    Are you referring to Hillary Clinton and healthcare in 1992?

    I don’t see this tax passing. However, if it did pass, I don’t think it would have much impact on the number of skier days in New...

    Too bad. I am in the market for a Shamala Birakni tour package, not a Shimla Manali package. I would consider a Manhput Dilami tour package, though.

    Bolton Valley is a candidate for mid-week closure.

    Burke should close mid-week (e.g. Tuesday and Wednesday) but the hotel has painted them into a corner.
