Today's Mountain Report
Updated Thu Jan 17th 7:04
Yesterday's snow squall was a nice surprise dropping a solid three inches here at Burke Mountain. It was snowing pretty hard at times and turns were getting softer as we grew closer to last chair. Traffic was light so there are still plenty of fresh surfaces to enjoy.
More snow is on it's way with 1 to 2 inches possible through the day tomorrow as we keep our eyes on the big snow event making it's way to the Northeast, winter storm Harper. Cross your fingers and keep those snow dances up as it's looking pretty promising Burke will be receiving at least a FOOT by Monday. Make those plans now and be sure to book your hotel room early as they are selling like hotcakes. Already have a room? Great.
