Good for us, good for everybody but Bobby Ginn (______ him, and the horse he rode in on......). A 2nd Burke date will still require negotiation and creativity on our part......

Bill Stenger the Owner of Jay peak and now Burke is expected to announce a 500 million dollar development plan in the north east kingdom including the Burke Resort. It appears they'll be adding a hotel to Burke at part of this project.

What? No announcement of 800 condos? Geez-the last 3 or 4 "new " owners had big plans too. :roll:
1: Buy the place.
2: Announce big plans.
3: Try to line up investors to fund your big plans.
4: When the funding falls thru, look for a new buyer.

Like someone said-no matter which direction you come from, you have to drive by one of the top ten ski resorts in the country. And the locals have no money.
We'll see....
Translating road racing to hillclimbing:
Proper tire selection== nothing hooks up on moss or wet leaves.
Staying on the racing line==anything paved is considered good.

This time they may be able to do it. The changes at Jay peak are huge. Hopefully we will still fit in.
