Today is Thursday, which means its time for another edition of…Encore Wednesday

Joey, do you like investment videos about ski resorts?

New to me, found on the dcski.com forums, in 1982 the Resort Investment Corporation (A Subsidiary of U.S. Capital Corporate) to come up with a plan to upgrade the Blue Knob ski area into a resort. Your host in the five minutes long video — Jim Phelps, err Capt. Clarence Oveur… OK fine, Peter Graves.

I have only been to Blue Knob once, back in 2012. I really liked but, but it seems the ambition of this video was not fully realized. Nevertheless, the video is fun flashback and Blue Knob, under new ownership again, is ski are you really want to succeed.

Oh and here he is hawking Beech Mountain ski area in North Carolina as well, it’s almost the exact same script.

I can’t say whether this plan was realized.

Encore Wednesday was one of Glenn Brenner‘s features which I have borrowed in tribute. The series appears irregularly
