Re[2]: [at-l] More Saddleback

     Properly nurtured, communities are finding out that "hiking" is a 
     four-season activity, whilst skiing is one. While skiiers may spend 
     4:1 with respect to hiker dollars, it is much more efficient to set up 
     the commercial infrastructure for year-round activity than for the 
     boom-bust cycles endured by skiing communities.
     THAT'S what the "good business" question being weighed in most 
     communities is currently. As well, the ANSWER to the question will 
     depend as much as where the community is NOW as much as where they 
     want to BE later.

I dunno. I see it as an issue of $$$. Skiers spend tons of money. Hikers 
spend very little. I think Maine will do what she thinks is 'good business'. 
Why put a Mainer out of a job so some hippie bum from New Jersey can have one 
day of 'good view-shed'?
