TMF Conan,

I actually started casually tracking this stock after I got a behind the scenes tour of Vail and a meeting with the developers with Vail Industries last year at a convention I was at. I know a little bit about development, and these guys are smart, savvy and know their business. Vail Industries is much more than Vail, CO, but I thought it was a good little insight into the mentality of the business, which is impressive.

That doesn't always tranfer into a good balance sheet, and I actually have not taken the time to check if it does, but I think the stock is up 40-50% since last April when I started watching.

I am also interested to know if anyone else has delved into this one.
