They need to make sure it's well connected to the snow mobile and ATV trails and welcome both. I imagine skiing trackless powder every run there if they ever did develop all that they want to.
    It was a destination resort when people traveled by train and before air conditioning existed. Those days are long gone.

    Bigger than killington?

    If this is done right they could probably make it successful.

    What other attractions could separate them from other eastern resorts?

    The outdoor thermo hot baths. Obviously artificial as we do not have volcanic activity to support natural one's, but I know the baths are a key component to be completed before early buyers are triggered into actual payments on their unit shares.

    Well, basically on the same level as what Jay Peak sees Rainwise. The difference between the two if the Balsams happens is the Balsams will have a snowmaking system that will allow for rapid recovery where as of now, Jay does not.

    Hilarious to me that this is still getting kicked around. This albatross should be euthanized.

    It is likely the Balsams snowmaking system will mostly be provided by the investor's tears.
