    Bromley is doing pretty well for themselves in a partnership or semi ownership type relationship with Cranmore and Jiminy Peak.

    Boyne has zero interest in buying any more resorts.

    ....in the next 3 to 5 years

    Is what the article says. A lot can change in that time frame though.

    Maybe they stick to what they have, but I think it would be wise to get into the NJ, NY, CT market. Having something local to that market would only help drive traffic to their more distant resorts. A Bromley would work, especially if they could expand it a bit.

    Personally, based on their plans and pace at Big Sky and need for reinvestment at most of the rest of their portfolio, I think they have about zero aquisition capital in that time frame. They could decide to leverage up again but I think they will be cautious about that. Since they have parts of the former ASC empire, hopefully they take a lesson from that forray into high leveraged aquisitions.

    Well, Rangley airport is getting a bunch of cash to improve itself, namely a runway extension. Not sure how much (it needs quite a bit I believe to fit most jets), now they just need to get that ski resort going again.

    Current length is 3,200 feet, adequate for light piston twins and even a basic slow Citation jet. There's lots of factors involved, one of which is what level of safety you want to assume. There's a difference between what the airplane is capable of if an engine doesn't fail on take-off and you're light on load and fuel, vs heavy load with extra runway for aborting with engine failure.

    The extension to 4,300 feet is based on what's known as balanced field length for B200 King Air, which is the fixed wing med-evac airplane. It's a smallish corporate turboprop, in the same family as the often seen Beech 1900 19 seat commuter plane.

    However you can land most corporate jets into 4,300 feet.

    It's a lousy non precision instrument approach there too.

    Nice you found the planned extension length. 4300 is decent, could get the Phenom 300 in and out, dry anyway. Haven't looked at the approaches there, but extended strip first, better RNAV can be added later.

    Sadly, no positive saddleback news, just a link to an article about closure effect on Rangely

    This is very sad. Not what anyone wanted.
