I'd buy Peak if I were Vail. $93 million market cap for all those Midwest feeder hills and some cherries on top in the northeast sounds way more appealing.
PS - I think my last post just killed Salsgang. Can someone go by his house and check on him for me?
You could be onto somethjg. The biggest complaint about SR is their obsession with grooming. I hate it but it's still my home mountain, I get around it lol. If some western resort could leave SB in a more natural state and advertise it as the natural snow playground of the east type place, hmmmmm could work. Only been there once but it was amazing in Casablanca after 18" of fresh and I was astounded by the amount of snow the mountain had. Yeah, nice to dream.... I really hope they can do something - hate to see it close.Agree with catsup948 on deeper pockets handling things...they may be able to see more of the forest from the trees...than the present, including SL as well...y/n? The idea that all New England ski resorts have to be groomed out bowling alleys is so ludicrous. Skiers can ski any resort if there's one main lift to the top of each peak...
Knowing Joshua's posts over the years and the way he wrote this one....IMHO, the answer to your question is a resounding yes.
A tiny bit off-topic, but I was doing some cleaning yesterday and found some old ski magazines and started skimming through a couple. One from 2006 had an article about 10 great ski instructors in the US. One that caught my eye was a guy named "Joshua Segal" who at the time taught at Ragged, NH. I said to myself, "I know that name from a ski forum online". Same Joshua Segal as the one that posts here?
