    I was seriously tempted to bring MRG's price up in comparison to SB a few days ago when this conversation started. I know MRG is special and unique, but SB's daily rate really doesn't seem that...

    Yes, I'm obsessive with numbers. Sorry, can't help it! I do agree that any increase is a win (even just a 50% increase from ~4K to 6K would be a decent improvement).

    Yup. Great suggestion. I did actually donate to VT Adaptive just a few months ago (although not specifically for the lodge expansion as it was a more general donation if I recall correctly).

    And isn't the Ellen Lodge being expanded potentially next year anyway by Vermont Adaptive? Once they sink that money in I can't see the ME lodge being replaced at any point in the near future.

    I think I pretty much agree with what you're saying across the board. The current % of terrain covered with snowmaking is fairly ideal (I could think of maybe a couple traverses or runouts where it...

    Plan for the worst case scenario, hope for the best! :-)

    Is it maybe that they want to increase the GPM by 2000 to get to 6000 GPM at LP? I looked back at our previous discussions in this thread and they were around 4K GPM at LP right now (meanwhile ME is...

    Yes, they have run out of water (just a few years ago) and had to wait for river levels to rise and refill it (it was a drought or borderline drought year). And IIRC, it is permitted to 63M gallons,...

    That K price is still a better deal (about half the price per vertical foot AND you can ski it more than 2 hours if you want for that price!). Personally I can't see paying for that either though,...

    Wow...well played A-Basin! Opening from 3:30PM-5:30PM today and announcing just after Keystone says they open tomorrow. That is without a doubt them giving Vail the middle finger.

    FWIW, Sugarbush did lower their season pass prices around the time Vail bought Stowe. Prior to that they also created an additional "30s" age bracket that benefited some people (my price was...
