    Yes it was canceled about a month or two ago. My wife and talked about it with owners of The Ride and Ski Card. He knew back in August. as a vendor.

    Your 2021 / 2022 Ski Season Thread

    Wait until they are in their late teens and early 20s they will kick you ass. We have for boys with no fear and it caused my wife to become a better skier. She did not know how to ski when they were born. We started them all around 3 and 4 in camps and lessons and my wife learned through...

    VAIL SUCKS

    What is your deal! Why require masks walking into a restaurant and then allow people to sit with out masks very close to each other. Please explain that to me. There was a outdoor beer garden that was packed no masks required! Boston College games are packed - no masks required. I follow...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    You are right! For some the hustle and bustle is part of the vibe. Not so much for me these days. Prior to moving to Colorado I was all for it, Returning to Boston no longer like it so much. Certainly are many who are will the pay that is for sure.

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    I understand that - but I am not finding the value. you pay $40 to park, pay way more for the same quality and in Boston these days you are now fighting crowds. The wait staff certainly are making more and their tips will surely be much better but that does not count towards the price of the...

    VAIL SUCKS

    I saw some complaints regarding the confusing messaging regarding vaccinations in cafeterias. Boston is toping that - face masks are again required to enter restaurants but once seated you can be shoulder to shoulder at the bar or very close at a table. I feel like people want to do something...

    Palisades Tahoe

    I am 30% Native American (Algonquin) and when I lived in Colorado I had Navajo friends and they all used Native American. I think people over think this topic. In Colorado they passed a bill to remove names of schools that had tribe name and mascots and Native American Guardian's Association...

    Vail's Big Northeast Improvements- 2022-2023

    Attitash Let me stop you right there, because I know what you’re thinking. It’s what everyone is thinking: why not replace the Summit Triple? It’s old. It’s unreliable. You can watch Dances With Wolves from beginning to end on the ride to the top. Why not replace it with… something? First: it...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    Well I beg to differ on prices. Went to the seaport district in Boston. Many restaurants there where prices are pretty high and the restaurants are all packed. We were there on Saturday. The shear number of people there was crazy. Masks were required to enter buildings. But a Beer garden...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    I agree! When there were no dine-in restaurants, we would go pick up food then throw it back in the oven to reheat it, Then we started tailgating. There were to go adult bevs and the food was eaten immediately - all you needed were a few sports chairs, Was like camping outside of the eatery...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    My wife and I were never concerned about eating out. Starting in Moab in May of last year where dinning in was allowed, to the following months as restaurants opened up, we ate out frequently because we took a stay outside approach and traveled. Even to this day we eat out several times per...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    Responses in blue. I am not trying to say that the numbers will be crazy for those vaccinated but we will see where things go next. I am also not saying the vaccines are not effective. However, how many starts and stops happened over the past 18 months where spikes followed periods of feeling...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    No I am not - the vaccine helps to reduce symptoms and some may even be asymptomatic - also slows transmission possibly. I am vaccinated. My point was that while the vaccine has its benefits, that are many who are getting covid again. Once they have covid again they become silent or unknowing...
