What are the local economic conditions in Bishop now vs then?
Hard to say. Bishop tourism is heavily summer oriented: hiking, fishing, Mule Days Memorial weekend, a rodeo Labor Day weekend.

The Intrawest years were 1998-2006 and the plan then was to make Mammoth a true national destination. Access remains the biggest deterrent if you poll skiers from the eastern 2/3 of the country, and the highly unreliable Mammoth airport only served from west coast cities (thus 2 plane changes for many easterners) hasn't changed that issue much.
