    winter is approaching

    by midwestfabs Oct 5, 2014 11:55 AM

    Season pass sales end today, we shall see if they extend or if the goals were met.
    A week late start for opening, but 36 inches last week, 5 last night.
    I have been out 4 times this year and there definitely seems to be tourists, lots of rental skis, and paper tickets for early season.

    winter is approaching

    I would keep it in the portfolio unil late spring at the earliest. I know that our group plans to get to Vail in February, and we'll probably leave about $20,000 there based upon what we've spent in the past. May as well as earn some of that back in the price of the stock

  • what will this winter season bring for vail resorts? curious on opinions on how much longer to keep this in the portfolio...

    Not a single post for 18mos?

    might want to recheck post dates, but lack of post might mean that people that called it overvalued and it would tank when it was priced in the mid 40's-50's are probably kicking themselves since it has almost doubled since then. once one wastach becomes a reality it will be icing on the cake. was your ski's is all i have to say.

    Analyst who are upgrading this stock must know nothing about skiing/boarding. Park City deal is not a "steal" by any means. Its already an overpriced beginning area that locals & real destination snow riders have tired of long ago. I think people must think they actually bought the ski area. All Vail bought was the base & the lift infrastructure. Just like their Canyons' purchase next door, they are leasing the actual runs from Talisker Land Holdings, Inc. @ rates much higher than previous owners. Yes, they bought both Canyons & PC to be a tenant.

    The best part for Vail is the the base condo opp - but its not that much room & will cost a bunch. Plus read the local comments under the local coverage of this deal. They hate what Vail did to the Canyons & will hate the new PC condos also. I don't think Vail will get the ROI on any new development or on this deal that Wall St. believes. One story yesterday said that Vail Resorts expects $35 million in incremental EBITDA in fiscal year 2015 but didn't bother to say that was not NET. PC is already in decline (new infrastructure doesn't make new terrain) & will only get worse w/ Vail's overpricing to pay their large debt & land leases. The thing is it will take awhile for the street to see this so plenty of time to get short.

    Market place has already provided its perspective............up 12% ($9) yesterday and another 2.5% ($2) today.

  • this is incredible that a retail brand like vail would not have a single post. was hoping for a little perspective on the park city deal. if this does show the stock market is just a rich guys game, nothing does.
