Lars!!

There are a few of us. Miss the old gang. Turns with you this winter promise.

Pierre is still around and I might see him this week. My little ski hill hit bought out and I'm not a fan of the way the snow sports are being run. So I ski for myself these days.

What's the worth of the name Epicski alone to a company with Epicpasses and Epicmix and Epicracing, and world domination on its mind. I hope Nolo got stock options and use of the Epicski Private Jet.

Lars, we're also too old and our skis are too skinny for us to be on any big resort marketing collateral.

Now that Epic is owned by MNC finances are no longer an issue so it should no longer be necessary for members to "subscribe" to Epic. If that's the case do recent subscribers (supporters) get a refund? What about longer term supporters, will they share in the profit?  And how are you going to define supporters and what is the benefit of being a supporter, actually what's the point of sending money to a mega corp? Sorry if this was asked and answered but I'm not going to go back and re-read twelve pages.  

 

I can see why some people are unhappy about the transaction.

Why?

 

Aren't you curious about how the site will be run by the new owners?

Actually, I'm with Finndog.  Pretty much every nit has been examined and little response to the nits received from New or Old Management.  Oh, there's been a few posts by staff members, but not much in the way of KNOWLEDGEABLE answers.  Clearly we'll have to wait and see.  And anyone who thinks there will be no changes is dreaming, in my OPINION.

At the request of some members, I deleted some posts on the last page that dealt with a combination of personal insults and some off-topic discussion of gatherings that got kinda sensitive.  If you had a post that was caught up in that, send a PM if you're concerned.  We are all for an open conversation, but there is a reason the guidelines ask posters to treat each other with respect.  The team moderates sparingly with the idea you own (are responsible for) what you post.  We'd like Epicski to be a generally positive, fun experience, but it's up to the members to make it that way. 

 

Meanwhile feel free to post on topic about Epicski and the MNC purchase, and try to avoid some of the personal skirmishes.

Guess my attempt at humor to lighten the mood of the thread didn't work?

A thread at 12 pages is desperate for a fat lady with a decent voice.

There's HUGE money in hosting and planning wedding "events".  Now that VR owns the only ski forum in the world proven to have successfully produced multiple  an on-hill marriages, VR will dominate that market for generations to come.  The revenue potential simply boggles the mind.

Bob, that should be plural. fixed it for ya...
