    Yes - I'm sure all the people who bought into The Hermitage are super psyched about having that bubble 6-pack to protect them from the elements.

    I would suggest you either put on another layer, or stay at your home mountain.

    Self-selection is a wonderful thing.

    Hard pass.

    Just stop. The current uphill capacity is what makes the experience. A triple chair carries 1800 PPH vs. Castlerock which IIRC is at 600 PPH due to the chair spacing. If you don't...

    More so than being overkill for a pod like Gate House, a bubble 6-pack just isn't a smart investment in most cases. There is a reason that Hermitage is BK. There's a reason Ascutney is BK (even...

    With current usage patterns at North, I can't imagine building an entirely new or dramatically expanded Glen House would pencil out. It's open for 3.5 months a year. Different story if North was...

    You want to take info on that site with a huge grain of salt, as the publisher has a clear agenda he's been pushing with all of his content. The vast majority of the expansion is on State land, and...

    Exactly. You can invest in all the high-tech equipment you want. Unless it converts into earnings/EBITDA, it means almost nothing in terms of the value of the business.

    It's 61 miles as a the crow flies, and at the same latitude. It's a distinction w/o a difference.

    The big difference is that the OP referred to terrain in the Castelrock, North Lynx and Gate...

    Also, the pic makes it look steeper than it is. It's pretty mellow - almost too flat for a good park IMO.

    It's a great idea if topping out at Belt/Wayout cross. Outside of some pre-lunch and end of day traffic, it would actually draw skiers off of those trails and keep them lapping what would be the...

    I think they named it based on the direction the trails faced when going down the mountain vs. the actual geographic proximity to each other.

    Say what you want, but irrespective of where he topped out or how he got there, he is unarguably the best steward/owner SB has had in many decades, perhaps since its founding. In an era where skiing...
