You are correct in these arguments Marc. I suppose the bottom line is the
bottom line. I guess I just fear change when its at a place like Alta. That
and the fact that the split of the Collins and Wildcat liftlines as they
ascended up over that front face was for some reason the most captivating
image of the place for me. Something very surreal and heartwarming about
seeing those two black yan doubles move quietly up quietly up the mountain.
Very similar to the single chair.

I don't fear all change though... save Fenway Park my ssa.
