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

Have you ever boarded in Europe? enjoyed it? then I suggest avoid Burke mountain. We visited over the 2013/14 Christmas period and didn't clock the sheet of A4 next to the till that basically said most of the mountain was closed. The five trails they claimed to be open would be considered one run in European resorts and it was... More

If you're traveling from MA or CT and booking a stay, be aware that Burke is not what it was last year or what it was any other year for that matter. If you have young kids and need to spend the day with them anyway, you will be fine. Till now I've bit my tongue, just hoping things would... More

Jester trail is the best downhill I've ever done!!! It is smooth, but has high and curvy embankments and is crazy fun. The lift ticket was only $20.

Burke mountain is one of my favourite mountains to go snowboarding when I visit Vermont. It is never too busy and the trails are for all levels. Most of the trails are groomed although some aren't at times, which can be tricky but fun. The staff is great, friendly and always really helpful. The general feel I get from Burke... More
