Well I guess that kills whatever small sentimental value I still had towards a few of the vail properties.

Just went on the website, looking for some events in the coming weeks now that the pandemic(?) is over. Jeep thing this weekend and then??????? Seems weird, there's nothing posted and I went all the way to 12/31/22. I thought they were going to start doing things again?

Mountain Jam is nowhere this year...but at Bethel Woods in 2023 from what I see on their website. Taste of Country that was previously at Hunter is simply listed as cancelled for the Hunter location on the tour this year. Not sure if that's the same Country Fest you're referring to or not...

5/9-12/31 is listed as the summer of a lifetime.
Not sure who's lifetime....

There is activity at the mountain. clouds of dust on the parkway, and there is a large long ditch being dug in the parking lot below the snow tubing. Supposedly Octoberfest the first weekend in October

went up earlier - they have all the uphill charis removed from D lift, only the one's facing down are on. Some sort of maintenance.

All the groomers have been moved to the snow tubing area from over by B lift for some reason.

Grass has been moved, early for that. A lot of cars in the lot, not sure why, zipline is open but did not see anyone around.

The website has a photo from a previous Octoberfest on it, however there are zero events listed for the rest of 2022.

so they will have to drive thru the parking lot to get repaired? Like the lot is not in bad enough shape now? The hotel and condo owners will love that noise and dust

They are also going to put a new(?) Lift from where B is now up to and past a little bit to the left of F lift.............also heard F will be a HS Quad. What Hunter does NOT need without trail expansion is more uphill capacity.

all rumer at this point. They have to figure out how to regrade so you can access Gun Hill from the lift without making it to dangerous.... They also want to have D go higher and faster. and of course all that has to go thru the state & town, and the bean counters. won't happen anytime soon.

also a lodge over on the north,. These are all nothing new, dreams from the Slutzky's.......

they tore up the snow making lines by madison last month. hopefully they will be finished by opening day

none of this is final. In review stage...decisions on allocation to be made by July. Only 10 million to spend from NY. Committee / consultants looking for input from locals... doubt the dispensary will get a nickle, as well as the religious organizations requesting millions

These people have the ability to get what they want (they vote in blocks), will slowly take over town boards. I know we used to live in Rockland NY.
