    I think we all know this was never an "investment" and was always a ticket to the front of the green card line.

    That being said, I still have a hard time arguing the state of VT aided and abetted...

    I just stayed at the Huntley a month ago and the place was old and shitty, but slopeside and allowed dogs.

    They literally have a sign in every room saying they are "historic" so here are some...

    The previous year saw Colorado, California and Utah all have well below average snow years. Jackson may not beat Utah most of the time, but we are remarkably consistent and drew large increases from...

    Yep. Jackson consistently is only open from Thanksgiving to the first week of April, regardless of conditions.

    Final number was an 80,600 skier visit increase to Jackson last year. 715k total.

    Right, a bunch of frugal Mormons are spending thousands on skiing then bitching about 5-20 bucks to park.

    I don't disagree Utah isn't filled with people that one would consider cheap, but those...

    The place is screwed due to the Berry's but keep on arguing semantics like they matter champ. Whether they have been closed for 4.34 years or 5 is irrelevant, what isn't is why, and the why is the...

    On the irrational confidence scale, the Berry family has to be running at like a 9 out of 10 if they thought they could welch on this deal in hopes of spawning a bidding war, after this mountain has...

    This whole conversation started about oil and gas subsidies. You leaving out the profit centers most reliant on oil and gas subsidies to obfuscate Exxon's reality is just bizarre.

    You whole point was that the government is making like 6-10x as much money as Exxon is, which is laughably false. Conveniently leaving out Exxon's largest profit center is not just some "ancillary...

    Because your poor hypothetical family already dropped 2600 bucks on passes, plus gear, etc. 200 bucks to park is less than an 8% increase in cost just on passes alone, less than 5 if they are really...

    And........ there is already a free bus you could take instead. That 4-800 is a matter of pure luxury.

    Nevermind this hypothetical family of locals getting squeezed would only pay $5 to park...

    This is only partially true. These numbers only take into account profit on refined gasoline, and completely ignores any profits from the extraction and sale of crude oil directly. Conveniently,...

    A family skiing Solitude as locals, requires at a minimum, $2600 bucks a year plus gear. They can swing the 10 to 20 to park.

    Or take a bus, that already exists, for free. I personally hate the...

    I'm sure there is some regional variation, but I've always heard that the snowfall amounts in Europe pale in comparison to the US. Like around 100-150 in a good year low so the equivalent of like...

    You want them to investigate and basically indict an entire state?

    I'm not that liberal but come on man, that seems a bit over the top.

    I think there is a distinct difference between the...

    Cottonwood is just basically a burb of SLC. It would make for a really lame "vacation" to just show up and stay at a Holiday Inn Express in the equivalent of Malden.

    Realistically, with Peak already being a 17 resort consortium, this consolidation already happened and Vail will still have to keep up with the additional volume, so a lot of these jobs are safe.

    I read it, where do you think I got those numbers. None of these are new, the setup has been in place since the Olympics were at Solitude.
