canadian ski trip?? put your money where the sun don’t shine

if you’re planning a trip to ski canada next season, congratulations. canada has some fantastic skiing throughout the country.

stay away from sunshine village.

the owners there have fired long time mountain management and ski safety employees after the owner’s son was caught skiing a closed area.
while the legal battle has clouded some issues, two things are painfully clear.
1. the owner is attempting to get out of paying substantial separation packages legally required in canada (think long term employees 20+ years)
2. the owner is a douchebag

other online discussions of the matter have been met with cease and desist orders from the attorneys of sunshine village.
