    Or maybe they could run it as a separate luxury destination without the private club element. The basic infrastructure is already there. Market is as a high-end spa with skiing for the kids. Basically a Vail-East experience for people too busy to go West. I guess that maybe cuts in one of Stowe's target demographics, though.

    Guesstimating off google maps, it's about 370 feet from the numbers to the centerline of the fairway. At a standard approach angle for an airplane trying to stick the numbers before the flare, that puts you 23 feet above runway elevation when you're over the fairway.

    There's not very many places you need a horn for an airplane, but that might be one of them.

    *IF* the that airport ever reopens, I'll make sure NOT to tell my son this, as one of his "favorite" things to do when at a golf driving range is to try and hit the range picking vehicle if it's out there.... I'm sure in the mind of a teenage male, especially if he was out on the course with some of his other teenage male ski and golf buddies and a plane was on approach, it wouldn't be that far of a leap in their minds to say "range cart target" ='s "airplane"

    I think Vail is the best chance at a sale as a going concern, though. They have the most to gain from Haystack out of anyone - especially if they can run it as part of Mount Snow. Otherwise, the value of the individual assets probably exceed the value of the business as a going concern.

    There was a group of members trying to buy it from Barnes before it got this bad and he refused. But who knows if they would still be interested in it.

    I've flown there, it's a sidewalk in a hilly area with a weak instrument approach. That means tough to get in when you have lots of low overcast, like in the winter. It's a short runway, 2.600 feet, so that means a single engine or something llike a Cape Air 402, not a jet. Still, it's a runway far closer to a ski area than anywhere else I can think of in the east.
    The runway may be short but Im more intrigued by all of that above tree line terrain just left of the ski area summit. Any chance to get a lift up there into those alpine snowfields?

    Correct, this area is not snowfields, but judging by the unique shape of haystacks summit (some people have even claimed its a dormant volcano) Id say that there would be some good back-country vertical in the area over Haystack Pond.

    Anyone ever have a chance to ski that area of the summit?

    Of the few times ive skied there, Id say the Enchanted Forrest Glades are as good (and empty) as they get for New England Tree Skiing

    First pieces of Hermitage have been approved to be removed and sold off by a creditor.
