yep- i coulda told you that 6 years ago.....
actually, it will likely be longer.... the "4-year" thing is based on the period (until 2010) that they have been granted to rebuild it. they claim they'll do it at the last possible minute, while, in fact, it's highly likely that they are praying gene mulvihill buys the resort (sans their real estate McVillage) back, hence, they aren't wasting a DIME on anything outside their McVillage.
amazing: building all those rental McVillage units, and leaving that skanky tent for a base lodge. as soon as all the rubes have moved into the units, The Corporation will ahve satisfied their real estate goals, and dump the greater resort (base "lodge", lifts, runs) to the best bidder.
a far as your rack (ummmski rack) they can't catch every perp, but theft is WAAY down, and they are recovering the bulk of the swag.
my better half returns to work on friday or so, lemme know if you'll be skiing, marta- we'll join you for a slice of pizza at south!
