snowklinger Its not like SAR and every other vehicle with a siren isn't racing up squaw to rescue some halfwit texan in flip flops who've cliffed themselves out on the Sawtooth every day anyway

linvillegorge Who the fuck is this guy? First that "Dual Snowboards" bullshit, now this?

Echo was making money despite the access issues and an all park setup with a shitty park. The investors admitted they didn't need to sell it, they were just curious to see what they could get. What is the bullshit about the fire departments? It doesn't matter what they think. Going private won't change anything for them. That bitch catches on fire or somebody gets fucked up, they'll still be driving their happy asses up there.

BurtonAvenger The only sport more expensive than ski racing is Nascar. That's a true fact but they sealed the deal and I get to write an article mocking them now.

killclimbz That is how I read it. They are going private. There is big bucks in the ski racing circuit for sure. I just don't think Echo is going to attract enough of that market. Too many other places with better facilities in winter.

linvillegorge Echo Mountain ski area bought to be converted into training facility - The Denver Post

Wow. Sounds worse than I thought. Sounds like it's going to be pretty much completely private. Seems like this rich lady basically just wants a private training facility for her spoiled brats and their friends.

I give this place three years tops before it's another lost resort.

LOL!

If that's the case, it has ZERO chance to succeed. That's a great way to start out - completely alienate your current customer base and start from scratch.

snowklinger I saw one of their old guys in the grocery store today and he said with a grin, "worst case scenario: things can only get better." Lolz.

linvillegorge Of course, anyone within that organization who had two brain cells to rub together knew their gig was up as soon as the joint hit the auction block.
