    Lee can you confirm that conditions were double overhead blower this morning off Peak? How many first timers tib fibs did patrol have to slog off the mountain after this first snow?
    I'm sure Matt Gunn has a big Meetup going to Metal Dome and all the usual tib-fib pow gongshow is going hard at it getting first tracks to the Medical Centre

    LeaLau/Norton/Gram,

    Do any of you use a WeWork/Regus set up or do you work from home? I have access to a hot desk in Van and I'm weighting the added cost of a second bedroom to serve as an office, vs the cost of a Regus locked office. Any experience?

    Kindest

    I'm a downtown Vancouver office drone so can't help there. One of my friend's co uses WeWork and has had good things to say about the Bentall location. I know Lee was bigly bullish on the failed WeWork IPO so he will be biased .

    Closer to the slopes, the better. Then figure out where your device works.

    Looking for parking for my truck/sled for this winter, tried the places I have used before and everything is full up this year. Also phoned the various strata management companies in case any place had open spots, no luck with that. Anyone have a lead for me?

    Whistler's Turkey sale turns out to be just a big promo for all the stores,
    with sale prices identical to what was being shucked in May end of season.

    And hats off to Ark Tear X.
    That team manages to sell $400 jackets (competitor valuation) for $800 in the regular season,
    and then find sucklers to pay
    $400 at the Turkey sale
    for what amounts to taped and seam sealed
    petro chemicals
    with almost non-styling.

    My apologies to any fashionistas
    that think that spending lots of money on
    breeeatheeable shells
    will make them better breathers
    , skiers,
    or teach them avalanche skills.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
    We all got lots to be thankful for.

    Once Upon A Time
    The Turkey Sale
    Was people buying pre-loved/exprienced/second-hand stuff
    at great prices
    and a COMMUNITY EVENT.
    Once Upon a Time.

    There are other temp work-sharing spaces that don't require commitments like Regus, no?
    At least at home, you get to write off a portion of your space (mortgage/interest/utilities/internet/etc).
    I think that is at least one advantage over a paid space.
    But then, you won't meet other cute entrepreneurs and lunch with good company.

    You can only claim business-use-of-home expenses if your home is your principal place of business, or you use a workspace in your home solely to earn your business income and use it regularly to meet with clients, customers, or patients. That means that you cannot claim business-use-of-home expenses if you are also conducting business elsewhere or because you sometimes work on business matters at home.

    I appreciate such wisdom from someone who spent so much time and money insisting carbon fiber was a better brake rotor material for bikes. Before nuking the thread and going back. Hope much did those cost?

    Maybe, but he’s still right. (About the turkey sale that is)

    Unfortunately there is no way to buy shares in Amer Sports since they have been delisted.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/press-rele...e-been-deliste

    They are certainly profitable,
    and with 9,000 staff worldwide, with years to come and advances enabling retrenchment,
    this is going to lay the golden egg
    every day.

    There is always ANTA if you can stomach that the price has already shot up appreciably.

    Not sure about ANTA:

    https://www.muddywatersresearch.com/...ch/anta/part1/

    Also heard they were long on MTB carbon rotors. Risky position.

    Arc’teryx is great though.

    Wow. That report goes deep. I thought Chip Wilson had better taste than that.
    But ANTA begs to differ.
    https://www.theguardian.pe.ca/busine...orrect-331003/


    Ultimately, the bike industry will support whatever technology can be branded as 'unobtainium', made available just within reach of the Santa Cruz crowd, and be said to increase reliance on expert techs and shop crews. If MTB Carbon Rotors can deliver an advantage, that has nice profit margins, and require pros to set them up, then shops will run with them in their selection.

    I made that up 100%, but it probably works like that. Hence e-bikes.


    Anyways, am I correct that ANTA owns 100% of AMER Sports?
    That means that ANTA owns Arcteryx.
    https://www.amersports.com/2019/08/a...f-year-report/
    and also http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/20190...5c34ee732.html

    I never knew that. I thought ANTA and AMER were wholly separate.

    So what is the best way to invest in the cycle of cash separation that gullible Ark Tear X consumers are part of?

    edit:

    A consortium led by China's leading manufacturer of sportswear Anta Sports is about to complete the purchase of Finnish sporting goods company Amer Sports ...
    Anta Sports published an offer in Helsinki to purchase all the shares of the Finnish Amer Sports on in December, 2018.
    ... Amer owns world famous sports brands such as Wilson, Arc'teryx, Atomic and Salomon. The successful acquisition will enable Anta, which has an brand portfolio including ANTA, FILA, DESCENTE, SPRANDI, KINGKOW and KOLON SPORT, a greater global exposure and influence.
    Besides Anta Sports Products Limited, the consortium also consists of investment fund FountainVest Partners, Canadian Anamered Investments and Chinese Tencent. Anta has 58 percent ownership in the consortium.
    So ANTA owns 58% of AMER and the rest to some others.

    Sad. Vibes. We saw the chopper pulling in that day and wondered why. Guess that was it.
