Honestly if you want to get the most out of the ski industry, you should support our socialist ski hills i.e. Whiteface, Gore and Belleayre. We, the taxpayers, both own and subsidize these hills and...

LOL - almost every single "mom and pop's" business in America has been engulfed by corporate structure, and I'm supposed to feel bad about the ski industry?
