    I'd heard that they were aiming for November 16th.

    Got this via email last night...

    Breaking News & Updates
    You can feel it in the morning air-winter is on its way! Our major snowmaking upgrades are in progress-Little Dipper is complete with new snow guns and work begins today on Bear Den. 90 new snow guns arrived at the mountain a few weeks ago and there are still 50 more on the way. We are starting our snow dances early and if temperatures and weather permits, snow guns are scheduled to fire up as early as November 6 in hopes of a late November opening. If this doesn't get you excited about the upcoming winter, maybe some big news will. We are thrilled to share with our season pass holders and guests that we will have some big announcements coming your way on Thursday, September 27. Please join us at the Tamarack Grill between 4 and 6pm with the new owners and partners of Burke Mountain, QBurke Resorts, and the Burke management team. We will be gathering with State and Federal officials to announce plans for the future of Burke Mountain and the surrounding area.
    It will be interesting to see the plan

    Methinks that Bill and Ariel found some spare EB-5 change in the seat of their car and are going to use it to build a hotel/conference center at Mid-Burke.

    Exactly. This may have something to do with finalizing those plans...

    Reposted from an old thread...

    My guess is, after snowmaking upgrades (which are easy to plan and execute in a few months), something like this will be the first new thing we see at Burke.

    I also bet it looks similar to the structures built at Jay, which I think were well thought out. Plus the hotel creates the jobs that are neccessary to justify the investment, which is the key to the whole project.

    Look closely at my rendering. The Bear Den is still there Hopefully they keep it (somewhere) on the mtn. The construction technique used to build it should make it fairly easy to disassemble and move if they wnated to.

    Move it up on the mtn where the pavilion is!

    Hotel & Conference Center would be a great add for Burke. Combine that (if that is what it is) along with the new HSQ, better snow making, and a commitment to early season and Burke is really going to launch itself into the big time. Plus all of those folks coming over from Jay on the combo pass. Sleeply Burke may be a thing of the past once that hotel goes up. The NEK doesn't really have much for conference centers, right? Outside of Jay at least...
