    Skiing on the Cheap - 2022-23

    Either demand skyrocketed this year, or the number for sale decreased (my money's on the latter).

    Electric Cars/Trucks and winter weather testing with results. What do you think? Who has taken one in Freezing cold long distance to a Ski mountain?

    I'm not a believer. There's a smallcap called Hyzon Motors (HYZN) if you're interested in that sort of thing though. https://www.hyzonmotors.com/

    Vote for Utah ski bus

    My prediction: 1) The gondola eventually gets killed (perhaps after "winning" the choice & it being stated it will 100% go forth, but DOA at some point in the future, possibly during the interim bus plan, which will superficially appear successful). 2) They go forward with some completely...

    Electric Cars/Trucks and winter weather testing with results. What do you think? Who has taken one in Freezing cold long distance to a Ski mountain?

    Oh, and one thing to add on the subject of current battery problems, even though it's a moot point. Betamax vs. VHS - I'm not old enough to know, but I've heard beta was actually better than VHS, but due to poor Betamax business planning and savvy VHS marketing, VHS won out. I think a similar...

    I invest in this space and know it fairly well from mineral extraction to end product. Most of the most important topics have already been covered, so I'll just briefly add the few things I've seen not mentioned. 1) Net EV cars are mythical as a mermaid - If you add up all the vehicles all the...

    Day tickets going through the roof in Vermont

    Something, something, thank god Vail at least cultivates the tiny feeder hills, something, something, something.....

    Ikon Pass Changes and New Resorts for 2023

    Did you read it closely? This punishing settlement is really heads Alterra wins, tails Alterra doesn't lose.

    VAIL SUCKS

    That company's going to know how often you have sex & take a BM before its done.

    A beer or drink at Lunch, a warming shot on the Lift, a sip in the Woods. Do you?? Don't you?? How far have you seen a person drink and Ski or ride??

    His cost is $2,235 a year based on his figures. Based on your stated consumption, your cost is $1,642.50 based on $15 AVG bottle, and you match his annual cost at $20.41 per bottle.

    Stowe Thread

    Thanks for that clarification, that to me makes it a no-brainer then. Reason #4,582 why Vail sucks.

    Jay Peak bombshell

    It would be interesting to know how all the grift amenities of Jay Peak each do on their own two feet. The golf course is very nice, but I dont see it swamped either, so it would be interesting to know if it's profitable or just break even or so. The other thing with golf is if you're not...

    Jay Peak bombshell

    Tell me you know nothing about Jay Peak's history without telling me you know nothing about Jay Peak's history.

    Stowe Thread

    Let's do some math. Pre-Vail a Stowe season pass was roughly $2,200 IIRC, but the mountain wasn't a total chaotic zoo. Now it's only $879, but that's spurious as you're forced to buy a $450 parking pass = $1,329, but it's a total chaotic zoo. The variance is $871 (even less if we include how...

    Day tickets going through the roof in Vermont

    But apparently "happier" than "voluntarily" spending far more of your income on a non-Chinese source. Hmmm.....

    A beer or drink at Lunch, a warming shot on the Lift, a sip in the Woods. Do you?? Don't you?? How far have you seen a person drink and Ski or ride??

    Never; I just don't think it's responsible. Apres-ski I like to allow myself one IPA followed by a handful of Miller Lites. If on ski vacation I love drinking outside in the hot tub with the can residing in a snow koozie.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Not even close. Lots more juice can be incrementally squeezed from various lemons. Just squeeze slowly. My belief has always been that the "unprecedented cheap skiing" will get much closer to the "old expensive skiing" eventually, for all but the thriftiest of skiers who can navigate the...

    Vote for Utah ski bus

    I assumed you'd think they are evil, gas-guzzling, earth wreckers. But I dont really consider a Rogue Sport an SUV. After SUVs got popular everything started being called an SUV, even tiny station wagons with AWD. For instance, my wife drives a Subaru Crosstrek = same thing, I dont really...

    Last ski season 2021-2022 was the busiest US ski season ever with almost 61 million snow visits

    Being sued is bad enough, but getting sued by a zombie dentist is terrifying.
