    I only started skiing at SB after Win purchased it, but I can without a doubt say that during that time I've seen many improvements that absolutely benefited us skiers (and boarders). I'd fully...

    Curious...does that mean you'll be at Stowe less? Or are you skiing more overall? Or are there other places you're now skipping?

    As long as there is sufficient snow-pack on the access routes into Slide Brook and as long as the temps are above a certain value (5, 10, something like that...can't remember exactly), then the...

    Yea...I mean, mechanical things always go exactly as planned. Shit happens... I'm no Vail fanboy either. I don't ski at any of the Vail (or legacy Peaks resorts) and I still think your comments are...

    I suspected you're around my age honestly (mid to late 30s). A lot has changed in just the last 5-10 years though.

    I was thinking that too. Now information is available literally in the palm of your hand with everyone having smartphones. I'm sure BG is right that there are some completely clueless people that are...

    If they were your wife's friends though and started after you got your wife into the sport, shouldn't you or your wife have been helping them know how to get deals? :smile:

    Personally I agree with this. I suspect I'm not the only one either... (of course this could also partly be out of selfishness where I don't want to see it be more popular!)

    Yes, an excellent point. I've personally benefited from this change as well. It is absolutely one of the best (and most cost effective) times to be a season pass holder.



    Hmm, I don't know how...

    I'd argue that's a "feature, not a bug" even at the non-Epic/Ikon places. Simply put, the big resorts want you buying season passes (or some other form of advance commitment such as discount cards,...

    I think the answer depends a lot on where they want to ski. I went to college in Rochester NY. We used to typically go to Bristol to ski (45 minutes away). Back then when we wanted to ski for cheap,...

    I'd agree. And I think most people would agree with you. But I think we're safe on the Slide brook front no matter what some people want as I seem to recall some sort of agreement that prohibits any...

    Much easier for an individual owner/resort to decide to sell than it would be for a larger company to agree to sell off one of their major assets. Powdr would have to be in major financial trouble or...

    Just saw Jay announced an earlier opening than scheduled - now opening November 22nd instead of the original November 29th date.

    Interesting arguments and I can see both sides. I understand the reason for benefits from work for parental leave. Skiing however is a "luxury" to begin with so I think it is a bit different. For...

    Yup...you hit the nail on the head with the primary concern. It is reassuring to know that Win is staying on though. I'd be much more worried if he wasn't going to still be here.

    I'm not exactly sure I follow you on the capital investments at Stowe dwarfing the ones at SB. I really only see 2 areas where Stowe outpaced SB in the recent past (and they are mostly pre-Vail) -...

    I tend to agree with you. SB doesn't have a particularly aggressive opening date now and I don't see them pushing it back further. Keep in mind that Alterra presumably would rather people ski at...

    Ahh...when you said "departure" I was thinking the lower terminus (i.e. when the lift first "takes off"). Yea, the top is a bit of a challenge with having to go uphill a bit, but wind is a major...

    Interesting comment about the departure terminal. I've never really thought about that.

    As for lift age, can you really still consider a lift 40 years old if the majority of the electronics and...

    Curious what you think is so bad about HG? Reliability has not been an issue at all the past couple seasons. Capacity I wouldn't want to see increased as I don't think the trails at the summit could...

    I don't really see a HG replacement as a priority considering all the work they put into it a few years ago. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd rather see them focus on Hawk's snowmaking upgrade first.

    You can believe that if you want, but that's not actually the case unless a resort specifically allows it. Most passes/tickets clearly say "non-transferable" on them or when you purchase them. If you...
