    I think the preserve jobs only can be applied to businesses in trouble.

    Sure. I could see Mount Snow/Peaks saying that it is "a business in trouble" WITHOUT snowmaking due to global warming, etc.

    Enough guessing aside. Can anyone dig up the Mount Snow application that sets forth their reasoning?

    Was not offered under the troubled business, but is located in a TEA and as such can use the indirect jobs method for job creation. What I found interesting is that Mount Snow will be leasing the west lake for $10 per year and paying $5,000 per 1 million gallons used for snowmaking.

    I also read that Mount Snow will not be using the Vermont Regional Center for Phase II of their EDB-5 offering.

    The new lift will pretty much be a widening of the Mid-Burke Express lift line cut (aka Re-Run) by 10-50'. My concern is that by doing this, the Mid-Burke Express might be opened up to more wind, especially at the top half of Upper Warrens Way.

    Showing a roughly 20 ft wide clearance (my guess at a minimum width):

    Edit to add that skiing the cross-over between Warrens Way and McHargs is going to be more dangerous. In the current setup you can easy see the uphill Poma riders and pass between them with no problem. However, the new T-bar is going to be on the other side of the trees which means cross traffic may have to stop and look before proceeding.
    Was hoping you'd be keeping us updated with a steady flow of pictures!

    Not many of those old Pomas left. I rode that lift years ago. Even went up a few times on a snowboard.

    It was a bit surreal last March when I was up at Burke where my daughter was racing riding the poma, knowing that it was in its last days of service and that one of the true legendary lifts that has helped produced so many Olympians was just about done with it's service...

    Looks like quite a bit of blasting and grading completed up top.
