    Nobody with the last name of Boyd is what I have heard. Sorry to disappoint you.

    If you read the Ski Area Management report on this, sounds like only 2 people, both GM's at an Ohio and one of the last year acquired Snow-time middle Atlantic resorts got the immediate axe. The rest will be kept on until April or in some cases October and potentially offered different jobs in Vail Resorts, which I somewhat read as a "challenge" for those affected to show what they have and why they should be kept on with Vail Resorts challenge this winter.

    84 out of roughly 10,000 employees (full and part time/seasonal) isn't exactly a massive culling of the heard. Although I will say that this probably won't be the last layoffs that Vail Resorts makes of Peak employees as they go through a season or 2 and see what talent they have and how much consolidation they may or may not to make...

    positions will be eliminated in several departments, including human resources, finance and accounting, IT, health and safety, marketing, operations, real estate, reservations, retail/rental, and sales. In some cases, entire departments were given notice that their employment was ending come spring. Most corporate-level positions carried over from Peak Resorts are being eliminated.
    Told y'all. Even got virtually every department correct. Didnt have "health & safety", as I have no clue what that is, but this behaviour is S.O.P. in most acquisitions with obvious significant vertical integration opportunities for cost savings.

    The only bit that surprises me is HOW much TIME they're giving these employees, as 5.5 months is a LONG lead-out. This suggests to me that Vail believes much of what these folks currently do, is only minimally necessary or no longer necessary at all (i.e. Broomfield's got this).

    Are there any discounts or other benefits for Epic pass holders this year at the former Peak resorts? Only Stowe and Okemo are listed at https://www.epicpass.com/benefits/ep...northeast.aspx (Also says Mount Sunapee benefits to come “Summer 2019”)

    I was at Mt Snow’s retail shop on Thursday. A clerk told me that they still give discounts for Peak pass holders. If you’ve upgraded to Epic, no discount.

    No discounts for Epic pass holders, only for people who kept their Peaks pass.

    How has the start to your season been?

    Short of an occasional logo item or the need for some chapstick or suncreen since I forgot it at the condo, I've always been way more of a fan of buying my gear at the local, independent ski shops in the Valley rather than at Mount Snow's retail shops.

    Won't change my shopping habits at all

    Same here (except replace mt snow with sugarbush in my case). Not only are prices usually better anyway in the off mountain shops, but several of them know me and give me extra discounts anyway!

    Only exception is Mount Snow Bootworks. Wouldn't trust anyone else!
