    If they are not closing until 11/4 and Cup T-Bar needs to be replaced, doesn't sound promising unless we have a warm fall and late start to winter. They did say they want to promote uphill skinning...

    Umm, SR has on occasion opened TTB off Locke as well and once in Aurora. Doesn't happen often due to how early they try to open, but they almost always make an attempt if temps allow.

    Given the pending Peaks buy, Vail will own outright 7 resorts in New England alone. They not having interest in Jay does not surprise me. Another buy, especially in VT, would increase any...

    Most places I've been with RFID at the busier lifts, they still have an attendant grouping people together and line control. Whatnot does is free up those employees from looking at passes. There is...
