    While we're expanding westward, Greek Peak, NY and Toggenberg, NY are both owned by two long time skiers of Greek Peak who are businessmen from Elmira.

    Alright, some great feedback.  Updated list...

    Suggestions so far:
    - Hermatige
    - Lost Valley
    - Black Mountain, NH
    - Tenney (when they open)
    - Magic
    - Loveland
    - Silverton
    - Oak Mtn
    - Sugarbush
    - Mad River Glen
    - Plattekill
    - Caberfae 
    - Lyndon Outing Club
    - Cochrans
    - Dartmouth Skiway
    - Whaleback 
    - Abram
    Bousquet
    - Wachusett
    - Ski Ward
    - Elk Mountain
    - Greek Peak
    - Toggenberg 

    Possible removals:
    - Bolton (maybe kicked out do to real estate group ownership) 
    - Smugglers Notch (teighs says Bill Stritzler is not a skier)

    As to obienick's question about defining "big, for-profit corporations", I don't really know.  That was was a suggested change in title by mtsnow123.  I guess I would refer back to my original intent of "skier-owned" and MRG's claim that they are the only skier-owned mountain.   And I'd throw in your own judgement of what big corporate means.

    Nashoba Valley was, and I guess still is, owned by the Fletchers, isn't it? Allen (?) Fletcher was a skier and his daughter Pam (U.S. Ski Team) certainly is.

    What about Titcomb in Farmington, ME.  I think it is owned by a ski club

    So getting back to the original premise of this thread.  Mad River Glenn claims to be "America's ONLY skier-owned mountain".  The list above shows at least two dozen areas that prove MRG's claim false.

    Pats Peak was built and still owned by the Patenaude Family. (Hopefully I spelled it correctly)
