Consolodation will be close to monopoly and thus rising prices and profits.Interwest's Whistler for sale. Check out how nice this property is: http://www.mountainyahoos.com/SkiResorts/Whistler.htmlMammoth Mountain is also in trouble and it's an awesome resort:http://www.mountainyahoos.com/SkiResorts/MammothMountain.htmlThe list goes on and on.
