BURKE - Jay Peak Resort owners Bill Stenger and Ariel Quiros now own Burke Mountain Resort. The resort was purchased from Lubert Adler, a real estate investment company, on May 22 for an undisclosed amount.
Jay Peak is in the midst of massive expansion with new hotels, townhouses, restaurants, an indoor water park, and much more.
Burke Resort has been trying to expand for the past several years but has historically struggled. However, in recent years, business at the resort has improved, said Burke Resort General Manager Tim McGuire in an Express interview Thursday.

Wednesday, members of what would have been his senior class unveiled a large monument to him in front of the career center.
