Dude just stop posting. First of all The Mountain and Highlands are the smallest areas Boyne owns (Big Sky, Brighton Utah, Cypress BC, Sunday River Maine, Etc Etc). Also they did not get sued, and thats not why they went flat this year. The reason they went flat this year is because so did Cabrafe, Crystal, and Nubs. They did it as a preventive measure, and as a deal with each other so that if one of them went flat they would not lose business to the others. The main influence in this decision was a recent settlement from Snoqualmie Pass in California where a terrain park accident paid off 22 million to a guy that got paralized from a jump. The bottom line is that insurance Lawyers do not like jumps.
