Burke Mountain was awarded two awards recently at the National Ski Areas Association National Conference in San Antonio, Texas. The first, a Sustainable Slopes Grant, was awarded to Burke Mountain for its green efforts, including the installation of our new wind turbine last summer and our new composting program that was implemented this winter in partnership with the Highfields Center for Composting. The mountain was awarded with a prize of 5 new high efficiency HKD snow guns and an energy audit with Bendle Group. We would like to thank all of our guests and employees that supported our composting program in the Sherburne Base Lodge this winter and our supporters of the wind turbine! Read full press release>
We were also selected for the NSAA Marketing Award for Best Traditional Media. Our marketing team submitted an application to the NSAA judging panel with samples of our new marketing efforts during this past season and won the award over 19 other North American Resort finalists. Thanks again to all our employees and guests who welcomed our new branding efforts over the past two seasons!
