Super-G Racer

Super-G Racer (6/10)

  1. Indy Pass is announcing new areas for Pennsylvania, New York, and Canada on Tuesday. Anyone else buy the Indy Pass? Anyone want to speculate on what the PA and NY areas are? I would want it to be Elk but think that it is more likely to be Montage. They need a reason for people to drive past the Poconos. I wouldn't expect it to be Blue/Camelback. They have enough crowds already. Ski Big Bear would be a possibility. For NY I would I want it to be Plattekill. Not sure what other areas it could be.
  2. I made a water barrel similar to Toast's several years ago and it hasn't run dry since the first rain every year. Toast, what is the hose at the top of your barrel for? Overflow?
  3. That's not semantics. There's a huge difference between "created in a lab" and "accidentally released from a lab".
  4. There's a difference in being created in a lab and leaking or escaping from a lab. Most scientist still think it wasn't created in a lab.
  5. That was a common thing in the British Isles back in the day when women weren't allowed in pubs. There were no stools and men didn't want to lose their place at the bar. Just peed in the trough. There are still a lot around over there. Not in use anymore of course.
  6. KSL is a property management company. They sometimes buy resorts and lease them back to the previous owners to operate. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. It's a way for owners to get money out and still control the business.
  7. I don't see BB closing. Lots of condos and houses around Lake Harmony. I don't get the tubing not being open. Tubing does really well when the masses think about skiing and then see the cost of lift tickets, rentals, and lessons. I can just hear a lot of dads going, "Hey kids, Lets go tubing instead!" when they see the cost of skiing at a Vail resort.
  8. Congrats! That's a big accomplishment. Did you have to take your orals over Zoom?
  9. The problem with Amtrak is that they have to run on the same lines as freight trains. If they had dedicated high speed rails like in Europe trains would make more sense and be more popular.
  10. $30.00 to skin up for one run? Didn't see anything about the money going to charity.
  11. Berkshire East is a really fun, well run mountain. The owners bought Catamount about two years ago and are making improvements there.
  12. No TP no tip for maid. You can't just call the front desk at your hotel house?
  13. There's difference between being educated and being intelligent. I've met some educated idiots in my day.
  14. Exactly. It wasn't like the chair fell off because they didn't load properly. What was an extra lift attendant going to do? Ride the rope and hold the chair on the line?
  15. I'm not a lawyer but I read and deal with a lot of contracts at work regarding liability. I wouldn't think the responsibility code applies to lifts. Skiers have a responsibility to ski in control and avoid obvious and common obstacles. The ski areas have a responsibility to provide safe lifts. Skiers have a reasonable expectation that the lifts are safe. That said; all machines can have unexpected break downs regardless of the how carefully they are maintained. Parts are inspected but some flaws are not seeable to the naked eye like hair line cracks or internal flaws in a casting. In today's litigious enviorment no doubt someone will pay. But until the experts including the lift manufacturer determine the cause I would not automatically blame Camelback. And unfounded rumors like someone dying should not be repeated and should be deleted. And I'm no Camelback fanboy.
