Vail Resorts Inc. Message Board

    Vail info

    Just a few comments regarding the upcoming ski season and how things are looking. I am in the service biz in Vail so I have a bit of an inside look at how things are going. Word has it bookings are 30-40 percent down from this time last year. I think it is not quite as bad and this year will be down around 20%, which still is not good! Vail Resorts does not have a very good relationship with the board in Vail and the word is they will not be permitted to create the EverVail project until they release the rights to the parking structure in Lionshead. I do not think the Evervail project will work anyway, unless things turn around. The glory days are gone for awhile. They cannot even sell the Ritz Carlton fractional ownerships in Lionshead. I really do not understand why the stock is doing so well. I can tell you there are a lot of New York wall street people that visit and I wonder if this has something to do with the hype regarding VR. My best guess is to stay nuetral on the stock. If it happens to hit 40, short it. it will probably go back down to the 20's. all business entities are freaking out a bit in the Vail Valley. We are hoping for good things to happen, but I cannot say there is a lot of good vibes happening here! Good luck with you investments.
