Amazing in mid to late season. A classic. Great fast new lift. Sadly changing for the worse.

Wait for the season to develop unless they really expand their snow making. It will be well worth the wait. We go in March and it's always great. The snow making is weak in the... read more

Wait for the season to develop unless they really expand their snow making. It will be well worth the wait. We go in March and it's always great. The snow making is weak in the early season but when they do finally get to it and the natural snow finally comes this mountain is simply amazing. The terrain is challenging,... More

We were at Burke Mountain for a Snowboarding Event and I personally was astounded by the service and staff that work there. We left something behind and Jolene Davis went way outside her call of duty to find our lost helmets and get them back to us. She even arranged to have them hand delivered to Smugglers Notch so we...

I am in total agreement with the last reviewer. My sentiments on leaving Burke were plain sad. This could be a very nice family mountain. The other reviews (albeit 5 years old) suggest it was at one time. Unfortunately, our experience was severely disappointing. We know the pitfalls of Xmas skiing on the East coast. The weather doesn't always cooperate.... More

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
