Vail Resorts Inc. Message Board

    things are looking a bit better

    I should clarify something I stated on a previous VR message board. I said bookings at that time were down 30-40 percent. Revenue booked was down by that much from what I was told, but bookings were not down that much. In other words, they are not getting the same pricing for rooms. I assume they are getting the same price for the lift tickets. The Vail Daily says that airport bookings are up 4% from this time last year, which sounds promising and things seem to be picking up a bit. It is very dry out here right now, but still early. Thanksgiving will probably be a bit slow unless we get some snow pretty quick. In fact, the golf course I play just extended the season for another week, so I guess I will teeing it up for another week. I still do not know how they can put up the numbers they have in the past because real estate sold will be off by a large amount. I believe they have sold the last Arrabelle unit. There are a lot of variables with this stock, such as the weather, so I would stay away myself. Just a few thoughts.
