We are halfway through the week already and what a happy hump day it is. The forecast is looking pretty good with 1-3 inches possible, two of which are already on the ground this AM. Not to fear, if Mother Nature doesn’t deliver, our snowmaking team is on fi-ya and making a TON of snow on Big Dipper. Our park crew is pushing the massive snowmaking piles on Dashney Mile and we look forward to that trails debut by the weekend. Speaking of the weekend, have you looked at the extended forecast? Highs near 40 are expected for Saturday which would make for some excellent soft turns. But enough about the future, let’s get back to today.
Today, and every non-holiday Wednesday’s are the best deal of the week where three people can ski/ride for the price of one. That’s only $23/per person. So stop daydreaming and make the slopes of Burke Mountain your reality today.
Temperatures are on the warmer side reaching in the mid-twenties by this afternoon. Add some snow to that and yes, happy Wednesday indeed.
Groomed trails for today include: Lower Fox’s Folly, Lower Bear Den, Upper Willoughby, High Meadows Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill and Carter Country. Lifts will spin from 9am-4pm with all ticket sales available for purchase at the Sherburne Base Lodge guest services office.
In addition to the great temperatures and debut of our mile long terrain park this weekend, we also have some awesome live music on deck for Saturday. Megan Jean and the KFB, or Klay Family Band, arrange a demented blend of Americana, punk, dance, and the avant-garde that they've taken to describing as, "a metal band, if it was 1927." Inventive percussion, electrified banjo, and a voice like the Devil Herself have earned Megan Jean and the KFB a dedicated following all over the East Coast. Come see them live this Saturday from 3-6pm for after ski après in the Bear Den at Mid Burke.
Enjoy the day – we’ll see you on the slopes.
