I have been watching this forum for a long time. I was told this was one of the best sites, but now I realize, it’s just a way for the more senior members to criticize others for their mistakes and comments .
Until now I have held back from saying anything on various topics
But with the incident that involved Stein I just couldn’t take it anymore.
Most of the members ( the knitting circle) or those who have posted comments here are acting like they are the judge , jury and executioner. WHO GAVE YOU THAT RIGHT?
How the heck can you sit there and judge him, for something you have read, that is 2nd. 3rd. 4th. hand news? Your all quick off the draw to blame him. You also probily blame the lift operator for you dropping your hat , when you 5 towers from the loading ramp.
You all just need to shut the **** up. If you didn’t personally witness the incident, you have no right to convict him.
Have yet to read one comment here, from any of you, saying that you called Deer Valley and asked to see the report. Well ‘get er done‘. If not bury the subject. It’s done and over with. Get a life.
I’ll bet my house, that Stein is truly sorry for the whole thing to happen.
He’s not a mean spirited person, as some here insinuate he is. For a person in his 80’s to still be able to get out every day and go skiing is truly an amazing thing. Yet there are some here who think he’s told old to ski. So what ,resorts ban you from skiing if your past 30 years old? Well that’s is what some of sound like.
Ah excuse me, you’ll be 80 years old some day, and will still be fit enough to ski., but will not be able to, because many years ago , you and a group of 30 somethings got resorts to ban the older skier.
One other thing.
Stop bashing Deer Valley for something that some people love while skiing. And that is to be pampered like a king. They have a niche that over 300,000 - 400,000 people a year enjoy. But no, the KNITTING CIRCLE here, thinks the industry doesn’t needs anything remotely close to the product that D.V. offers. Why are you so afraid of being treated like royalty?
They must be doing something right, that no other resort can even touch. So what is so wrong with that? And what is so wrong with readers of a magazine votes them as the best resort in North America? So you don’t like the idea, you don’t have to ski there. You all sound like a bunch of poor sports when your favorite team loses the game. Deal with it.
Your crying and whining is getting old fast.
So if standing in long lift lines, eating cold rubbery burgers, and dealing with employees who don’t know what a shower is, then ski there. As for a few of us, we prefer the finer things in life.
