Today's Mountain Report
Updated Sat Feb 25th 13:50
**UPDATE: Fox's Folly is now closed however Sasquatch and Marshland are open after further inspection ** No face mask or winter jacket for that matter will be needed today as temps reach almost 60 degrees; then BOOF, some kinda something is arriving overnight. During the next 24 hours we'll see a 40 degree swing on the thermometer as the mixed bag starts to drop sometime this evening. It will start as rain and then change over as temps drop with a chance of accumulation Sunday morning. As we look ahead, the extended forecast looks "normal" again as we keep a close eye on next weekend, Sunday, 3/5 -Tuesday, 3/7 which is shaping up to be our next 6+ storm. Winter is certainly not over yet, just another warm day and soft surfaces to enjoy. Ropes are up on all of the glades today to preserve the snowpack (which is still in good shape we might add), so skiers and riders will enjoy lapping the 34 open trails serviced by our two high speed quads Sherburne & Mid Burke Express which spin daily from 9am-4pm. REMINDER: Tomorrow, Sunday, 2/26 there is an early lift load of 8:30am to support the U12 race on Warren's Way. 17 trails have been smoothed out overnight including Carriage Road, Upper/Big/Little Dipper, Open Slope, Lower Warren's, Upper/Lower Foxes, Lower Bear Den, Upper/Lower Willoughby, High Meadows Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill, Carter Country, Dashney Mile, and The Shoot. We've had so much fun this past week and are grateful for all the skiers and riders that came to visit, so as a big thank you (and come again) we're opening up our NEK Sunday and Military ski-free deals tomorrow, Sunday, 2/26. Anyone can ski a half day tomorrow, beginning at 12:15 for just $25.00 and active military men/women and their immediate families ski free. Join us for after ski apres in the Bear Den from 3-6pm with the Starline Rhythm Boys followed by the Celebrate Burke Gala at 7pm in the Hotel Ballroom featuring the Wicked Smart Horn Band and special guest 2x Olympian and US Ski Team President Tiger Shaw. Tickets are available for purchase at the door. Tomorrow we kick off Vermont Cider Week with Ciderfest in the Day Lodge featuring 10 of Vermont's finest cider-makers from all over the state.
