The season is back in effect and we were able to open the park much earlier than ever. Although we didn't have ideal temperatures to make a substantial amount of snow, we were still able to build a full run of features from top to bottom in record time. Some brand new features have made their debut in the park, including a 27ft fat snowmaking tube, a 16ft A-frame box, and 16ft flat box. The trail is designed to maintain a fun flow with many rollers and berms. The new boxes are designed specifically for beginners and is perfect to learn on. Here is the list of features from top to bottom:

We are looking forward to a great weekend, coming off one the strongest opening weekends Burke has had. For those of you not lucky enough to make it up last weekend the conditions were great. In the month of November alone, we have pumped just under half the amount of water for snowmaking that we pump in a typical SEASON. The amount of snow made with our new system is unprecedented and we have heard the approval from our customers. In talking with our guest and season pass holders, I have been told that they feel this is by far the best early season conditions they have ever seen. We need to thank our new ownership group and Burke Mountain Academy for the new snowmaking system along with our snowmaking crew who worked a week straight, 24 hours a day, the last week of November! Great Job!
