    Seems the Community and CVR showed support for the poor students, while anyone setting a ski on Tline shows support for Tracy et al.

    Wow, had no idea about the J1 kids being brought in to work the mountain. I'd love to know the tale that was spun to pass that off as some kind of work-study. I wouldn't be surprised about the trust thing.... she told me some tall tale of how she and Fred met at some grand governor's ball and some nonsense about being a Daughter of the American Revolution. Which is ironic since a lot of the rambling late night facebook posts keep highlighting that it was an "Immigrant Business"

    Warning Thread Hijack. Come to the Allegheny Region Mid-A Gathering Feb. 1-4. @Laurel Mountain. Early arrivals will meet at Laurel Friday Feb. 1 with a Happy Hour in the Wildcat Lounge downstairs. We will meet at Laurel Saturday morning 9 AM to start. Depending on condition we may move to Seven Springs on Sunday or Blue Knob. Come join us for the weekend or a day.

    My personal Timberline story? I use to go often enough that their Ridiculous seemed like a deal so I got 2 for wife and I. However conditions on the mountain were never consistent enough to justify the travel and expense. We used our pass just one time one the 3 years we owed them. They were the most expensive day tickets ever but I figured if this helps T-line through a rough winter we will all be the better for it. I see our faith has not been rewarded.

    We now return you to our regularly scheduled thread.

    So as to make amends for posting something that had already been posted here is the circle of life which has a large doughnut and is excellent skiing food.

    Enjoy

    I'm surprised none of the Homeowners Associations have banded together and tried to sue Timberline. Even if there is a low probability of winning any kind of judgement or relief - at least you are helping hasten the death spiral. However I'm not plugged in to local politics, maybe there are some homeowners who are delusional and are still rooting for the owners to make it through their self inflicted predicament?

    Wow... very cool article. And Timberline's approach and treatment of them was dreadful. But it sounds like CVR and Winterplace (and some South Dakota resort) stepped up well.

    One section that jumped out :

    They had asked for 30 J1 sponsored employees? I don't know when that would have been, but seems crazy.

    Trying to sell them a meal plan when the resort did not have functional food services also raises eyebrows.

    I know it won’t happen but I wish the state would step in and take it over, put some money into it and run things as they do CV. If you could ski both hills on 1 pass it would make the area a much bigger player in the winter vacation market than either place is right now imo.
