    Wonder how many sales of Oxycodone it will take to fund a new lift at Attitash.

    I'd also suggest that public knowledge of this will result in the alienation of a not so insignificant amount of people. I certainly don't like that my money is going to the Sackler family. Those people are pure evil.

    I was just going to say this.

    I minimized my visits to Peaks resorts this winter to get the most out of my season passes to K and Belleayre/Gore/Whiteface. I only skied Peaks to socialize with old friends.

    But knowing the Sacklers own those places means the cord is cut for me I won't spend a dime at those places. Those are some horrible and evil people.

    My feelings are that though I have a moral conflict spending money that will benefit the Sacklers, any boycott by me would harm the employees of Wildcat more than that evil family.

    You also have the benefit of calling Wildcat your home which is far and away without any doubt the best ski area Peaks operates. I would be hard pressed to boycott them under those circumstances.

    But living 5.5 hours from Wildcat it's much easier for me I won't miss out on anything.

    fbgm has been stating this for years on here. So now they own a few more percentage points no real difference

    Free Oxy to come to a Peak Resorts near you

    More funny money into an already upside down company.

    I think this move is more to target the oxy and heroine epidemic in the Southern VT area. Now all the VT backwoods slime pushin H can see their dealers money at hard work in their backyard.

    I tend to agree. Boycotting a resort over who purchased their public stocks seems a bit extreme. You're causing far more damage to the local communities and people that work at these resorts than you are to people that may not even realize they have a controlling interest in the company (let's be honest...they probably have some finance hedge fund manager making these decisions and have no idea what they own as long as they see profits).
