<<As for the economy? LOTS and LOTS of multi-million dollar homes for sale, but other than that we have no real idea what the tourist season will bring until it gets here.
So far it's just another off season in the valley... it's going to be uglier than anyone can imagine, though. I'm expecting about 50% of businesses to go under this season.>>
Agreed. All the playgrounds are going to crash. I'd bet 90%+ of all vacation homes/ski condos are not purchased out of salaries...it's all stock market money and those stocks options that had people multi-millionaires on paper, but are now worthless.
Usually when we get recessions their is some other country doing well that will pick up the tourist slack. This time will be a little different with the global flight to safety driving up the dollar on top of a global slowdown.
