    Mountain didn't ski half bad this weekend and I was happy with the lack of crowds. Maybe the forecast of mixed precip kept people away. I skied a few hours midday right up until the time I started getting really glazed like a donut with ice, and then a couple more hours on Sunday morning off the fixed grip lifts while they got the detachables de-iced. I think they had everything running by mid-morning.

    Snow report today said they were making snow, so that's a positive.

    Oh Iím sure thatís the attitude around there. The employee and manager base at Mount Snow was very sub par to begin with. The marginal half competent staff left has now seen 2 rounds of cuts. Iím sure they know time could be limited. Donít blame them really. No reason to care or put in effort when youíre gonna get fired in a few months.

    Vail really bought themselves a pile of shit that they are going to need to turn around before next winter. Luckily nothing happens in summer there and they can run a super lean crew while replacing the key people needed.

    My question to the poor suckers who still ski there on the reg - how bad is it? How much of a noticeable difference in attitudes and work ethic? Has the time come yet where the plug has been pulled on money getting thrown at dumb stuff? Itís been a sub par winter for snow and revenue - I feel like snowmaking has to be about wrapped up. I canít see Vail throwing any money at parks for rest of the year. Just grind it all out till the end. Iíd assume they shut down earlier then normal? First week April?

    When is the last time you've skied there? Has to be recent and frequent to have the level of knowledge you claim to have about their staff and operations.

    You've had sand in your vagina over the place since day one of you signing up for this forum. It's oddly obsessive and juvenile to virtually anyone that reads your drivel, but I'm more curious about your personal experience.

    What say you Sandy V?

    They might shut down first week of April unless the snowfall picks up. I'm just hoping NoVT holds up for end of March into April... got a week booked up in Stowe.

    Their V.P. of Projects (someone he frequently discussed) left for Boyne, so there's one less thing to have to listen to.

    Surprised his head fit through a door for an interview. He was gonna get fired at season end - he knew it. Useless position.
