    You are reading what's not said.

    Neither are "great" mountains. Good in their own right though.

    But what it looks now is not the point though. Another "storm" is coming Friday!

    For the majority of the mountains, they'll get rain. A LOT OF rain for some!

    There maybe some upslope snow at...

    I don't know how much you want to pursue this with the shop. After all, it's a shop you "want to support".

    But they kind of lied to you about Marker no longer have the jig, which was probably why...

    Well, you still have the Baron on the Moments, right?

    I know it sucks to use the Black Crow on lift served terrain only. But how often do you tour anyway?

    Poor choice of words.

    Neither had been "hyped" by anyone. Both are refuge from weekend crowds on their "respected mothership".

    Like indy mountains, they have their own merit. Many prefer the...

    Quite!

    Perhaps they should have paid a fraction of that $500K to some smugglers and they can cross the Rio Grande in style. Why bother doing it legally?

    Fraud is fraud.

    Just suppose you PAID $500 for a pair of ski and it never arrived because someone decided to use it for themselves. That's fraud. Do you think if a Mexican paid $500 and never got...

    It’s only “expensive” compared to SLC.

    Compared to Colorado (Summit county, never mind Vail/Aspen), Jackson is “cheap”!

    Ok, I get that's what they THINK.

    Whether that'll bear out in reality is still to be seen.

    From what I heard, a good portion of Epic pass holders only ski less than 10 days anyway. If so, the...
