    My folks in the NEK were saying that they barely got 4 inches. Sounds like from others that it was a dud. Forecasting can be a hard thing to do. At least it is cold up there. Mild and dry here in...

    A lot of western mountains have limited snowmaking when compared to the east. And most of them are relatively new to snowmaking and have adopted systems with fan guns that only require electricity...

    Were you in the marketing business then? Interesting.

    Agreed.

    I am not going to believe it until the closing is done. Hate to say it, but the family has really lost all credibility.

    Bump. Burke will not be sold for at least a year. Nearly $2 million invested in improvements over the last couple years. Not bad. The big concern is creating enough jobs for the EB-5 investors. ...
