What are you basing that lot on?
I was up last weekend and was pleased to see all the fencing had gone in. It wasn't until later in the day I was told teher would be no fencing bought due to lack of cash.

I'm not sure they did. Two and a half new pisters seems daft by anyone's standards. One, fair enough, but the extra kit last year was crazy. Maintenance first, must be the motto. If the fencing doesn't catch the snow, what are they gonna piste?

Is it coping though? The fencing will be worse at the start of season 12/13 than 11/12. Is that coping?

Last year's work wasn't finished due to bad weather. They did Coire Fionn and Meall Odhar poma very late in the day. Since the end of the season, the remainder has gone into the Tiger and Cairnwell.
In short Im not worried; Graham has certainly seen tighter days and Glenshee Ltd and the centre itself have been through worse, alot worse.
Well, I'm a dour and negative prick; I'll worry for us both. Bear in mind that that all the current lot were around when Paterson ran the place so badly in the 80s and 90s. They should know that the ski centre needs funds for a rainy day, not shiny piste bashers sitting inoperative.
