You need more options than Yes or NO, include DO YOU CARE. Some of your readers cannot reflect their opinions to participate.

I chose no, but I really hope the base area isn't still a construction zone when the mountain opens. What a mess

I wonder why they wait until a month before the snow flies to hire subcontractors and get people started on the many jobs that are going on up there? Now it's left up to the subs to get it done in time, while the higher ups are on vacation. As far as the dirtwork, they had an opportunity to have somone else moving all the dirt with larger equipment, but didn't take it because of a budget. Hope everyone has their mud skis ready. Looks like poor planning to me.

If the regrading to the ski area base is not completed and ski school can not operate at the base when the mountain opens, heads should roll (starting at the top)!

Who's bright idea was it not to use a couple of "scrappers" from day one to move the amount of dirtwork required?

City Council dragged them through the proverbial mud to get the re-grading approved...yet another sign of a job done poorly by the current council members. Don't blame Ski Corp - vote for a change.
