BURKE, Vt. (AP) - The new owner of Vermont's Burke Mountain Resort is going to increase snowmaking capacity by 50 percent to help the resort during winters when there is little snow.
The plan is to get up to 100 new snowmaking guns and a new compressor that will allow technicians to make more snow both early in the winter season and late.
Burke General Manager Tim McGuire tells the Caledonian Record it's a significant upgrade for the resort's snowmaking system.
Jay Peak President Bill Stenger, who bought Burke in May along with a business partner, says the snowmaking system improvements will be the initial focus of the new owners.
