    Nothing seemed political there just plain facts. Why go back to work until you have to if you will be making less? Nothing left or right about that just smart personal economics.

    Living on the dole, as some would call it, can get political fast. Pretty obvious, really.

    Back on topic.

    Alterra was in the initial bid process for Jay. I wonder if they pulled out.

    My guess is Saddleback needs to move forward on their lift install seeing as they cut and dropped all the Rangely double towers!

    I was told they passed. I have no clue what this all means for Jay Peak's sale, but I would assume that the number of potential buyers has gone down very significantly.

    Unfortunately I agree

    They were going to have to do that no matter what if they wanted to open for 20-21. Rangley double after sitting for 5 years without maintenance was never going to spin again. I would say that install and Timberline Mountain WV installs (a six pack anda FGQ) are likely goes since both areas are trying to re-open. Any other lift replacements/new installs are questionable if for no other reason than concern construction may not progress smoothly this year. Snowmass says they are continuing witht the Big Burn Chair replacement, they could manage without that lift if they had to, that terrain is accessible by other lifts and it is an upper mountain lift so not as critical. Time will tell if they follow through, but for the Crown's, doubt $$ is a major factor.

    There were pics online of them starting to prepare to remove Big Burn.

    Saw those, too. To machski's point, that terrain can be accessed in the event that Big Burn can't get completed this summer, which de-risks the move from an operational perspective. I'd imagine if things are so bad the lift can't get finished, skier volume/expectations will be way down anyway.
