Vail is sitting on about $1 billion in cash. But that is for operations. You of all people know that a few months ago they were having a bond sale to raise capital for operations. Vail and Alterra were considering Jay as a purchase. Then the pandemic happened. Apparently, the receiver was not at all happy with the low bids he was getting for Jay.Maybe Jay Peak is hoping to be acquired by Vail, and they figure acting as douchey as possible will improve their odds.

I always thought the same until I saw a guy this year tell a patroller “I didn’t do anything wrong and I am not giving you my pass” and ski away. Patroller just stood there. I didn’t see what they were arguing over but the patroller let him ski away un-impeded??? Maybe he called down to other patrollers but he certainly didn’t detain him there.Except it doesn't work like that.
Ehhh, I don't know about that. The 2 times I was harrassed by ski patrol I did absolutly nothing wrong.That's not the part I meant. If you detain someone you risk a kidnapping lawsuit, etc. No one is going to do that. You let them go and give the police the information and file a tresspass and theft of service charge. We had to do it several timew.
The pass part is what I was referring to. If you read the fine print you're required to turn it over when asked by mountain staff. I guess you could just ski away, but then you could be subject to my first paragraph.
I'd say if someone has been asked twice to turn their pass over in a lifetime regardless they're doing something wrong.
My kid "Dad, I don't think we are supposed to cross that rope. They must have put it there for a reason"Meanwhile, Plattekill ski patrol dares people to ski closed runs
We ask to see their pass. To get the name, & # so it can be deactivated.I assume as part of customer service training they tell patrollers not to “get physical”. I watched the patroller turn and calmly walk back to the shack. I was waiting for a little something to happen but it didn’t.
