    Does it always piss hot rain right before or on Christmas in eastern ski country or does if just seem that way?

    Same. I have never had an issue with the language barrier - and I have been all over Quebec. And just use your credit card. No need to use that funny money.

    Jay Peak bombshell

    So now that the whole saga is over, I have an interesting story. Some of you may remember that I used to post quite a bit about my suspicions that the EB-5 program at Jay Peak was a scam. It was basically Benedict Gomez and I leading the charge - with most people thinking that we were...

    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 drive all sorts of vehicles through my work. I usually have a vehicle for 2-4 weeks and then swap into something different. I absolutely love the Acadia. It's a great size and drives really nicely. And it's comfortable, too. The Denali version is pricey, but it's a beautiful vehicle. I...

    I’m worried that the new owners don’t understand the market.

    I wasn't thinking about muting you... until I realized that you don't know where the "CAP" key is located.

    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 own a Chevrolet Bolt. I don't have time to read the entire thread, so pardon me if this has been covered. In the winter, if I use my heater like I want to, my range loss is 35-40%. Level 3 chargers are notoriously unreliable and still take time even when they are working. I love my Bolt...

    i got bored and booked a 2 week ski trip

    1) Pay lots of money for the RV; 2) Pay to park it somewhere; 3) Pay to maintain the RV and find out how cheaply they are made; 4) Pay insane money for gas; 5) Try to find winter campsites and pay for them; 6) Watch your RV depreciate, especially when yours has exposure to lots of salt whereas...

    Jay Peak bombshell

    Any investor knows that some serious money needs to be spent on the mountain itself. All of these new hotels are great, but nothing was done to the mountain itself. No matter how you slice it, EB-5 proved to be a good way to waste millions of dollars. It's nice that Jay Peak got some...

    According to WCAX there is also $8.3 million in restitution. https://www.wcax.com/2022/04/20/2nd-kingdom-con-player-sentenced-18-mos-83m-restitution/

    Governor Shumlin and Quiros were VERY close friend, apparently. https://vtdigger.org/2022/02/01/just-between-you-and-me-fbi-records-reveal-an-eb-5-fraudsters-direct-line-to-gov-peter-shumlin/

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    The resort I am staying at in late February does not charge for a quarantine room if it is needed.

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    Rolling Stone claims that they are. True, they make up stories like college rape scandals. But they are not a satirical website, which is why your argument fails.

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    If you have to equate a news outlet to The Onion in order to prop up your position, it’s time to reassess your position.

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    Neither. I am referring to the fact that the media often failed to acknowledge that people were taking the form of the medication that is intended for human consumption - albeit for an off-label use. You know as well as I do that they wanted to give the impression by omission that the drug was...

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    Without getting into the efficacy of Ivermectin, I hope we all can agree that it was improper for the mainstream media to refer to a drug that has been properly prescribed to millions of people merely as "horse de-wormer."

    Permanent Industry Changes in the Post-COVID World

    The catch is that Omicron is likely much more contagious than the flu. That said, we can't stop it. Countries like New Zealand that are fans of widespread lockdowns are just delaying the inevitable.
