At least half of the mountain is roped off and not skiable. Snow making equipment is only used one trail at a time, if at all. Again, for the second winter in a row, absolutely no snow making or preparing for the winter took place until 4 or 5 days before the beginning of Christmas break. Christmas break was a... More

We have skied this mountain for 25 years and LOVE it. Great family mountain but also enough for advanced skiers not to be board. It’s a smaller mounting with short lift lines - one of its best features. We’ve rented, owned and rented here. Very excited to be going back up this February. If you can rent Burkeside or Powderhorn... More

My family and I just had our worst skiing experience ever. Skiing at Burke Mountain this past week reminded me of how we used to ski at Watatic Mountain back in the early 70s: if Mother Nature supplied the mountain with snow, conditions could be great. But if there isn't any natural snow, you are simply out of luck. I... More

Burke failed to make sufficient snow at the outset of the 2013/2014 ski season. The mountain was in really rough shape until there was an abundance of natural snow during the second half of the season. You would think that they would learn from their mistake. Guess again... Here we are at the 2014/2015 season. Burke got lucky with some... More

We love Burke. As a beginner skier I had a great time learning on the lower mountain, and started discovering the upper mountain at the end of last season. My husband is an excellent skier and finds the mountain awesome and fun. My son will be starting the race program this winter, so we will be there all the time.... More

The chairlift runs at weekends in the summer months - great trails at the top of it, some technical and some just flowing.

Burke is off the beaten path and isn't over commercialized like a lot of ski resorts. Skiing was very affordable when we went on Sunday afternoon ($25 half-day tickets). One lift looked pretty new and lines were short on both of the lifts we used. Burke has some great, steep intermediate cruisers. Trails were well groomed, which was a pleasant... More

There were a lot of kids but otherwise no lines. The East Bowl is a run not to be missed. Staff was friendly and helpful.

My family visited Burke for a day of skiing and were not disappointed. The mountain is challenging, the conditions were great and the staff were outstanding. It was a holiday weekend and the lines were not long. One of my favorite things was that there were staff managing the lift lines to be sure lifts were full and that the... More

Burke is a hard place to review. There are some great things to say and some not good things to say. It really depends on what your preferences are. The Good: 1) Lift lines? What are those? 2) For a lesser known ski area, the vertical drop is quite respectable. Be aware, however, that Burke is really two ski areas... More
