Today's Mountain Report
Updated Tue Mar 20th 6:59
Today we allegedly welcome the next season, Spring, on the calendar but as we gaze at Burke Mountain, you’ll see nothing that even closely resembles butterflies and budding trees, and that’s just fine with us. Instead, we celebrate and welcome another bluebird day with temperatures creeping slightly warmer and climbing into the mid-twenties under gorgeous blue skies.
It’s going to be a great day to cruise the groomers which are sporting fresh corduroy: Powderhorn, Wilderness, Carriage Road, Upper Dipper, Big Dipper, Upper/Lower Warren’s Way, Lower Fox’s Folly, Lower Bear Den, The Shoot, Upper/Lower Willoughby, High Meadows Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill, Carter Country and Dashney Mile.
BMA will be hosting two Super G training sessions, the first one kicks off today, 3/20 and runs through Thursday 3/22 on Big Dipper. This being said, Big Dipper is closed as well as the middle cross sections of Deer Run, until training is complete at 11 am, all three days.
Skiers and riders will enjoy an early lift load as a result on Mid Burke Express from 8am-4pm today through Thursday. The Sherburne Express and J-bar will run their normal times of 9am-4pm. We’ll see this same training schedule next week, with Big Dipper closed Wednesday, 3/28 and Thursday, 3/29.
Today is Silver Streaker Tuesday, which means, all adults ages 55 + can ski/ride for just $35 dollars all day. All ticket sales are available for purchase out of the Sherburne Base Lodge guest services office.
