Wildcat Mountain Stiffing Passholders

Another example of greedy resorts caring only about their bottom line.

WOW I know how I would feel, that sucks!!!
These people are almost like Partners/Investors that was an investment of 11 million made by those individuals and know they are out with nothing.

NOT RIGHT

If you bought a building and there were two tenants in it claiming they had paid lifetime rent, would you let them stay?

I don't know where you are getting 11 million.... That article says the guy paid 8k in the 70s for lifetime passes for his whole family. 30 + years of riding for nothing. I'd tell him to go fuck himself.

If this guy invested $8,000 and the lift tickets are $63, then he should reasonably hold the pass for 127 years...

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?

It's not the new owners problem their issue is with the old owner for not providing a provision to protect them.

I thought the article said 1400 members at $800 each = 11,200,000

"Simone said that out of the 1,400 lifetime passes issued over the years,"
I am not sure all passes were $800 or just that for his WHOLE family, article didn't say

Welcome to New York, don't they have lifeftime rent control or something like that. Regardless of the owner, but once you move or die the rent can change.

Not positive but thought that was what my east coast relatives told me.

I'd like to know if they get away with it. OP, can you keep us updated on how the story unfolds? I'm sure I'll forget reading about this in exactly 5 minutes (I'm in the mountains so it's all systems snow) but I'm curious to know how this issue is resolved.
