I came across this in today's Globe and thought I'd share:
I'm new to skiing and have never been to Burke, but did go to Jay in January 2012 and had an absolute blast (went to a couple places for the 2010/2011 season). I've heard good things about the "character" of Burke, but don't really know what that means...
In any event, Jay is in expansion/development mode, and the resort was wonderful. If Burke does have character and a quaint feel, I'm curious how the two will do paired up. Per the article, Jay is not making any promises about renovations, etc. to Burke, which I figure is a good sign.
Any thoughts? I think industry consolidation can be both good and bad. I don't know enough about either mountain to really have an opinion on this transaction, but I'm sure others here can provide their feedback, be they local or otherwise.
