I can sort of understand renting out a whole theatre or stadium, a venue that is not in constant use but only for specific events. This is a publicly accessible mountain that is open for 13 hours each day and is close to peak season. Renting it out to a single paying party would result in so much lost revenue due to the rest of the people getting pissed off and black listing them, I doubt this beaver could afford to pay that.

Funny thing is, I was actually there on the slopes that day, it happens to be my birthday and it would have been a very big deal for me if they pulled something like this up.

As well as the mountains

I wonder if people ever yell derogatory shit bieber while in public like out on the hill? Would you? Would I? Probably if I knew he tried to buy out the hill while I was there.
LOL what are you talking about? I was born and raised in Hawaii too and private beaches have always been illegal and still are. The only exception is ONE beach that was man made by the Ko'Olina resort, but other than that, "no trespassing" signs aren't placed on beaches; maybe private beach access paths (which are legal), but not beaches.

Anyways, I don't think this is an entitlement thing. A lot of businesses rent out their grounds to private organizations or individuals quite regularly; hell, Disneyland does it on occasion.
