    I could be wrong, but isn't QBurke the name of the company that now owns Burke, not the actual mountain? Are you guys complaining because you think they changed the name of the ski area? Or do you not even approve of the company name? That seems a bit silly. But yeah, is they change the name of the actual ski area I could understand the complaints.

    Kind of like the 80's video game Qbert?

    Exactly, that is why I'm not complaining about it. It is not like "QBurke" is going to be used in their marketing materials. Oh, wait.... The pdf press release keeps refering to Burke Mountain as "QBurke Mountain Resort" . Hopefully that isn't a trend that continues.

    On another note the snowmaking plan sounds like an improvement on the existing snowmaking and not really an expansion to new trails. I wonder if there will be any new trails covered? Maybe the "snow" that is made on Ledges next year won't actually be glacial ice?

    It's the latter because it looks like they are going to put out the name QBurke.

    Why not Burque?

    Wow, that would be a bit of an odd move. The press release from the Burke website shows two logos...

    "Burke True North" and "Q Burke", Guess we'll see how it plays out.

    I'm not complaining, just think it sounds wierd. Until Smellytele said it, I hadn't made the connection, but that was exactly what was in the back of my mind, Qbert

    I say let's have Apple buy Magic & we'll call it iMagic. It sounds better than QBurke! And I'm pretty sure Apple could make it snow in SoVT. I don't mean snowmaking, I mean actual snow from the sky. They can figure that out!

    They actually already have the patent and are just waiting for someone else to try it so Apple can sue them.

    Not to get sidetracked, but IIRC wasn't Magic recently in trouble for using unauthorized references to Harry Potter with some of their newer trail names?
