    Well - if that's true it's a relief - as long as no Q's are involved.



    oops.
    Stenger's sons remain employees at Jay Peak, and Ary Quiros, the controversial CEO of "Q" Burke Mountain Resort, remains employed there as well.

    The tram cost $2M to build back in the 1960s. That would be more like $15M scaled for inflation.

    This questions has been asked often. The north ridge is just too windy. In addition, they've mentioned that bubbles on a detachable makes it even more susceptible to wind.

    Personnally, I'd be happy with a winter with no tram. However, with no Tram , there would not be any grooming to the top so the short hike would be exponentially harder. The ridge would ski beautifully most of the year,

    If that happened, I wonder if they would keep a snowcat shuttle at the top of the Flyer to shuttle guests up to the Summit Haus for events? That would keep a pretty good path packed in for hiking, unless there was a fresh snowfall with drifting .

    I think it is very likely that the Tram will be repaired and running as normal. That is a crucial piece of infrastructure.

    Carry on.
    Porsche has only ever made two real cars.....the 356 and the 911......right? lol

    Sure there were some fantastic vehicles with the logo worthy of praise (944, 928, come to mind)....but........I digress.

    Back on topic.....lol

    They would groom it since they need access to the telecommunications gear up there, and microwave repeaters.
    Jay would lose a bit of food revenue but save on 8-10 full time salaries, not having to make snow on upper northway vermonter. 4+ million is a lot of dough when you have none and everyone is owed money.
    The other lifts could use some love too. I'd give it a real hard look based on my view from 242

    Just a gut feeling? Seems to be an essential piece of equipment but nobody is working for free and Jay has no credit.

    Lots of wishcasting
