    $16 for VZ & $15 for GB cash. Do you think they'll be charging more for a couple of hour session in the dome?

    Seriously? You guys actually pay that? Ouch. I am surprised the voters allow such a thing.

    How else could NYC have such a low 10% state & city income tax rate and 8.875% sales tax if not for $15 bridge toll?

    I'm sure that jumps and rails cause way more injuries than low-angle seeded bump runs, but you may be right. Alternative is to get a group and ski the same line over and over again until natural bumps form.

    $126 for trucks with six axles. Nice!

    $15 to come back to NYC through the tunnel though. GWB same thing, free outbound, $15 to come back. Lets not forget the NJ Turnpike tolls either, they charge both ways.

    I don't know how bumps increase liability. You can't sue them for falling in bumps and getting hurt. Bumps are probably much safer than groomers.

    Oh but you can. That's the beauty of America! Everyone remember the hot coffee McDonald's case? I don't see how that's much different than this in terms of the level of stupidity. I also think that it might be different than a ski resort because it'll attract potentially a much different demographic.

    Good point about groomers though.
