    If you look at the stock price it is on its way up. People anticipating a buy?

    Or California, Colorado, and Utah are having a REALLY good winter after about five years of drought and revenues are up.

    That's not the kind of thing that usually drives a stock up. Dumb purchases usually crush a stock, good purchases are mostly neutral or slightly negative until it becomes clear it was a good investment.

    Looks like its been rising for 10 days so must be another reason. Looks like its the snow and/or something that has to do with the general economy.

    I selfishly would prefer that they purchase the Boyne trio of NE ski areas. It would cover more ground for them in NE and would be more consistent with their pass pricing structure. I'd go back to Boyne instantly assuming that they'd be incorporated into the standard Epic pass.

    The bad news is that the already serious weekend crowds would reach EPIC-demic (sorry) proportions at those areas. But I'm a weekday guy. Again, I'm selfish.
    Well that would be a nice infusion of cash for these three, doubt Vail would attempt. Boyne holds long term operating leases and my understanding is they have an option to buy on SL/SR (the Loon deal is different).

    Yup do not think Vail wants operating leases. As far as stock prices. These huge snow events for Colorado Utah and California as well as the purchase of Whistler are probably more of a driver.

    no press release but wall street now talking...



    http://www.thestreet.com/story/13971...-mountain.html

    in this article it says "nothing has been written or signed." this is consistent with what I've heard this past week. there was a handshake deal done, but nothing official. I think a lot of it is hinging on the price & potential Toll House area development. If there are no major obstacles to developing Toll House the deal could reach $500mil. But if there are land/development issues (and this being VT, there almost certainly is) it could be in the $275-300mil range. This is obviously very speculative, but I've talked to people pretty close to the situation.
