    Mansfield has a crap load of towers on the nose and if I recall correctly a couple more on the middle of the ridge.

    In fact all these rules are un-enforceable but I'm sure one or two employees will take it to heart.

    Kind of like "tobacco-free zones" that include chew tobacco and dip.

    At least we know gummies, cookies, lollipops and straight up eating distillate are acceptable.

    I say if someone can huff a cigarette and still ski and not decide to quite either skiing or smoking, more power to them.

    You are way off assuming 75% of employees smoke cigarettes. My guess is the number is closer to 10% as as only about 15% of the population in VT smoke cigs.

    We're talking Vermont so I assume everyone has moved on to dabbing extracts of Nicotiana rustica by now.

    the employees have a designated smoking area hidden in the corner of the parking lot by the entrance to the claybrook road.

    Hence why it is, in fact, bogus.

    And it's not just Vermont, the bird exists in the high country of New York, New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick, Quebec, etc....

    Not to mention the bird isn't classified as endangered or even as threatened, but merely vulnerable. And not that it's classification should matter in the least bit from a ski resort perspective anyway, given the presence of skiers wont bother a bird that winters in Cuba, Haiti, and Jamaica. Now you've got me all wound up, happy?

    That would be one helluva crowded place if 75% of the employees smoked.

    Yes, its range is the entire northern east coast, but this is the Sugarbush thread, not the Entire East Coast Thread. And really who cares if its reference could mean one less mountaintop eyesore.
