Ha! There are tons of those. And I can see them getting old quick (luckily they have their own forum). Though after spending a week reading the old ones I just added to the pile. The problem with resort select threads is of course that every group, skier, whatever, has different budgets, needs, ability levels, interests. Unlike boot threads (which going to, I dunno, a bootfitter would solve) you're mining for some semi-local knowledge about places that is difficult to mine from a trail map and Expedia. If you simply look at "Which is best" you're likely to get a grab bag of opinions that seldom ask "For whom?" Backcountry access and bowls probably aren't high up on a family ski trip list. And sure that guy had a great time but was he skiing Greens, Blues, Blacks? Hell we probably have differing definitions of "night life".
But I digress - the real reason we can't have the SEARCH JONG action is that the search here rather blows. Glad I got 3 threads with no replies from 2002. Very relevant, helpful. Then again I find TGR's to be not much better but that doesn't stop them. I'm glad Epicski folk continue to be helpful, tolerant rather than playing to a crowd of 20 who do little else than sit on that board like many places do. Sucks having to apologize for missing the link from a discussion 5 years ago that shows up on page 8 of the search. (I do think that sticky threads could help keep the noise down though)
That's why I love Epicski - because there's none of that BS and the crowd seems to be all over the place. You can ask a question about skiing with kids for the first time, or get in arguments about traverse manners for weeks on end. It's a fun grab bag.
