    I doubt it. The'll need to argue that there is a better alternative to selling to Vail. Given the take out price is 2x the standalone trading price of Peak's stock and there is no indication that...

    My X resort comment refers to the circularly of the conversation. Becomes unproductive after a while.

    I've made no such claim (including being "from" NJ), but these conversations intimately devolve into people like you getting butthurt - so thanks for reminding me it's time to be done with this...

    Limited. Had a couple days where the backside was closed due to fog/visibility. Also was there with the wife, who is intermediate and didn't want to venture out that far. When I had the chance to go...

    100%. Well said.

    I get that there are hardos out there that say they're above Vail - and that's a clown take. That said, if I'm going to make the time/$ investment to get to the Rockies, I'd...

    I liked Jupiter/McConkey's on the PC side and 9990 and Peak 5 on the Canyons side as much as anything in the back bowls at Vail. That peak as far away from PC as you can get at the Canyons seemed to...

    If you think Vail is better than Park City, then you clearly don't know Park City!!!

    Yeah I didn't make it over there the day I hit BC in mid winter. Good call.

    I presume this is directed at me. I'm not saying the place is not fun. I've had fun at much lesser places - my last day out in 60 degree sun at Big Boulder this April is a good example.

    Have you been? I was disappointed, so I'm somewhat warm to the critiques. That said, the motivations you outlined feel spot on by and large. The bowls served by the the lift on the skiers right are...

    Yeah I'm not in a position where I need the full epic. I think I'd just get Butte out of that list on the local. Would love to hit up all three one day though. Fair point for those who need no...

    Whistler and Kirkwood are both awesome. Otherwise, Ikon has the more interesting looking portfolio to me, too, from the looks of it (not that I've been).

    Yeah even the proud NH boy in me has to acknowledge that NVT receives better and more plentiful snow than NH. The resorts are generally better there, too. We've still got the presidentials, though!

    Ammo pitch is natural, I believe. I was surprised Peak didn't make snow on Turkey chute to Carrigan. Could re-rate Whitehorse below highway to blue and manufacture another blue square run that they...

    Good to hear. It was closed when I got there last March, but I think it was iced over rather than untouched by snowmaking now that you mention it. I'm really interested to see how Vail approaches...

    "Cat and Tash" ??? I thought it was "Kitty and Titty" ?!?!?

    Also, I didn't think middle Ptarmigan has seen snowmaking in years.

    Good to hear about the bumping up, but even under ASC, every trail I mentioned got snowmaking regardless of whether it was a bump run or not. I obviously don't need to explain to you the elevation...
