    The sale includes some land held by the Ks just to the south of Greenwater.

    Hopefully they''l build some decent employee accommodations down there and napalm the old units at the mountain freeing up some space for development..... but actually just avoiding the gulag like living conditions for staff might help with the whole customer service issue.

    It's the descendant of KSL private equity and Henry Crown private investment group... so the who is probably not available easily if at all.

    People know that xtal is good but they would never come here over park city, whistler or vail. No risk of destination resort but Iím sure alterra would love to get SEATTLE folks and all their money to other spots . So hereís my wish list ;
    1. Easier access to beer without lines after skiing
    2. East peak double for slack country access would be great
    3. Accommodation is in desperate need of updating
    4. Chain check at 410
    5. Outdoor bar and snack shack at Campbell lodge
    6. Remodeled base lodge
    7. Eliminate permit parking and add valet parking
    8. Reroute gondola to top of nway
    9. Change snack shack back to satay hut
    10. Add club at base for ski storage , showers , etc...

    Dear god please do not implement chain checks. Or, at least do not use CalTrans as the model.

    .. Hence an offer he couldn't refuse.

    1. Easier access to beer without lines after skiing I hardly eever drink in the resort bars (maybe the patio occasionally) The Elk beer line at full crush is perfectly tolerable - what they need to do is stop showing anything other than ski movies on the TV... I hate the atmosphere that football games create in there compared to ski porn
    2. East peak double for slack country access would be great Yep... although we might come to miss the current peace and quiet.
    3. Accommodation is in desperate need of updating Yep
    4. Chain check at 410 to be effective/safe/fair this needs to be WSP or PC Sheriff not asking less than minimum wage parking lot attendants to argue with irate motorists
    5. Outdoor bar and snack shack at Campbell lodge move the patio shed up there
    6. Remodeled base lodge Yep - better police table camping, left bags, brown bagging
    7. Eliminate permit parking and add valet parking you can take my parking permit from my cold dead hands! How on earth would Valet parking work the flow of incoming vehicles would be impossible to match[
    8. Reroute gondola to top of nway not sure what benefit that would bring.. the crush it would create on the Elk side of Green Valley would be horrible.
    9. Change snack shack back to satay hut see above - would structure stand up in weather conditions at Campbell Basin lodge
    10. Add club at base for ski storage , showers , etc...Club?... Showers? ewwwww.

    There doesnít need to be a chain check, just a Prius check.

    We donít need a gondola on top of Northway, just make it a quad.

    Bike park would be cool if it adds to the bottom line and doesn't slow winter upgrades.

    All prius should be quarantined in Enumclaw until 8am, made to park in F lot, and then held until 6pm every day. Or exploded via RPG if not cost prohibitive.
