Today's Mountain Report
Updated Wed Mar 22nd 6:47
It's easy to simply equate early spring in Vermont with muddy roads and sugaring season, but here at Burke Mountain, early spring means big temperature swings! We've been seeing overnight lows in the teens, with daytime highs in the upper 30s. This freeze/thaw cycle makes for some interesting surface conditions, but thanks to our groomers and mountain ops team, surfaces are continuing to hold up well around the mountain and 100% of our trails remain open.
Today we'll see a high of 43° / low of 30° at the base and high of 33° / low of 27° at the summit. Summit winds are WSW at 15-30 mph, and we'll see pockets of sunshine throughout the day. We may actually see some light snow into Thursday as well, and we have eyes on more snow coming through this weekend.
All this to say - if you can handle the variable terrain and shifting temps on the mountain, you'll be rewarded with some of the best late-season skiing all around. Plus, it's Wicked Wednesday, so grab a few pals to purchase 3 Wednesday lift tickets for the price of 1. That's just $15 each! Head on over to our Day Tickets page to get the details.
Please use caution as unmarked hazards and variable conditions do exist on natural terrain. Be aware as surface conditions may change throughout the day. Always ski & ride in control. It is your responsibility to know the code.
The Sherburne Express, Mid Burke Express, J Bar and Magic Carpet will load today from 9am-4pm.
Groomed terrain today includes Carriage Road, McHarg's Cutoff, Upper Dipper, Big Dipper, Open Slope, Little Dipper, Upper Fox's Folly, Graham Slam, Upper Bear Den, Lower Bear Den, The Shoot, Upper Willoughby, Lower Willoughby, High Meadows Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill, Dashney Mile and Carter Country.
The FIS Men's Slalom race will be taking place on Upper and Lower Warren's Way today - look to your right as you ride the Mid Burke Express to watch the incredible athletes! The Mid Burke Lodge will be bustling with racers, so if you'd like a little more space to boot up you may want to get ready for the day in the Day Lodge of the hotel.
If you've been thinking about revamping items in your winter kit (or your entire kit), now is the time to stop into Vertical Drop Retail Shop, located on the second floor of the Burke Hotel and shop their End of Winter Sale!
