If I lived in Lackawanna county I'd go all in on this deal...has Sno mountain or montage ever not opened? I remember KCSki was saying about how some workers paychecks were bouncing and what not had me shaking my Herman.
Get your story straight. I never said they had an issue with checks bouncing other than the fact that there was an issue with bank transfers and a monumental screw up on said banks side, not the mountain's. I never had a bad check in all my years there.
Love the comments here about the Doom and Gloom Forecast once again for this place. Although I am not a part of it anymore I do keep up on what is going on up there. You all do know between Disco and the Peach Festival pretty much covers the operating expenses of the mountain for the entire year?. All through the years I was there some jackass always stated it is closing, will close, last year, rain, no snow...slow lifts...bad management....and...it's in better financial shape than it ever was currently. Live Nation signed a 5 year contract with them for continuation of the Peach Festival, and Disco is re-signing after this show.
It still needs help as the infrastructure needs upgrading in areas, but that is coming... but..it's not going anywhere anytime soon.
With that said...I was at Blue a few weeks ago to shoot for the AMA Hare Scramble that was held there...first time there...nice place, Montage can take some lessons from them. Also was at Tussey Mountain..small resort but all kinds of good things down there for Summer activities and a well kept place.Go to the full post
