I really don't care. I have never been and probably won't ever go. Although maybe vail will suck them up in a short sale now and I can use my pass there next year.... I got epic passes so we can take some trips to CO next season and Australia in 2017.
What really sucks about all of this is that Newport wont get the development plans that were promised. Poorest area in Vermont really could have used it. They already demolished a bunch of buildings downtown.
