So whats this rumour I keep hearing about the park not opening this year???

It makes no senses to me, they managed to open last year but the rumours are saying its no longer financially viable for Vail, they've lost too much revenue in 2020, they dont have the staff to open safely....any of this true?Theyve already canceled Crankworx which is a little odd to me...Several different ways for them to run the show safely, why make the call so early?Cry

Im about the pull the trigger on a new DH and would very much like to have a confirmation on that

Seems pretty strange. I would think they would have a killer year. Mammoth Mountain already has 2021 bike passes on sale.

last I heard Canada is closed to American Tourists because of the virus. my guess is the volume of americans is what paid the bills.

This would suck... and I say this mostly because I don't want the added traffic locally.

where is the rumour mill coming from?

Have you ever been to Whistler? I would agree that the volume of foreigners pays the bills. But Americans hardly made up the largest percentage of visitors. And if they are significant percentage of visitors, a lot will be day trippers from Washington State. Not exactly a big revenue source compared with someone coming out for a week from the UK.

Would this be the time of the year that bike park crew gets hired in Whistler?

When Vail decided to leave Keystone closed for 2020, it became apparent around mid-May. Because no summer bike-related jobs ever got posted.
