I agree. I had heard that several years ago now, long before the F35's were on their way. I know there was a lot of disagreement on dropping the nickname. If it has stayed, glad it did.Their official website has has that video that was posted on here earlier that still has the Green mountain boys name in the title of the video. It is recent so whatever you heard is not been taken seriously. Also if you do a search on it, nothing comes up as news. You would think it would show up. I don't care what people think, I will always call them the Green Mountain Boys.
Frustrating for sure. And I'm happy to be part of any letter writing campaign directed at keeping Egan there. But I'm not writing SB off in any way. Will it be different without John and Win? I'm sure it will. Will it be better or worse (or the same)? That remains to be seen. Going to a corporate owner will change things. Just not sure which direction it will be. So, in the meantime, I'm going to enjoy SB the same way I've done in the past. I'm going to cherish the vibe, the terrain, the people, and the feeling I have when I'm there.
Sorry to see Egan's position eliminated. That being said, Not knowing anything about what his prior deal involved, I'll hold off from criticizing. I mean, having Egan around as the minister of fun, was great, but not priceless.
I said I would not be posting any more on this forum now that I am retired, but I do have to break that this once. I am no longer involved in management now that I have retired but available to give advice it asked.
There are always two sides of a story and I am not sure all the facts are known. John was a very respected colleague and is a good friend. He was very good for Sugarbush and Sugarbush was very good to John. However, COVID is presenting very difficult and complex issues for Sugarbush and all other ski areas. As much we may dislike it the status quo will not be in place this winter. Everyone is going to have to adapt and not all may want to. That’s it, back to “retirement” and preparing to get on the slopes soon. I have my new downhill boots and new and AT Gear.
Certainly can understand the squeeze as a small business owner. Ski area cash flow is, like many other businesses, going to be devastated by lack of F&B sales, and probably limited traffic.
They are obligated to protect and enhance shareholder value. Many of us are doing the same, cutting out all non-essential expenses to stay above water until we get back to some standard of normal.
