    From the article:
    The situation is not as rosy at Burke Mountain, he wrote. Revenue for the last ski season was less than anticipated, and skier visits were down 6 percent. The ski area hotel that opened to much excitement in 2016 lost money during the 2017-18 skiing season, though bookings were up over this past summer.

    60 more job openings on top of the number of employees they already have, seems a little ambitious. Even if they added a big snowmaking crew of 30-45 people, where do you come up with the other jobs?

    It used to be they didn't need direct jobs but could show indirect jobs such as jobs at local businesses that had been added.

    Oh, right, yeah. Forgot about that angle, as well as making it possible to maintain a certain level of existing jobs as well.
