navy,

sounds interesting, thanks for the book rec. I actually grew up in a small ski town (Bozeman, MT) and know a bit about local attitdues towards big business (i.e. hatred).

Looking a bit at the financial picture...wow, I figured it would be seasonal, but it's night and day...well in the red during summaer and fall, well in the black during winter and spring. I'm surprised that SG&A costs are so high in the summer with no lift operations and less employees.

One thing I do like about this company is they seem to be pretty generous to employees. My wife said she received free passes, subsidized housing and a respectable salary.

I doubt that there's huge upside in this company, but it doesn't look like it's going away any time soon either, to me this is one of those "better than a checking account" kind of stocks.

Max
