Skiing proves resilient as investment ramps up, the outdoors boom, and the resort-and-pass shuffle resumes
Hunter shut down three days (four?) due to Covid staffing issues with the ski patrol.
As always, an enjoyable read, thank you. I for one, will be happy to chip in to support the journal and your rockstar lifestyle.
where the heck did you find that video at the end? amazing, horrific, hilarious, sad, American
Great list! Every single moment is very well thought out. The only thing I might add, which isn't so much a moment as it is a multi-year trend is it seems like we are seeing a small, but noticeable uptick in community based / non-profit / impact investing (for profit) / local ski operations. There already are probably at least a dozen that have been operating for decades across New England, but it seems like the last few years there has been more of them. Whaleback, Ascutney, Saddleback, Big Squaw, hopefully Hickory, and hopefully Farr's Hill. Maybe it is just more awareness due to Indy Pass, Storm Skiing Journal, backlash to the corporate consolidation, and Covid causing people to stay closer to home. But maybe there is something more going on here and I'm liking it.
Funny asterisk. Phenomenal content. Thank you.
