    Killington Poma moved to Swirl, adding new snowmaking for whatever is needed for the new "training" area there. K-1 gondola storage barn enclosed.

    Not wrong, it'll just be hard to sell Burke. If you sold them together you would get the price of Jay plus a few pennies haha. Selling Burke separately creates a floor for what the price can be.

    Anyone know how many owners Burke has had? It seems like it's changed hands a lot over the last 20 or so years.

    Apparently Loon is replacing their Gondola cabins this summer or fall (fall probably between summer/winter ops) with new but still 4 passenger cabins. Wonder how much that is costing, I don't think CWA makes 4 pax cabins very often so this has to be a special order.

    Wow! That must be a pretty rare order in 2018, 4 passengers always feels so tight but maybe they've found a way to get a little more interior space. I'll do just about ANYTHING to get one of the old ones of and when they sell em.

    HA! That's quite a list! It's changed hands a lot. I remember the hub-bub back in the day when the Never Ending Story guy bought the place.

    You should have ridden in the old Wildcat/Sugarbush/Sugarloaf 2 person ones.
