  1. 7 Places Where the Slopes Are Less Skied These under-the-radar resorts offer plenty of room to turn, and plenty of challenge amid a winter of social distancing. Encompassing three peaks and 300 acres, the family-run Bolton Valley resort features the highest base elevation of any Vermont ski area.Credit...Bolton Valley By Cindy Hirschfeld Nov. 25, 2020 + Devoted skiers and snowboarders recognize the plum benefits of below-the-radar ski resorts: fewer fellow powder seekers, shorter lift lines, relatively reasonably priced tickets and lodging, and, often, limited dis
  2. Don't let us in. We are a country comprised of close to 50% of idiots, which means if you ride up a chair with an American you have nearly a 50% chance of sitting next to an idiot. (I resemble that remark).
  3. I can live without 1 season if it means I can ski for the following 10 seasons. I just don't trust the super spreaders.
  4. I may be repeating myself but here goes: 1. The 2 most dangerous words in the English language are "I THINK". 2. The 3 most dangerous words in the English language are "IN MY OPINION". Because you think or have an opinion, it does not make it right. Facts make right.
  5. I sincerely hope that you are right. What I've been hearing is just the opposite up here. I'm still in Big Sky. Today I happened to speak with a person who is cleaning for VRBO and AIRBNB. He said he was slammed for the upcoming season and was raising his rates 10% this coming week. I've spoken with several others that do VRBO and AIRBNB and the story was the same, they're busy. I had the earliest inquiries for the upcoming season, and turned them down due to Covid. Decided to wait to see what happens with the protocols at the resort. Safety first. I'd hate to have anyone th
  6. Covid has certainly affected Big Sky, Bozeman and other Montana towns, and not in a good way https://www.fastcompany.com/90564796/zoom-towns-are-exploding-in-the-west?partner=rss&utm_campaign=rss+fastcompany&utm_content=rss&utm_medium=feed&utm_source=rss
  7. Big Bummer on that. Glad to see you're not hurt and airbags deployed. When I dealt with an Insurance Company on a loss, I looked at like vehicles and what they were charging, and said find me one or pay me for what it's going to cost to actually replace it. They backed down and gave me an extra couple of thousand dollars. Best of luck on your dealings and glad you're OK.
  8. Smart Leadership, Smart Populous, something we should vote for and educate our youth to look beyond short term gains. Was in New Zealand years ago for 5 weeks traveling around. We were offered a partnership with an Antique Dealer on the South Island which would have included traveling all around the South Pacific. Didn't do it, was a dumb move on my part. Glad you are all doing well. Ardern is a keeper.
  9. Here's the crux of that article: We did not consider the use of respirators in the community. Respirators are tight-fitting masks that can protect the wearer from fine particles (37) and should provide better protection against influenza virus exposures when properly worn because of higher filtration efficiency. However, respirators, such as N95 and P2 masks, work best when they are fit-tested, and these masks will be in limited supply during the next pandemic. These specialist devices should be reserved for use in healthcare settings or in special subpopulations such as immunocompromised
  10. It's important to have a forum where you can prove everyone else wrong without any proof.
  11. Just spoke with a very good friend that worked at the High End Restaurant at Big Sky. She said it was the busiest season they ever had, and they stayed open 2 weeks longer than usual because of people still around. Doesn't bode well for the Ski Season, with Big Sky not limiting Skiers on the hill, but Ikon and Mountain Pass Collective will have to make reservations, and subject to limits. Additionally this doesn't help with the Ramcharger lift and notice the codicil "Operationally Feasible": We will not be enforcing maximum capacity on chairlifts and will allow groups traveling t
  12. Does it really matter if anyone of us knows a person who died? https://khn.org/news/exclusive-over-900-health-workers-have-died-of-covid-19-and-the-toll-is-rising/
  13. You and my wife, at the very least. She was the one that reminded me.
