MTN management provided more detail than we expected on its internal and external growth strategy. We see a path for multi-year earnings growth and industry outperformance, driven by the following drivers: (1) increased customer data and more sophisticated analytics, (2) increased Epic Pass penetration, (3) continued network effect from (i) recent and (ii) additional acquisitions, (4) continued rollout of Epic Discovery summer and (5) development opportunities, and continued investment in resort amenities."
