    Yeah it's going to be interesting to see if try to make a WROD so they can keep it open when conditions wouldn't otherwise allow. I haven't skied at Disco very much but in the times I have, I never saw that chair running. It's kind of a moot point for a lot of families though, since it will require two lifts up and a long ski down to get to the lodge.

    If conditions are good, it looks like there might be some fun terrain in there.

    Cyclocross racing going on all day at Big sky brewing tomorrow. Donations for the free beer go to mtb missoula. There's a "try cx" beginner race, and a mtb only race, both only cost $20, go like 25 min, and don't require a usac license if anyone wants to try it out. Or just come and hang out and drink beer. Fastest people race last, women at 6:45, men at 8pm. There's usually a pretty good crowd up on the hill for those.

    Hit up the pass party today. Bit of a line, but it snaked past the bar so you could grab a pint or two while waiting. Got an extra $58 to put towards the bar tab now.

    Load testing of the new lift apparently is happening on the 16th. After that, it will be fully operational.

    No word yet on the hours of the lift.

    Indian summer had been pretty damn nice so far.

    It's crazy how we're calling slightly above average weather an "indian summer" now

    Eh, I don't think there needs to be a lot of "above average temps" to use that word. Plus it's a nice way to describe that high pressure rebound after the early season cold snaps.

I'm sure the $50k (20%) that they don't pay in tax goes right into the hill....or goes to pay their employee's better, or to provide better equipment to their staff, or, or, or. Right.
    Since when are business taxed on gross revenue?

    You're right. You have to subtract operating costs off gross revenue to get taxable income. That new juicer they got some years ago is a fucking money sink in maintenance costs....not to mention all of the money they're putting into Griz.

    So funny that they are fullbore with a marketing campaign about a new lift that hasn't even passed a load test. Load testing is a big deal and surely not a done deal.
