Response to small potatos
I been skiing Nordic @ Hyak since the eighties. I've watched Nordic grow 10 fold. I think Boyne should not miss the boat. They could easily turn Hyak into "Hyak Nordic". Shut the lift to Alpine skiers. Build a beautiful resturant on their own property and restore the beauty of the hill. As it is Nordic brings far more cash to the hill than the freeloaders and pass holders. Maybe do a deal with the forest service to let the front areas of Hyak turn into a working forest again and allow expansion at Alpenthal. The money for new lifts at Hyak wouldn't gain near the vertical of out back Alpenthal. Plus they would run longer into the spring with the higher altitude. Being a Nordic who skiis or skins up I always hated the traffic of the down hillers. It would be nice to be able to free heal the face with my family and pets. Bring back the snow shoes and possibly a skating rink.
This should spice up the board a little
