Working for an electric company serving both Smugglers Notch and Jay Peak, we do not forget what energy is used to run lifts and make snow. Neither Smuggs nor Jay is the largest industrial customer of Vermont Electric Cooperative, but they're very, very important. At a previous Annual Meeting, our guest speaker was Bill Stenger, who's General Manager of Jay Peak. He eloquently reminded us of what happens during an outage when many, many skiers are sitting on the lifts or standing in the tram.
The last time I was near such an event was a few years ago during the Jackson Hole gathering of the Bears. There was no outage, but Fox Hat and several others were left sitting on the lift for half an hour. Ask him about it sometime.
