**warning** I am just ranting here... not even sure if any of it makes sence - so it's ok if you hate.
what happened? did skiing become less fun? i mean, it's not like it's gotten to expensive... golf is still about the golf isn't it?
soon ski resorts will be thinking of ways to keep winter away so the golf course can stay open all year and they don't have to deal with chairlifts, snow conditions, and the failing industry that is skiing.
or maybe we're just jelous of europe and are trying to compensate for that by giving the impression that people actually live in the mountains in canada, not just around them...
i don't know... maybe instead of selling condo's for money the ski resort's around the world could get into public trading and have shares... like when you buy your seasons pass you get a share with the option to invest more if you want... or something. a way the ski hill can make money off skiing without having to build a condo.
and they need to take the environment into account. charge more for lift tickets based on how much damage the hill does, or has done.
and what's with people on EI saying stupid shit like "what about the poor people in africa" you're on EI you stupid fuck..
