Ready, Set, Summer!

July 31, 2013 2:26pm events bikes home

Hi Burkies! Does anyone else feel like their summer has slipped away from them? The calendar says it is practically August, but up here at Burke we are hanging on to summertime and sunshine for as long as we can… (at least until Marge is ready to be fired up). In order for you to get the most out of the rest of your summer we have tons of fun events happening here at the mountain and we invite you to join in!

This Friday (August 2nd) marks the first night of our fRIDEay Night Race Series. If you’re feeling intimidated by the term “race series”, don’t be! This is open to all skill levels; if you can ride Jester, you can join in the fun! So join us every fRIDEay night for a fun race, awesome raffle prizes, mountain biking movies shown on the big screen in the Tamarack Grill and weekly “Man Can” beer specials. What’s a better way to start your weekend than surrounded by friends, biking and the best Blue Chips around?

If mountain biking isn’t your thing, remember that Scenic Chairlift Rides are free every Friday in the month of August!

Keep the ball rolling from Friday night! This Saturday (August 3rd) is Burke Mountain’s 5th Annual Bike n’ Brew. Tickets this year are $20 for Tasters, $5 for Non-Tasters and Children. Please remember that while we all love dogs here at Burke, dogs and beverages do not go together, please leave Fido at home. This year we’ve changed the schedule a bit. There will still be cold Vermont Brews flowing, but we’ve added some things and changed it up, take a look!
