    Too bad. I am in the market for a Shamala Birakni tour package, not a Shimla Manali package. I would consider a Manhput Dilami tour package, though.

    Bolton Valley is a candidate for mid-week closure.

    Burke should close mid-week (e.g. Tuesday and Wednesday) but the hotel has painted them into a corner.

    Whether or not they are idiots in this particular situation remains to be seen. You can hardly blame them if they enter into a deal to sell the mountain for more money than Aretaris put on the table.

    I keep up with m buddies just fine. We’ve tested it numerous times. Modern ski bases are hydrophobic just like wax, so wax isn’t needed.

    This is spot on. Did you really think that they are going to say, "Yeah, we are going to do some cleaning house."

    If Vail's motivation was ONLY to drive skiers to Vail, they would not offer the EPIC pass. Each local hill they own would have its own pass that was good for that local hill and Vail only.

    In 2006 the Snowbird's 600 foot tunnel only cost $1.4 million. That's not bad at all - and it doesn't look like they used modern boring technology which may be cheaper.

    With modern boring technology a tunnel might actually make financial sense.

    Of course you would need a snowmaking system designed for a tunnel, which is a completely separate problem.
