    Ms Sunshine .... (hmmmm, who is this?)

Hello, I have taken the position of "Sunshine Person" (lady) if you chose. My job will be to let you know that our Ski and Rec club is here to acknowledged events that happen in our personal life. These events aren't meant to be noisy, but to let one know that we are here to care. Good,bad,sad, happy moments. So should you want to share, feel free to email, call and let me know how I can be there to acknowledge the event, with a card, from the club. Any suggestion are all ways welcome. Looking forward to your messages.... As ever, Maria Duran

Did you know? (courtesy of National Ski Council):

How ski resorts are fighting climate change. As New England confronts sidewalk avalanches and digs itself out from underneath a blizzard, West Coast skiers are dealing with the opposite problem. Squaw Valley, which averaged 450 inches of snowfall per year between 2008 and 2014, has received less than a third of that amount this season, according to a February snow report.

The snowpack situation is so dire there that the International Ski Federation canceled the skicross and snowboardcross World Cup two weeks before it was scheduled to launch, in early March. Much has been made about the impact of global warming but nowhere is it felt deeper than at ski resort towns, whose economies are pegged almost entirely to snowfall. More. Outside

 

Multi-Resort Season Pass Options Expand. The season’s pass war for 2015-16 has begun, and major resorts are adding a number of new weapons to the fight. Perhaps the biggest development: the growth in limited-use passes. Choice is in. But choice comes with a caveat: customers have to act soon to get the best prices. More. SAM Ed. Note: This article provides a good description of the season passes that cover multiple resorts, including the Vail Epic, the Mountain Collective and the new M.A.X. pass.

 

Ski-lift cost becomes moving target as dynamic prices hit slopes. The $11 billion ski-and- snowboard industry’s shift toward what economists call dynamic or variable pricing makes the cost of a day on the hill less static and more like the moving target of an airplane seat, hotel room or rental car.

               Behind the change is Liftopia, a venture-capital- backed San Francisco data and e-commerce company that says it will sell 5 percent of paid daily lift tickets this year. Resorts across the U.S. have also gone this route on their own, including Alta in Utah, Intrawest Resorts with its six ski areas including Mont Tremblant in Quebec, and Wachusett Mountain Ski Area in Massachusetts. More. Bloomberg News via Ogden Standard Examiner and Google Alert

 

Land managers grapple with backcountry skiing’s impact on wildlife. Anyone who has spent more than a few days backcountry skiing has seen it—animal prints in the skin track. It’s obvious both predators and prey use these human-made paths to their advantage, but what’s the impact of that mixing of species? More. Mountain Magazine’s Logbook

 

Vail Resorts Posts Banner Second Quarter Results. Vail Resorts (VR) reported net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 (ended Jan. 31, 2015) nearly doubled, to $115.8 million from $59.3 million. Total net revenue increased to $530.2 million, up 17.1 percent compared to the same period in the prior year. Notably, the results this year include Park City, which was not part of the VR portfolio a year ago. This summer VR expects to spend approximately $50 million to connect the Park City and Canyons resorts…. More. SAM

 

SIA Snow Show featured state of the ski industry overview. The state of the ski and snowboard industry in the United States is that it’s changing. Some of that change is good, some bad, but overall the industry has serious challenges ahead, including climate change, an aging customer base and aging infrastructure, to name a few. More. Aspen Times via DestiMetrics Ed. Note: The Times covered The Assembly, hosted by mountain resort research firm Destimetrics as an unofficial kickoff to the annual Snowsports Industries America Snow Show, in Denver which features panel discussions and interactive sessions about the ski industry’s place in the larger tourism industry.

 

Colorado considers snow-tire law for I-70. A Democratic state representative from Steamboat Springs has proposed a bill that would require noncommercial vehicles on a 130-mile stretch of I-70 through the mountains to have snow tires or chains from Nov. 1 to May 15, as the law now requires of commercial vehicles. This section of I-70 experiences chronic closures due to snow-related accidents, and has seen several such closures this winter. The goal is to reduce the incidence of accidents and smooth the flow of traffic during the snowiest months. More. SAM

 

16 Ski Resorts Worth Hundreds of Millions Could Be Sold. A real estate investment trust that's considering getting out of the snow business could sell more than dozen ski resorts from Maine to California that are worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

CNL Lifestyle Properties owns 16 resorts including Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine, Bretton Woods, Loon Mountain and Mount Sunapee in New Hampshire, Okemo Mountain in Vermont, Crested Butte in Colorado, Brighton in Utah, and Northstar-at-Tahoe and Sierra-at-Tahoe in California. If CNL sells them all to one buyer, industry officials say it would be the largest single ski resort transaction in the history of the sport — though skiers might not notice the sale at all. More.
