    A week is from Sunday to Saturday. Some of those weeks after pres day are still profitable.

    Yes I got that, but the money is made over the weekend so its the weekend that drives whether the week has been profitable or not.
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Also would like to mention that when Mount Snow opens, they dont require any "stairway to hell".

    That stairway made me a one-and-doner for the whole Killington early season shitshow. Dont see how that will change any time soon

    And this ignores the theoretical situation where Mt Snow opens only Canyon (even less vertical) or the North Face (less vertical, higher base elevation).

    Mt Snow wins based on output.
    Sure.....

    Just look at the stats. Mt Snow has NEVER opened before Wildcat.
    And we'll be skiing Top to Bottom while you're all downloading IF lucky.

    Well I was curious so I did just look at the stats. In 2016 Mt Snow opened on November 23rd while Wildcat opened on November 24th. So much for "never".

    In 2017 and 2018 they both opened the same days each year (November 11th in 2017 and October 27th in 2018 ). Also, fwiw, last year on opening day Mt Snow had the most open skiable terrain in the entire east.

    Additionally, it was in 2006 if I recall, the year Peak bought Mount Snow and installed the fan guns, they went big early, and I'm pretty sure only Sunday River and Mount Snow were open for the 1st week or 2 of the season

    I looked it up too, so maybe not Never, but certainly MOST years for the 35+ years I've worked in the industry Wildcat opened before Mt Snow.

    Those stats are actually not 100% correct as we skied 2 days before they were open according to your 2016 stats. 11/22 was a "soft opening" and 11/23/16 was Game On

    No worries
    Bet is still on: Put your $$ where your mouth is.....

    Well, unless anyone here is making the decisions when to open or not, such currency is quite useless.

    They also only upgraded their snowmaking system a few years ago (2016 might have been the first year to show it off). So anything before that definitely goes to Wildcat with the geographical advantage. That snowmaking upgrade negated that Wildcat advantage though and leveled the playing field between the two.

    The real question though is what Vail will choose to do once they begin making decisions. This year will be business as usual and I'd expect both to open roughly the same date. Next year will be much more telling. Personally I don't care one way or the other as I don't ski at either resort. Still will be interesting to see what kind of decisions Vail makes once they're calling the shots.
