    It wound up that apparently as I recall, they forgot to calculate in the water tanks for the summit lodge on each tram. And something to do with the anchoring not being rated for the actual cabin...

    Yeah, it's called a 50 or 60 passenger box that is only allowed to carry what, 40 people at a time now?

    You can definitely ski while WC is going on, last year it was North Ridge into the Canyon and Snowden IIRC. Good November last year though, I don't believe there was nearly as much the previous...

    Happens a lot, resorts can save a few bucks by ordering less than a full complement of carriers for a brand new lift. Bretton Woods new Gondola will not have a full complement of cabins compared to...

    Both Big Sky and Taos can be a bit risky that early in the season. Big Sky is a bit better, it does have some snowmaking if thin but Lone Peak is very Rocky and needs a lot of the dry snow they tend...

    Where it is now, yup. T-Bar towers on-site in the overflow lot by Snow Cap Inn now. Barker pond is being dredged (they drained it so must have something to do with snowmaking) and in town, the...

    Not Bozeman either. Southwest has zero flights to WY and MT. Boise is the only option in that three state range on Southwest (make it five and include ND/SD too.) And you cannot get from the East...

    If we are talking Jackson, WY, this Southwest story of yours is a tall tale. The closest Southwest gets to Jackson is Boise, ID.

    Probably equal to or greater than Utah. A lot more people in the Bay and Sacramento areas within driving distance than Utah has I would imagine. Plus the relatively quick flights up from LA/San...

    I would think Pat's will be fine, maybe even an uptick in business, especially night skiing if Vail increases Crotched's ticket price substantially. Should be interesting to see. We looked at a...

    They had moved some of the plans along but nothing imminent to my knowledge at Sunapee. I feel like Stowe Mansfield side could use some lift modernization, especially considering Vail considers it a...

    I'm still waiting to see Vail spend any significant money in the East. They have not to date with Stowe/Okemo/Sunapee. $15million the next 2 years across 17 areas doesn't have enough for lifts. ...

    What makes anyone think Vail will be quick to do much of anything liftwise in the East? They haven't done squat at Stowe/Okemo/Sunapee yet.
