    My favorite MacMansion on a ski hill story was heard on a lift at Big Sky. This young man had a friend who did grunt work for a property management company in Vail. One day he had to get into a home, and had to call the owner. He is answered by a man on the other end, explains himself, and the guy doesn't even cover the phone as he shouts, "honey, do we have a house in Vail?"

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    A buddy rented an entire ski area for a day once. We had a keg at the bottom of the lower chair. I think there were 20 of us skiing. It was rad.

    I know that Turner Mountain near Libby, MT has this as an option. I think it was reasonable too at like $10k per day.

    Word on the street is the Cimarron guys are some high rollin' attorneys. They sold the Battle Mountain superfund site (Gilman, behind Vail's back bowl's - beautiful area, but the cyanide fracking leaves a bad legacy) for $50M and put it into Cimarron.

    Vail's lines have been stressing me out lately. I'll probably be joining Cimarron soon, seems nice.

    I hadn't heard of this until recently, but there are plans for a private resort here in Utah too. The locals may stop it from getting off the ground, though.

    We almost had a private mountain at June Mt one storm day. 395 was close and it was puking all day. Only 75 cars in the parking lot (I counted), a large percent being employees. There were about 20 of uslapping J2. Basically just farmed turns by slowly moved outward from either side of the lift.

    Maybe I am missing something, but for the buy in at $62K/year I would just buy a snowcat and hike a driver. Hell, for that price I could probably hike a heli for ski days. That way I don't even have to share it with 12 other punters

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    I've seen the artist renderings for Wasatch Peaks. Was damn tempted to take pics with my phone, but you know that would be uncool and all.

    Funny. Perhaps they were part of the raucous gang my daughter and I saw at the Blue Buddha sushi last night...they had the party room rented and the drinks were flowing hard and they were getting wasted. We were speculating they were YC peeps, although we had no basis for that other than the $$$ they were obviously dropping. Oh and my daughter was taking note of all the designer purses, etc.

    Although truth be told, I think a lot of the rich YC folks slum it at Chopper's. That's where the real drunks hang with like minded drinkers IMO. What do I know, I'm not a local.

    I remember when rape-y Greg Lemond’s kid posted here about 10 or more years ago, talking about how the YC security teams were there with orders to “shoot to kill”... He didn’t stick around here too long.

    Completely unrelated but this reminds me of when I was at the brewery last winter sitting next to a crew of six doctors staying at the YC (their member friend was in the hospital with a tib/fib fracture). They filled a bunch of growlers, drank their limit, had a $186 bill, and they left a $10 tip.

    Well you don't get rich by just throwing money around willy-nilly.

    Just admit that you know your purses like you know skiing! Dont have to drag your daughter into this...
