    I'm sure it makes money, since they haven't spent a dime on the place in a long time and they seem to have a minimal amount of staff.

    Count Aspen though as an operator moving forward with planned lift installs and capital spending:

    It will be interesting to see if they actually do go through with all of them though.

    No CEO will say a plan is cancelled, until a plan is cancelled.

    While this hurts all ski resorts, this is sheer murder for Vail. I don't think there's ANY emergency plan to deal with their entire portfolio being shutdown for a few months.

    Us in the Northeast got relatively lucky- most places had lass than 30 days less left in their season and can implement their "worst winter in 30 years" plan to get through this financially (I hope).

    I dont think any business in the country had a plan for dealing with an abrupt shutdown that lasted for months followed by a recession

    Many of Vail’s portfolio have resorts closing around mid April then transition for summer in June. A few would have stayed open in May. They will start to transition to summer. The only real factor will be how the resort industry ramps back up during the summer.

    What I was aiming at was their handful of Southern Hemisphere properties that are all major plays for Australia.

    The timing of all of this was pretty fortunate for the ski industry. Imagine if this thing landed in mid November keeping resorts closed through February. That would’ve really hurt.

    Disassembling one of the most important lifts at Snowmass is a strong sign they are all in.
