    Not advocating for grooming but always wondered if trails like upper wildcat would benefit from blowing a bulletproof base early season with a single groomer run prior to a deep freeze, then dont touch it the rest of the year - solstice proper at the crotch may be another example.

    Rumor is they are going for the Stony Brook area at Attitash after the new summit lift in 2-3 years.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    Re: your conversation with employees. I heard via liftblog that Vail usually waits a year before making any updates. They like to see the kinks themselves before deciding how to fix them. Seems totally reasonable. It's hard to find a optimal solutions without really understanding the problems first.

    It's also hard to make any changes when you have to honor all the deals and contracts already in place.



    Wait a season, many of those obligation would disappear. Much less baggage to handle.

    There are no such rumors even within highest Attitash management. They have heard nothing, and do not expect to until the deal is done. Until then it's business as usual, but long term agreements and major purchases have been scaled back or nixed.

    A big part of Vail's business strategy is that there are no deals.

    BOGOs disappear, ski club days will either go away or slowly diminish (boiling frog style), no more fun discount days, etc...

    Kill off everything that even remotely lets people save money on tickets & simultaneously RAISE the price of tickets to pricepoints that are disconnected from financial reality, all in a bid to "force" people onto passes.

    Is a Hunter bus trip from Manhattan going to cost $200+ now? Maybe there is a silver lining in this.

    Silver lining... Do you think the NYC yuppies will balk at that price?

    Or do you think they'll start slumming it at Bellearye?
