    Exactly. Park City is another decent example, it didn't matter how many locals they pizzed off this year, Vail still closed Park City on the scheduled date with many feet of snow covering the trails. Vail is ruthlessly efficient in the pursuit of profit, and they dont care about your feelings. At all. LOL
    But there does seem to be a change in Vails attitude towards early and late season operations at some resorts. Who knows, maybe they will test the waters at some of their resorts outside of CO.

    It has to sell to someone, it can't stay under a receivership forever. If the price goes low enough, someone will pick it up an attempt to make a run with it.

    I'd be more surprised if Mt Snow early season plans change vs. April close. I think there is more bang for the buck pushing for early opening than staying open as late as possible. That said April close is typically the first or second weekend of April, so at most the locals lose a weekend. IMHO.

    Lots of businesses go unsold if they are money losing propositions. There is no "right price" for something that loses money and has no hope of turning a profit.

    Yeah, it makes no sense to change that. One lift, few staff, and a good chunk of terrain weather permitting.

    There is a price where Burke makes money - although it could be less than zero.......

    Yeah, saw that after posting. No refund for me but still a deal I wont complain about. Mind not blown after all.

    RIP Wildcat---May 2019.



    Will Vail keep it the same anti-grooming/hardcore vibe?

    Sad that the skiing industry is now one large company. If I were New Hampshire I'd force them to give up Wildcat. But then again I'm from Mass, and New Hampshire probably loves huge businesses taking over their state, screwing over locals.
