    And what if 2 people connect, does it only play the 1st person who go it to connect?
    I might suggest a little hunting trip to release some of that pent up anger.

    Once Jay Peak is sold to an entity with cash in its' pockets, BTES may be needed. I'm pretty sure the prior successful excuse to stop it was stormwater runoff that would take several years to clear, but those years have since passed. So the eco-extremists will need a bogus excuse this time and it will have to be either claiming the streams need more years of recovery than prior thought, or revive the silly bird excuse.

    This genuinely sounds like one of the worst ski-related ideas I've heard in eons.

    Shows up at the mountain for nature, peace, and tranquility, gets subjected to 14 minutes of a fifteen year olds gangster rap selection.

    The folks I rode with were considerate. But it was a Sunday in April and the traffic was light. I imagine that there are few rap listeners who ski/ride Ajax.

    Exactly. That phenomenon is annoying. As is the guy I saw last year with his RC Truck on a hike.

    You guys aren't Thoreau retreating to the wilderness when you go skiing and ride a gondola and surround yourself in a manmade version of nature.

    People are going to listen to music from time to time. I see this as really not that different than background music in a lodge/elevator or the like ultimately.

    I never get people who listen to music while skiing or hiking. Nor do I care for the "background music" in elevator or lodge either. I felt it's more or less a waste of air wave. (I'm just not one for "background music". I either listen to it, or wants silence, nothing in the "background")

    That said, as long as they keep the volume low enough without forcing me to listen to it, I don't have a problem.

    Gondola music? If others are forced to listen, that could be a problem. Though somehow I doubt that's the plan.

    During my first season in Jackson a buddy of mine decided to turn the horn on the bucking bronc logo into a penis and drew in a gal riding it with a sharpie. He later found out that the terminals have cameras and they figured out he did it. I think they called the sheriff if I remember correctly.

    The next season the horns were removed form their logo.
