  • > @Cannonball said: > Increasing the uphill capacity at Loon should not be a consideration. Loon's slopes are dangerously overcrowded as it is already. Lift lines are the only thing keeping the slopes even remotely bearable and safe …
  • Whattttttttttt are those!!! No but really what is this? From what I gathered the State of PA is paying to reopen a PALSAP(Jeremy can have that one) area that closed after 2013/14? And not just reopen, but investing heavily and installing new lifts? …
  • https://vtdigger.org/2018/05/25/maple-valley-ski-area-dummerston-sells-745k/ $745,000 is not too bad for a place that sat idle since before the iPhone or Windows XP for that matter!
  • Both lifts have been well taken care of and should be able to serve a lot longer due to their low-ish hours for their age. Also, they use the Pisten Bully 600 and then there's the Cattilac with the person carrier on the back that also sees light dut…
  • It's not too much honestly, not for the experience you were getting and they weren't running a charity unless you count Barnes and his cronies. It went up to $85 once the Barnstormer went in, aka when the experience became a complete 5 star level of…
  • What has me puzzled about the whole Saddleback situation is that doing nothing has to be just as bad an option for the Berrys as anything.  Why?  Because there has to be debt service on the company, although who knows how much debt there is?  I can'…
  • OK Joshua.  One more question.  Do you know if the Berrys are in a post-Majella mindset?  Or do they believe that Sebastian Monsour's latest move, setting up a dunk booth he will be manning in Portland ME to raise sufficient funding to close the dea…
  • OR do the members have to pay their dues still? I'm thinking that is a big no, but then again without that income there is no income at all.
  • Until proven otherwise we must asume tix cant be sold to general public. If they could, Mt. Snow would be more interested. As it stands there is no reason for Mt. Snow to buy it and you can be sure their legal dpt. will make sure that the rule is we…
  • The deed says that lift tickets can never be sold to the general public Words that I also lived by on this subject until it was suggested to me that that "rule" ASC put in the deed was only valid for ten years. If that is not true then you just ha…
  • I agree it does not ski as big as Bromely but cannot remember the mid mountain flat people are talking about maybe I had more speed going in to it than most. I have not skied the new haystack but yeah going to the true bottom was a chore and only so…
  • It would be fantastic if Peak did this after getting Mount Snow on the run they are on with West Lake, Carinthia, beating K early season and pushing late. However, as many are probably about to yell about, Peak seems to have exactly zero interest in…
  • I'm thinking more along the lines of what would attract someone to buy it. Jay has the whole Canadian crowd/waterpark/hockey arena thing going for it to create more revenue. Burke has the Kingdom Trails in the summer and it's quirky, off piste vibe …
  • Fascinating to read that things might have gotten to that level of disagreement amongst the Berry family. I wonder what is causing some to lean one way and some the other. At this point in the game are you not losing value every day? I mean a few ye…
  • Whoa Joshua coming in HOTTT like your cousin Steven much?(i kid, i kid) Chilllllll man, you must be involved in some capacity to be saying silly things like this. Don't lie like that, I've skied Haystack/Hermitage more than 20 days the last three ye…
  • What are the pros/cons of Haystack versus Burke/Jay?  Ahhhh Haystack might be kinda sorta maybe like Burke a little bit, kinda sorta not really. Haystack has almost nothing at all in common with Jay. Each mountain is in a different kind of sitauti…
  • Good! This is the only way Club members will get their playground back. Barnes had literally no idea what he was doing, his HR director was a train wreck for 3 years having no idea how to hire or fire people, so much so that she's named in the laws…
  • I would LOVE to see Mount Snow go back to this setup for late season, of course as is they basically just try to keep the four main runs on the front open as long as possible which is also nice. When I worked there a couple years ago I remember very…
  • Nothing happened really, but the current regime has allowed LMP to be surpassed by more than a couple mountains now and they seem to have other priorities (which is no big deal at all and it's probably wise to Target the younger family demo that sta…
  • Carinthia being the hands down #1 park east of the Mississippi and top 3 in nation this year and last goes a very very long way. You've got pros flying east to ride this park and get in a photoshoot or two. That's insane when you think back just a f…
  • They aren't altering a whole lot so the Act 250 stuff shouldn't be an issue.
  • That article makes me shake my head so much. How can so many sketchy strange characters from CT can try to steal a buck out of this valley?! The guy couldn't pay 5 grand in condo fees, BUT HAS $26 MILLION FOR THE CLUB?! This is simple, grow a pair t…
  • Looking at these photos, great pics btw, it really just makes me ask why and how can a place like this just not make it. I know it's rural, I know the crowds would have to drive past the loaf and Sunday River, but still. This just looks like epic po…
  • Can someone explain the economics behind keeping the red lift, too? I get having a backup, but I doubt it will ever be crowded enough (especially if the green chair comes on line) to really need it. Seems like a lot of maintenance cost for a lift th…
  • I'm kind of surprised, it would seem as though May 1st the site started going down and within a day or two it went offline for basically everyone. The main board was very active right up until the last time I logged in, even a little more than we ar…
  • We saw Jiminy take over Brodie, only to kill their competition :-( , but I don't see similar fate planned with the takeover of Blandford or Catamount. I think we're moving into a new era and away from the practice of buying competition and trimmin…
  • Can we call this whole thing dead in the water now? I mean it's been clear for six months. Really sad for the mountain and her fans.
  • I guess it was the amazing March we had here in Vermont, but I feel like VT had a pretty good year all in all. Early on things were good, then rough, then AMAZING. I'm pretty surprised by just how much they lost, this seems pretty large for them and…
  • No footrest=useless and frustrating to me with a board. Yeah I can do the back foot under the heel edge to hold it up but that blows. Just make a normal bar like was the case for the last 20 years. It's the real old chairs like Heavy Metal at Snow t…
  • As is it would only come in about 300 vert shy of the Kanc. I grew up riding WV and Loon most weekends, but it's been two years since I was last there so I can't remember just how easy it would be to extend 7 Brothers, but if memory serves correctly…
