More than three years have passed since federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) agents raided Burke Mountain and Jay Peak ski resorts in the Northeast Kingdom, as part of a property seizure in what officials would describe as the biggest fraud case in Vermont history.

And while most of those assets, including the two ski resorts in Burke and Jay, and many other real estate and cash holdings have been officially turned over to the federal receivership in charge of the assets by former owner Ariel Quiros, the receivership continues to work to aid defrauded immigrant investors and to position both ski properties for eventual sale.
