    The town of Hunter pleaded with their mountain to close on Thursday, and continued to press them for action. They were concerned about the health of their community. I also have heard from multiple employees at various resorts that did not want to go to work, or were refusing. This isn't about you or me, this is about the communities around these ski areas.

    That’s the most coherent thing you’ve ever written. Kudos.

    His issue is with ski area management and there is no need for him to call people fools for being more understanding of the reality here.

    So whether he is right or wrong is irrelevant; there is no need to be rude here.

    It sucks for everyone else who skis too.

    As it should be, as do most people who've worked their lives in pharma. The bad actors who do terrible things get all the press & all the attention (often for political reasons), but the reality is most people in pharma are good people who are proud of what they create.

    Scotty speaks perfectly coherent English in person, but he doesn't type that way. There's no way he wrote that!

    And the reality is there is no safe way to do this. I went to stratton today for last licks. It was surprisingly crowded, and that plus loading lifts at half capacity resulted in big lift lines = dense crowd of people. It’s exactly what we are not supposed to be doing. I drove thru the night, skied for under 3 hours, and decided it wasn’t fun and that I and everyone else there were behaving selfishly and irresponsibly, and I called it a day (a season) and went home. It sucks, but there are more important things than getting the value out of your fucking quad pack.

    I ate my magic quad pack. Didn’t use it once. If magic/Geoff want to extend me a courtesy that would be great and I’d be very appreciative. But I’m not preemptively calling them out and personally insulting Geoff the way orca did to win. Win has been a valued member of this forum and the American ski community. Have some respect you selfish prick.

    Regardless Scotty is very sharp in person. He gets it.

    Yeah I'm sitting here losing interest in even going to Belleayre tomorrow. As much as I'd like to ski the season is pretty much over and I'd just as well avoid that last day that turned out to pretty much suck. And this season has done a lot of sucking so maybe I won't mind missing the last day.
