Vail Resorts Aquires Whistler Blackcomb
@AdustytrunkMonkey: I've experience working for intrawest, powdr and Vail. Powdr are worse to their employees than either of the other 2. Biggest bunch of cheap asses in the biz imo. I mean who takes money from powdr, to buy a chuck of another resort, but purchase it "as a family" to not have to include it on their passes with other resorts. Seriously, if you think powdr is the best in the resort industry, you need to look around a bit.

The 2001 world cup was 3 days after 9/11, half the riders had trouble getting there and all festivities except for the race were cancelled of course they lost money. That was Vail resort, not Vail corporation though.

Having lived in Vail, I can tell you that mountain has little interest in biking. That said, they have turned a blind eye to some sweet pirate trails on mountain, and have shown some improvement the last 2 or 3 years. Typically, the resorts they purchase run pretty much the same as they did prior to Vail's purchase. Whistler has already been dumbing down some things the past few seasons, I'm sure Vail will get the blame for that. The bikepark world overall is dumbing down, just like terrain parks in the winter did 5-7 years ago. Northstar seems to have slightly improved, and keystone is keystone. Keystone will attempt to get better for a few seasons, then do nothing for a few seasons, that has been the cycle for at least the last 12-15 years there. I was at Canyons the year after Vail bought them, everything seemed normal, but maybe that changed. Heavenly is trying to start a bike park, but the environmentalists in Tahoe are hanging that up. I only mention this because I'd think Whistler will be pretty much the same, as most people will continue to be employed at their current positions, no matter who owns them. You all should just be mad that you didn't have Whistler stock 2 days ago.
