    And, BTW, Masskier, I'm still awaiting an answer for my question.

    Let it go.



    Do you seriously think anyone closely connected with the mountain think it would be a good idea to entertain publicly answering a question regarding something like that?

    Say there was a payment withheld from a contractor. Maybe it was withheld due to a dispute over the job that was done. Of course both sides in a scenario like that will claim they are in the right.

    If he doesn't want to answer it, that's fine. He just hasn't indicated one way or the other.

    so your position is that most people staying at a hotel on a ski mountain will not ski at all or only ski the handful of greens?

    not sure what's more delusional, that or the idea that these Qlowns will be around in the future.

    Wherever and however the hotel guests ski, I have always maintained that the hotel is an important component in making the mountain profitable. I fully recognize that profitability is key to long term survival. Change needed to happen. While I am quick to point out when change is counterproductive, it's only fair that change for the better is recognized.

    I read the hotel will have 116 rooms. From there, I estimate 200 people will ski per day (almost 2 per room on average), so I assume most people there will in fact ski...who perhaps weren't going to be there anyway if the hotel wasn't built (assuming it was still open). To me, that's not a big # and won't impact lift lines etc. except around the margin. Also, I would bet the hotel will attract more families and novices than those that already frequent Burke, hence the Green/Sherburne comment.

    Look, we are all in agreement on the Q and we will need to see about the future. They own it now, have significant backing and I would guess will give the hotel 3-4 years at least to see how it shifts skier visits, before they would opt to sell.

    Am I wrong in being skeptical that Burke will ever be able to routinely come close to filling 116 hotel rooms?

    Holidays, sure, but other than that?
