    Yes there is an app for that!

    I can't read the name QBurke without this image popping into my mind:

    Hi Everyone,
    Hannah here from Burke.
    jaytrem, you are correct. The QBurke Inc. designation refers to the holding company and ownership configuration that owns and operates Burke Mountain Resort. The designation Burke Mountain Resort refers to the property that we’ve all come to know and love and that designation will remain unchanged. Thanks and see you this winter!

    Thanks for the clarification Hannah! The press release was a little confusing, so glad you could clear it up for us!

    An article on the snowmaking: http://vtsports.com/major-snowmaking-upgrades-at-burke

    Note that they are going to open much earlier this season...fingers crossed.

    I'm not sure why BMA is mentioned. Did they chip in for snowmaking upgrades on Warren's Way? I imagine that, like GMVS at Sugarbush, they have to pay rent/money for use of the slopes.

    Well... more like they're gonna open when everyone else does rather than some random weekend in late December. Out of the 3 years I've been here, they've only opened once before LSC left for Christmas break lol. The blog on the website says Black Friday so they finally get with the times of everyone else. Shouldn't be hard seeing as (according to some site I saw), it's the coldest mountain in the east.

    I think they were going to push for opening earlier than that.....

    Be cool if they did... hopefully this November actually turns out cold unlike the past few.
