  1. The forecast in the Sierra's looks nuts! They are getting 10-20% of their annual precipitation this week! An impromptu trip is mighty tempting...
  2. ^, I got that. I was just assuming 100mm as a price paid to drive the discussion around the economics. I remember some numbers around 250-300mm as the amount the investors lost so a 30% recovery from this sale seems within the realm of possibility. My question is, do the resort economics today support such an investment? Is there a cash flow yield of say 20% annually on the 100? Anyone know what that looks like?
  3. https://www.wcax.com/content/news/Receiver-for-Jay-Peak-ready-to-begin-sale-process-504049131.html My question to the forum and for those in the know, is Jay a viable, profitable business at $100million cost? I'm not too familiar with ski resort economics.

  5. Looking to see if anyone is aware of any discounts for lessons at Cranmore.

    Wachusett Conditions and get togethers

    Was up there on Sat and can confirm 10p starting Fri. 12/21. Mountain, despite the weather, was in pretty great shape. Spring like conditions with soft snow edge to edge. Was with my 3yo on the beginner slope so didn't venture out to much, but did hit conifer and it was great. They've taken advantage of the snowmaking windows and have huge whales available to touch up the open trails should the weather continue to be uncooperative. I'll probably be out there next weekend as well before the holiday madness starts. Starting in 2019 I'll be out there one night a week (likely thursdays) until the mountain closes, and probably sunday afternoons as well.

    The wa skied great this morning! Arrived around 9 and left at noon, just as it was starting to get busy. Ski to lift all morning. Ralph's and conifer were the picks of the day. Buttery packed pow across the mountain. My son was ripping it up!

    Great afternoon today at the wa with the family. Good base And they were making a ton across the mountain. Going to head up with my son tomorrow morning likely. If the weather continues to cooperate they should be close to 100% in a week or so

    I wouldn't say it was that bad, a mediocre option Imho. Started off much better than it finished.
