    Now, yes.

    I'm talking about the 50 consecutive years (which ended recently) that they were (apparently unwittingly) operating the tram beyond its' stated safety weight limit.

    Or you can be like Jay Peak & operate your aerial tram for more than 50 years beyond its' rated safety capacity.

    I'm pretty sure that's the straw that stirs the drink. It seems to be a bizarre, old, long-open ski real estate loophole whereby cheap skiing essentially "needed" to be offered somewhere to our...

    Why? I've never had a negative experience with either AirBNB or VRBO and I usually save a ton of money. The last time I used VRBO I got a 1 BR apartment with porch in a highrise in Toronto...

    THIS.

    Deal is not closed, Vail cannot yet effect any price changes on tickets.

    That said, an 11% increase in weekday tickets is a huge YoY increase, and just another, albeit minor, data point...

    Wait, a ski area CEO is actually publicly admitting that a big part of the major increase in crowds is from IKON passholders & not simply due to a great snow year?

    The Poconos does do that. I was under the impression that virtually everywhere in America did that.

    Unless they had not raised prices for several years, I would not view 3% & 11% increases positively.
  10. The proposed map was shared on unofficial, and...

    The proposed map was shared on unofficial, and probably 50% is either due north to a north, northeast facing, which is actually a solid terrain direction. The other chunks are closer to a due east...

    Huh? There is far more "to do" in the Poconos than there is anywhere near Jay Peak. Again, this is terrible advice.

    Yeah, because that's just what a first-time-ever on skis person needs; Jay Peak.

    Where's the facepalm emoji?

    If you're an eastern skier bitching about either Park City or Vail, you clearly don't appreciate your time out west enough.

    This is precisely why I recommended it. Best place in the Poconos for beginners. I still go there maybe once every 2 or 3 years if they get a big storm. With plenty of snow I think the place is...

    XC skiing in the Poconos? Wow, you really are snowptimistic. Dont bet on it.

    I agree there's no reason to stay in downtown SLC, were I to stay on the Front I'd go with Sandy or Cottonwood Heights. But I think there's quite a bit to do in SLC from the science center to the...

    December in the Poconos is likely not going to be great (although you never know), so your suspicion that January will have better odds for conditions is correct.

    Given the skiers are never-evers,...

    It's definitely worth staying a few days in Park City given you've never been.

    As for your stay on the Wasatch Front, there are so many AirBNB & VRBO places in this area that you will find much...

    Yes, Vail is awesome. BSB is a lonely playground worthy of the day by itself. There's plenty of great stuff at Vail, you need to find a local or a friendly employee if you had a bad time.

    Yeah, easterners who claim the skiing at Vail is "lame" or "too easy" or insert _______ pejorative, are just trying to make themselves sound like the God of Expert Skiing.

    I mean, as far as boondoggle's go, this is clearly pretty boondoggleley.



    ONE Wasatch needs to happen. I'm 100% convinced that the marketing advantage this would confer would be worth...

    Yes, and there's already some roads going in. When I was there a few months back I was wondering WTH was going to go in there, now I know.

    Thanks for reminding me to sell. I held it a bit in hopes Alterra might trump them, but that's not likely now, and all it will take is one crunchy politician using the M word and SKIS will plummet...

    No, he's correct. The Windham crowd are the yuppies & rich folks who dont care that much about the skiing, but wish to be pampered.
