    That's not horrendous for a holiday weekend. Thanksgiving sometimes takes an hour or 1.5 hours longer than usual to get home from VT. I've just accepted it at this point.

    That will happen a few years after Rob Katz decides he, "needs to move on to a new challenge" or "a different chapter" in his life or decides to get into politics, or etc.

    That's the worst thing I've ever seen. Why bother? If I showed-up and saw that, I'd go snowshoeing or something.

    There's absolutely no need to explain yourself.

    Hunter doesnt count, it's lift ticket price is $90, which is not akin to the insane $140, $150, $200 ticket prices we're talking about. Not to mention, it's a bit of an outlier given it's market is...

    In almost every instance in life, you'd be correct, but not in this rather unusual instance, as ski industry "walk up rates" are now completely detached from financial reasonableness, and...

    I agree; and apparently your opinion isn't unpopular as many here seem to be on-board.

    And I also agree with the "marketing gimmick" comment as well given at XYZ resort it's highly likely not...

    Looking at this now that it's incoming, I'm inclined to think it's going to under-perform these lofty predicted totals. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    I mean, I would have more helpfully, tactfully, and politely handled that, but it's not like he's wrong.

    Not really. Very few skiers as a sum of the whole live on top of their ski destinations. Most have to travel at least a bit. The large city populaces are the markets these passes truly covet,...

    Do you think they benefited learning-wise from starting at 2 or 3, or is it more a "cute" thing & convenient for the family (i.e. sort of like daycare so the parents can ski)? This is one of the...

    What you call "bias", I call an opinion based upon living a life almost entirely in very liberal jurisdictions.

    And it's not an opinion I share alone, this belief that white liberals view nearly...

    Precisely what I wrote about regarding the author who's book I learned about via Jon Stewart's show. Kusty is not an outlier, he is the norm.

    The liberal voter typically views him/herself as...
