Today's Mountain Report
Updated Thu Feb 22nd 8:27
Update 8:15am: Little Dipper has been groomed for today. Ropes will be dropping soon when all other east side trails open!
Winter welcome back! We missed you but did enjoy some awesome sunshine and spring skiing yesterday. After weathering a 50 degree swing in temperature the last 24 hours, our grooming team is still on the slopes tilling the wet surfaces that froze overnight. Snow is best groomed when it’s solid, not moist, so we expect all groomed terrain to be in good shape as we kick things off on this Thursday morning. There will be a delay on opening all east side trails until the grooming team is finished working their magic. We expect those trails to open up around 11am.
Outside of the grooming delay we expect this to be a relatively calm wintry weather day with a chance of snow showers later this afternoon. Our eye remains on these next two fronts moving in starting tomorrow, Friday, with 1-3 inches possible and in the forecast. Temperatures will hover in the mid-thirties most of the weekend warming up a bit on Sunday with highs climbing near 40 degrees.
The Mid Burke and Sherburne Express are expected to load on time from 9am-4pm servicing 17 trails. Groomers include: Carriage Road, Upper Dipper, Big Dipper, Open Slope, Little Dipper, Lower Fox’s Folly, Lower Bear Den, The Shoot, Upper/Lower Warren’s Way, Upper/Lower Willoughby, High Meadows Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill, Carter Country, and Dashney Mile.
All ticket sales are in the Sherburne Base Lodge guest services office including all Liftopia redemptions.
Free ski movies and board games will be playing in the Witherell room this afternoon with our weekly Trivia series in the View Pub starting at 6:30. Tomorrow, join us for a quick story hour from 10-11am in the cozy First 13 room adjacent from the View Pub. Friday night is parent’s night off! Drop off the kids for dinner and a movie in the Witherell Room from 5-8pm and head down to the Tamarack for free live music featuring Copilot, little bit of funk, a smidge of jazz, a dollop of rock, jam sensibilities, and just enough groove to get your booty moving. From the Hotel, step outside tomorrow around 8pm to watch the Burke Mountain Community Torch light Parade as they make their way down Warren’s Way. As always, Saturday the Bear Den will host après ski featuring live music from Seth Yacovone starting at 3pm. Check out a complete listing of everything happening at Burke this weekend here.
