    Does anyone have any input on how good Snowmass looks in a bad snow season?

    As a mountain, I'd lean towards Snowmass. It's massive with tons of intermediate terrain. And, while Deer Valley has...

    I'm not familiar with the industry at all, but do mountain workers have their housing, food, and transportation paid for? Raising the minimum wage seems like a non-starter because it'll uniformally...

    Good enough for me. Hope they still end up pro-rating the people who only got a few days this year. That would put them on par with Epic in that area.
