    Post Summer 2018 Northeast Offseason Improvements

    With May less than a week away and only the usual suspects left in the game I thought I would start a thread to keep track of who announces what for offseason improvements this year. It is still early, but already there have been some pretty big announcements and a lot of big projects are in the works. I'll add to this list as more is announced.

    Killington- Snowdon Bubble Six, K1 Gondola new cabins and storage barn, RFID tech, Snowshed/Snowdon tunnels, and the almighty South Ridge Quad
    Jay Peak- New Owner?

    Killington, and Pico are also getting RFID gates to replace scanners. I think there are rumors of Stratton, Loon, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf getting them as well so that the RFID in the Ikon pass is compatible at all mountains on the pass.

    Killington is also putting in a few tunnels on the snowshed crossover and on Snowdon.

    Word on the street is that Jay will sell much more quickly than Burke. The Burke condo owners were told that they should expect the receiver to be running to resort for the duration of next ski season.

    Total shocker! Actually what will be somewhat surprising is selling Jay and not making the new guy take on Burke just to offload it.

    They probably think they can get more by selling each indivdually.
