Today's Mountain Report
Updated Sun Mar 24th 7:05
Pinch yourself because no, you're not dreaming. Hopefully you were here ripping through knee deep powder turns for most of yesterday followed by an incredible starry, full moon sky. Now today, we're looking at highs climbing in to the mid-forties under mainly sunny skies for most of the day. Weekend's don't get much better.
It's a perfect day for pond skimming with registration starting sharply at 10am in the Mid Burke Lodge. 18+ can register, $20/per person. Registration closes at 11am or when we hit 50 competitors, whichever happens first. If you're here for the festivities, awesome! Head on up to the Burke Mountain Academy timing shack for the Sierra Nevada beer garden and some yummy burgers on the grill. Pond Skim kicks off at 12noon on Lower Warren's Way. Surf's Up!
As for skiing and riding, well, surface conditions will continue to be a bundle of joy as we ski & ride on 100% open terrain. The grooming team was on the hill last night laying down fresh corduroy on the following: Powderhorn, Carriage Road, Lift Line, Mountain Marsh, McHarg's cut-off, Dipper Doodle, Deer Run, Upper/Big Dipper, Open Slope, Little Dipper, Upper/Lower Warren's Way, Upper/Lower Fox's Folly, Upper/Lower Bear Den, The Shoot, Upper/Lower Willoughby, High Meadows Pass, Binney Lane, Bunker Hill, Carter Country, Dashney Mile, and Progression Park.
The Sherburne and Mid Burke Express will load at their normal time from 9am-4pm. Day tickets can be purchased in the Sherburne Base Lodge guest services office or in the Vertical Drop Retail store located in the west wing on the second floor.
Be sure to make your way down to the Vertical Drop or Trailside retail stores to check out their huge end of season sale on almost everything in the store. From goggles to gloves, logo apparel to everything in between, their are sale items ranging from 20-50% off.
If you weren't able to get here this weekend no worries as the week ahead is looking stellar. Now is the time to burn those winter vacation days and come see what Burke is like midweek, (spoiler alert, feels like your very own private resort). Starting today, two people can ski/ride and stay in a studio suite from just $143/night which includes your lift tickets. Visit our deal page here and start making your plans to join us as we begin to wrap up one of the longest winter seasons in recent memory.
Thanks for reading, see you on the slopes.
