    Peak news

    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.

    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?

    Peak Resorts Consolidation

    I wouldn’t be surprised if she keeps running it as a retirement plan and just lets the GM do everything. I also wouldn’t be surprised if the Camelback owners bought it, sold the resort land, leased back the operations, and then developed it like Camelback. They are making a mountain of dough out of a molehill.

    If Vail bought Peaks, they wouldn’t keep these. They would keep the real resorts like Attitash, Wildcat, Mount Snow, and Hunter. They would probably spin the PA mountains off into a different company and sell it.

    We don’t know how they financed it. The previous company is privately held, so they may have offered to hold the debt on it with a modest down payment. If Peaks defaults they get the deposit plus the resorts back.

    Redundant thread after mine maybe? Just a guess. Their balance sheet is in shambles. They have to be buying almost solely with debt...

    Peak Resorts Consolidation

    I feel like there had to be better mountains they could have bought for $76 million, but I guess you can only buy what’s on the market...

    https://www.peakresorts.com/news-updates/snowtime/ For what it is worth. They picked up more smaller mountains in PA to combine with JFBB and Hunter in NY. Guess it makes it easier for people who frequent those mountains to head to Mount Snow for a real vacation.

    18/19 Season Update

    That’s why I think Elk could give JFBB a run for its money when it comes to cold. It’s already a solid 5 degrees colder than Blue (if not colder) due to latitude, so add in the elevation change, and it’s significantly colder.

    Fortunately/Unfortunately, nothing has changed. Still the same lifts, lodge, and trails. Still the same great snow.

    You got it one year before the Stairway to Heaven, right? It was t2b? Did you go back for the Stairway in a following year?

    18/19 Season Update

    I hardly take my laptop with me anywhere, so I have to type it up on my phone half the time. It saves me time on uploading pictures, but it takes more time to write. Sometimes the task seems daunting, so I keep putting it off until a month later when I’m back around my computer.

    Will do. I keep forgetting Tapatalk has that feature. It’s been years since I’ve used it. Hopefully a notification pops up.

    I don’t disappear on purpose. Just get busy and stop checking in on the message boards. I still try to write TRs from time to time. Especially when they are different mountains, early season, or epic snow conditions.

    Whatever happened to that guy? Is he still around?
