exposure.
  12. New Resort Moving Forward in Utah: Mayflower Resort

    Deer Valley has long planned an expansion towards Jordanelle Reservoir. Anyone who has been to DV lately has seen their models in the base area near the realty offices showing the proposed...

    Honestly, I am VERY interested to see what Vail does with its newly purchased NH properties. As someone previously said, they now own FOUR major resorts in NH. ASC had to divest when it had control...

    Check out Greg Stump. He did ski ballet as part of freestyle way back in the 1960's and 1970's. IIRC he was a national champion. FWIW I don't think that ski ballet is really a thing anymore. I...

    Yeah, I think that Breckenridge is going to be Vail's only late option. PCMR closes pretty early.

    It's probably been already said, but Delta flies direct to SLC if you are interested in going a bit further.

    Yeah, from my quick read it was meant as a tongue-in-cheek piece. Park City folks aren't happy with Vail. Or Alterra. First world problems. :lol:

    Funny article.

    Im not sure if paying the Sacklers a significant chunk of change is "destroying" them.

    Now is your chance to move from armchair resort owner on AZ to real resort owner. ;)

    So a few thoughts.

    First, I think that Crowley did a good PR job of saying he felt bad for what happened and that they hope the kid gets better. Good on him. Ultimately it is their insurer who...

    Speaking of Crotched and Sunapee, could you imagine being Pats Peak and waking up last week to see that your two closest competitors are now owned by Vail?
