    When i was still at Frost, i rode the lift with a guy who was way smarter than i. We had a conversation about them going public. He felt that paying a dividend on stocks was cheaper than any loan would cost. Easy way to get money to buy stuff, and pay out less than the interest on a loan. kinda makes sense.

    A friend of mine said this as well. Why, or how he knew that was a mystery me, being as he isnt a Blue groupie, big skier, etc. It was the same as if Doug was to turn to you and give you a real good home maintenance tip.

    Green is latest proposed route. I saw a video a year or so back that flew the route (can't find it now) that had it coming right up MS. Note the connection for BM. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I had heard the hotel/condos were dependent upon the pipeline going through. http://www.wfmz.com/news/poconos-coal/penneast-pipeline-would-fuel-blue-mountain-expansion/511571025

    Seriously, WTF is with this Weather?

    I have yes. theres one other active window guy in it yea. he only does windows though. Ive started to re-brand as a building envelope/facade maintenance company since we do more than just windows and pressure washing. Hes helped a lot last month with overflow work. Aug wouldve been dead without those referalls.

    Some of us still ski on skis from 2009 no big deal.

    Have you met Tony Ianelli? We were members of the chamber for a few years but I was never interested in attending any of the events. Maybe there are other window washing companies in the area you can help out during slow times.

    They would be running a spur line off the pipeline so Blue could build a power plant to feed the hot springs spa and the hotel/other improvements. That’s what the last article I read said at least.

    Won't be getting a pass, but hoping to get a few days in! I'm down to some old-ass Line fat skis only from 2009, but I'll still come rip a little.

    My bike can fit 29 and 25.5+ tires and switch the HT angle by 1 degree. I LOVE 29ers for trail riding. I thought the chip was like giving me a hundred dollar bottle of wine: I'm not good enough to notice the difference. But it's a SICK feature. I live on a mountain next to a steep, technical trail network and I work at a flowy DH bike park, so I've been using the chip like crazy this summer. The slack mode is SWEET for the park but a pig to pedal on the trails and vice-versa. I'm definitely sold on geo-adjustment! EDIT: The mechanic at my shop and I measured the bb height in both modes and weirdly it's exactly the same. I don't see how that's possible, but the ruler says it is. With the 29ers on, though, the bike feels way taller.

    Naa, Vail has a vested interest in buying up feeder resorts near population centers and using them to leverage customers to their larger resorts. They are already doing this with wilmot and afton alps in WI and MN. By the way, peak is in fact a publically traded company, they trade under the ticker symbol SKIS.

    They have no interest in building a hotel at the base...they want it next to the main lodge so guests can have easy access to the Slopeside grill and bar and have mountaintop views. Nothing has been done to the waterpark since about 5 years ago when they cleared out the land and made a few small parking areas. Last I heard the Appalachian trail club and the Sierra club were fighting the new hotel/condos as it’s fairly close to the Appalachian trail. I’m still waiting for pricing which was supposed to be released December of 2015. New page: Boner City

    Has there been any movement this year on the hotel or water park? Are these dead in the water, or still moving through regulatory agencies? The water park up top makes perfect sense due to the view. Why not scale back the hotel at the top and move it back a little from the AT and then build a larger hotel at the base where it’s flat and has less issues?

    The Jeffsy is awesome! Go for it, you won't be disappointed. I considered it, but I need the Capra with the frequent bike park beating I'll be doing. You can get it with a decent build kit and carbon frame for just over $3k, insane value for a 150mm trail bike. Helllll yeah! 29ers are making serious waves now in the gravity world. Lots of them are popping up in the World Cup now and quite a few wins are happening in the EWS this year. 2019 is going to be littered with 29ers. Most companies are even offering their DH bikes with 29er options too, and not just a frankenstein'd 27.5 frame with bigger wheels. Actual race tested stuff. Interested to see how the flip chip will be. Most of them seem gimmicky, I don't really think the .5 degree on the the headtube and seattube will exactly turn it to a XC bike, but the increased BB height is definitely intriguing. From what I've read, the 29 Capra vs. the 27.5 is a wayyyy better with climbing and pedalling efficiency though for obvious reasons. I just need to sit, spin, and get up the hill anyway so I can hurt myself on the way down. I'll save the lycra and cadence meter for my road bike. Love how this thread is turning to a bike discussion haha BTW - im waiting for fedex as we speak...I'll post pics in the bike thread!
