    As expected. The only rational decision in a period of economic uncertainty.

    Vail taking-on too much debt just really makes me shed a tear.

    I do, but I think that's more the niche AZ' types. Nevertheless, even if not, it's really not "March & April", so much as mid-March & April. I think most closed around March 15th'ish.

    I read an article a few days ago that this is happening more & more, people are taking the enforcement of Social Distancing into their own hands by calling the authorities. It's happened quite a bit...

    I think 1/3 seems a bit drastic. They're empty in April, and no major revenue period falls in March.

    Can you better define that for those who've never been?

    As a N.A. skier, I consider Whiteface the worst snow quality in my world.

    I've only been to Grand Junction once, on my way to Moab, but I had no idea there was a ski area there until now, and wouldnt have believed it before reading this thread.

    Unless your balance sheet is bulletproof, it would be irresponsible to spend many millions of dollars on multiple lift installs right now in this climate of financial uncertainty.

    It's a huge number, somewhere between 33% (Italian study) & almost 50% (Diamond Princess study) depending upon the study. Nevertheless, even if you go with 50% you cant get to 20% already having it.

    It's not possible for 2 reasons, one obvious, one not so obvious.

    The obvious reason is that were you to assume a possible >= 20% pop COVID19+ infection rate already, that's 66M infected...

    Nowhere near 20% of Americans have has COVID19 already, we know that from the testing data we currently have.

    I doubt it's necessary, but purely from a hedging standpoint I think it's a smart, conservative decision.

    I'm supposed to be towards the end of a 9-day trip skiing mostly Smuggler's Notch & Jay Peak. Dont know how the conditions would have been, probably spring'ish.

    This is not going to happen, because it literally cannot happen financially.

    Businesses cannot all stay closed another year. Now you're talking about 100% the "fix" being worse than the actual...

    It will be interesting to see if they actually do go through with all of them though.

    No CEO will say a plan is cancelled, until a plan is cancelled.

    Good luck getting that passed.

    You'd have both Democrats & Republicans fighting against both Democrats & Republicans.

    Not as much of a benefit, but it does provide market liquidity as well as boost the market which helps with wealth effect. So not entirely useless.

    I had 4 prepaid lift tickets I planned to use on vacation this week, they're honoring them until 12/24/20. Would rather they be honored late-season instead, but better than nothing.

    You'll get $2,400 since you're married. I'll get $2,900 due to offspring.

    For you and I, this money perhaps doesn't matter, but for a couple with $1,000/month rent & retail jobs that they just...

    False, although sort of true.

    It is my understanding that the semantics of this are it is considered a tax credit, but it's a new one for 2020. So it's kind of semantics because if COVID19...

    All valid points.

    I fear for the housing market most of all, as it was already unrealistically too expensive to begin with & IMO near or at Housing Bubble 2.0 levels in many, if not most, US...

    You say that sarcastically, and I'm not talking about this specific AZ instance, but rather everyone in general, and I'm starting to think that society treating these selfish people like social...

    So much $$$$ is being injected into the economy I'd worry more about inflation as a significant risk in a few years than deflation.

    It may be optimistic thinking, but I'm not convinced the US...
