    Specific Burke information:

    The Burke Mountain Resort opened its winter operations on November 23, 2018, which
    was the earliest the slopes were open at Burke since the 1990's. Above average snowfal122 and
    early season cold temperatures (which allowed for efficient snowmaking, helped shape the
    winter season). The resort ceased winter operations on April 14, 2019, the first year in the
    resort's known history in which operations exceeded 130 days for a season. At the end of March
    (the mid-point in its fiscal year), the resort registered a 26% increase in sales. Other gains include:
    the number of skier visits increased 20%; season pass revenue was up 13%; hotel room
    nights increased 47%, pushing lodging revenue up 29%; and food and beverage sales gained
    26%. Although the Burke Mountain Resort is trending in the right direction, it is still losing
    money and the Receiver is supplementing its operations from the proceeds of litigation
    recoveries and the sale of Burke Mountain related properties.

    [....]

    The Bike Park opens on May 25, 2019. Last season saw triple digit growth in Bike Park
    visits. Management expects continued, but more measured growth this season. Current ski
    season pass sales for fiscal year 2020 are already up 17%. The resort has been nominated by Ski
    Are Management (the professional trade organization for mountain resorts) for a best marketing
    campaign aware for the winter season. The Burke Mountain Resort will maintain with a strong
    brand marketing campaign to continue to grow sales.

    The wheels of justice turn slowly, but eventually they get there.

    Even slower when a State & its' powerful officials seek to block & obfuscate it.

    Wonder if justice will ever come for any State of Vermont employee (I doubt it).

    Bump. Burke will not be sold for at least a year. Nearly $2 million invested in improvements over the last couple years. Not bad. The big concern is creating enough jobs for the EB-5 investors.

    ffs, I am computer-literate but I cannot find what time Burke opens its lifts. I need to know mid-season weekend hours. Is it 8am or 8:30am first chair???

    I am now EXTREMELY familiar with the Burke website and various Google keyword searches including "ski Burke", "hours", "lifts", and "operating hours".
    2019-2020 19 days and counting...
    Thunder Ridge: 12/7, 12/8, 12/21, 12/26, 12/27, 12/28, 12/29
    Killington: 11/15, 12/16, 12/17, 12/18, 12/19, 12/20, 12/23 Mount Snow: 11/27, 12/2, 12/24 Jiminy Peak: 12/6 Catamount: 12/13 Pico: 12/19 Mohawk: 12/27

    Generally it’s 9:00 AM. If there is a race it can be earlier.
