Jay buying Burke[quote][//quote]

Its kind of like buying the competition, although for a while Burke was the better option due to less crowds. But now with the new chair @ Burke its kind of a wash. Can there be two golf courses/amazement parks so close together, and both still be profitable? Maybe it should be interesting.People should learn endurance; they should learn to endure the discomforts of heat and cold, hunger and thirst; they should learn to be patient when receiving abuse and scorn; for it is the practice of endurance that quenches the fire of worldly passions which is burning up their bodies.

Rumor is, indoor 18 hole golf course at Burke.

My guess, golf will stay at Jay, MTB (lift served) will get even bigger at Burke.
Burke will get more snowmaking capacity, a slopeside hotel, the old Willoughby quad will get moved to East Bowl, and maybe a new Mid-Burke lodge within the next three years.
I hope the new owner realize that the East Bowl area will be much more attractive if it is left gladed rather than mowed down for open trails. But we do know Jay Peak does know a bit about how glades are marketableAim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

IMO, this is great for NEK but that is from an outsider business perspective. The JP management has a proven track record and this should be good for the year round economy up that way. Change happens but get involved and voice your concerns to influence that change.
I don't think we should worry about East Bowl cut into Sunday River runs. Jay definetely gets that. Sooo many good days tits deep . . .
I wish this well for all.
