There's no right or wrong answer, just various ways to look at the same things. I've looked at it from a number of different angles and I know what I prefer but to some it may seem a waste of time.

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?

The ski hill was a losing bet from the start. Let's deforest mountains, pollute the watershed and waste an obscene amount of energy making what nature can't consistently provide. Then we'll develop the surrounding areas with hotels and expensive condos so we can sell the whole mess to white people with way too much money and time on their hands.

Next lets factor in increasing temperatures in the east and droughts in the west, and we have the perfect recipe for failure.
