    Sunday River Shutting Their Community Board

    It is unfortunate that SR posted today that they are planning to shut down their community page. Many real-life (not just virtual) friendships have been created through that site. Multiple charities have been supported annually. Many people have used/lurked on that site for years to obtain information about the mountain who do not follow other social media sites.

    I guess there’s no money to be made on those discussion boards?

    When Killington shut down their message board it inspired a few users to start up kzone. Maybe something similar happens at SR.

    Dumb. Sundary River voluntarily giving up control of any aspect of their social media messaging is foolish.

    Yes, but seems like they are the last in the line to do so. New board is up and running great. You think that is bad, you should see the season passholder survey. It's just a generic visitor survey, they leave so much potential data on the table not tailoring it to the actual season pass customer.

    I'm not a SR pass holder, so I know nothing of it. As a Killington (and Epic) pass holder, I can unequivocally state that both treat their pass holders well. Mike Solimano and Killington clearly values his "base", and while decisions on mountain aren't driven by that demographic, their voices are definitely listened to and heard. Pass holder surveys specifically asked about what sort of improvements were a priority. The restoration of lift service to South Ridge is certainly evidence of that. And although there is a very vocal minority on Kzone that love the Snowdon Quad, in general they are individuals with a lot of time on their hands. The majority are grateful to see it replaced.

    Boyne gets kudos from me for (finally) buying back their resorts from the REITs. Took me by surprise, I'd have thought this would have happened when CNL sold them off a few years back. I'd love to know what changed in the few intervening years. I dislike ownership of ski areas by REITs: it means the operators are no longer in control of capital spending. Hopefully this will mean new lifts for the 'loaf and the River, other than when something fails catastrophically.
