    This with the improvements that Andy Holmes made in the late 90's along with all of the improvements made to snow making in the 2005-2007 will give Burke a 1st class snow making system. They now will have the infrastructure, pumps, compressors, water and over 300 high efficient snow guns

    You didn't see that during the initial purchase discussion? Ari Quiros (Bill Stenger's partner) is the primary investor in the mountain which is where the "Q" came from.

    I got an idea for a good graphic to mock this....



    Really Burke? Really? REALLY?

    Someone tell Quiros that Burke isn't big enough for his ego. There really is no need to insert Q into Burke Mountain Resort.

    I know that is where the Q comes from, but (1) Burke has changed its logo, tagline, and other intellectual property WAY too many times in the last few years, and (2) it sounds so cheesy and reminds me of QVC.

    In my life time, Burke has been:

    1. Burke: The Sweet Spot (1990-1992 or so)
    2. Burke Mountain: Vermont's Northern Star
    3. Burke Mountain/Bear Kingdom, Limited (1992-1995)
    4. Northern Star/Burke Mountain (1995-1997)
    5. Burke: Simply. Better. (1997-2000) (and was owned by Northern Star).
    6. Burke: the Bear is Back (2000-2005)
    7. Burke (mountain logo) owned by Ginn LaBurski (2005-2011)
    8. Burke: True North (2011-current)

    Stick with the damn bear.
