    Ski resorts are by definition manmade “eyesore” in the mountain. Trails, lift/snowgun towers, etc. Not to mention us, crawling all over the place like ants on a sugar pile. But they’re all part of the deal of our presence.

    Is this not an “eyesore”?

    Not for me, really. Nor is this -

    That Sunapee sign for me looks like it belongs on the side of a bus

    Almost "Q-Burke" levels of arrogance, for no reason

    re: abc ... the sign is superfluous at best for a meager summit elevation, to have the view obstructed to note such mediocrity as if it were a greater aspect than the view itself. The sign is clearly not at the actual USGS recognized summit, so it comes across as a gimmick.

    I'm glad Sunapee sucks in the crowds because after my last time there about 8 years ago I have no interest in returning.

    Ya'll are pretty uptight. This sign has been at the top of Wildcat for many years now. Also clearly not at the true 4062 elevation. I ski right by it and think nothing of it. Lots of families always there taking pictures to remember their day. Good for them.

    That's a halfway respectable elevation for one thing, also not placed in the middle of a primary trail off the "summit"

    Still it's a weak sign that if anything negatively affects the view... gapers with their camera/phones already in their hands may disagree.. if I was trying to get a photo I'd ski to a position that was out of my view. You like this view?, here's our tattoo.

    I'm so disgusted I just puked all over my keyboard while simultaneously shitting in my pants.

    Except that isn’t “the view”!

    A far better view is another 10-20 yards further where the trails wider and trees are less constricted.

    Mind you, none of the “views” are natural. They’re only open because the ski trails were cut and the trees dead... So get over it, it’s a largely man made setting.
