Vail Resorts Inc. (MTN: NYSE)
By MKM Partners ($189.00, March 20, 2017)

We attended Vail Resorts' annual investor day last week and reiterate our Buy rating. The meeting reinforced in our view: (1) the strength and durability of the business model, (2) the continued opportunity for M&A, (3) the importance of and remaining incremental opportunity for targeted and personalized marketing to help drive season pass sales, and (4) the operating leverage in the earnings model with room for further margin expansion and therefore upside potential to already strong free cash flow.

Durability of the business model. (1) High barriers to

 The Least Expensive Home in The Colony-By a Million Dollars!!

There is indeed a treasure at the end of the rainbow...   

Our seller clients love The Colony so much, they purchased a second larger lot higher up the hill and they're designing their dream home.  

Some in The Colony might consider this home to be a "guest home" because you have plenty of room on the 2+ acre property to build a main home and/or an accessory building in the meadow overlooking the lakes, though there is no requirement to build anything else in the future.

Bigger Isn't Always Better...

Not all families want a gargantuan vacation home.  Many will find this ~4300 square foot 3 Bedroom home (plus an additional bunk-room with SIX bunks serviced by TWO

You've heard the news about Vail's acquisition of Park City Mountain Resort and the $50 million they are investing to create the nations largest ski resort. You have probably also heard of Deer Valley's acquisition of Solitude, plans for future expansion on the Mayflower parcel and the proposed gondola linking Main Street to Deer Valley Resort.  Clearly the arrow is pointing up for Park City in all aspects, and certainly chief among them is the future value of real estate.
