        I've never been there, but I would like to ski Burke based on what I
hear/read/whatever.  The problem with Burke from my perspective is
location.  It's not close enough to the ski areas I patronize to be a
convenient "alternative".  When I do head up that way, I drive the extra
mile to go to Jay which normally has a snowfall that is 50-150% greater and
only costs me $24/day (MRG Shareholder benefit).  If Burke had Jay's
snowfall, I would stop there for sure.
        If it's around next season, perhaps we can have a SkiVittle day there to
help it out.
