    They might, but it might not be for snow sports. Vail seems to be smart enough to know they can't be a snowsports only company. I just heard from an engineering colleague today that there is an RFP...

    Great new graphics but was hoping to see some design changes like a RVL8 longboard or something as simple as adding the Spliff/Sticky 4x4/4x10 setback inserts to the RCs and DLPs. For us taller...

    Yup, Peaks acquired it last season. Peaks Resorts was a collection of small family hills and it actually fit. I guess Vailís interest is to get those families to travel West and spend some cash on...

    Peaks Resorts are now EPIC?

    So if, like me, you are a skier/rider of a Peaks Resorts property on the East Coast (Jack Frost, Big Boulder, Hunter, Mt Snow, etc.) there was some big news this morning. Vail just announced a deal...

    Is skiboarding dying? Yes and No

    For the YES: I have definitely seen less true skiboarders on the mountain each year (on general days when I am not going to a planned meet-up with another...

    Don't let the weather in the City fool you. It's been plenty cold to make snow in the mountains and they have gotten snow as recent as early this week with a few inches on the way this weekend. ...

    Alta must be doing okay (financially) if they can do this. Most resorts in my area credit snowboarding for saving the mountains in the late 80s/90s. Many of them had snowboarder-only parks back...
