If you get the early bird discount you can get the Whistler season pass for a bargain price is $1500-$1700.

Two things....

1) that epic pass is cost-effective even if you're only taking a weeks vacation to a resort.

B) I wonder how many watchlists BigAl is on...

It maybe happening... "At the Mammoth Lakes Town Council meeting this evening, MMSA CEO Rusty Gregory just announced that in 2-3 weeks someone else will be running Mammoth Mountain and it won't be him. More on this as the story develops." Per The Sheet news feed on FB last night.

Geeze, if VR gets Mammoth, one really has to wonder how solvent they are. I would think at that point VR would be highly leveraged.

From my understanding they're not that leveraged due to owning and having almost everything paid off outright. Plus if it's an agreement to just run the resort but not own it that adds to the dynamic. I think VR definitely learned from the mistakes of mega resort conglomerates like Interwest.

I saw that on Mammoth's facebook feed as well.
