Why you should visit Burke Mountain Resort

Northeast Vermont’s Burke Mountain Resort prides itself on its location in the “last little corner of Vermont”, blessed with 260 skiable acres, a vertical drop of 2,011 feet from a 3,267-foot summit elevation and uncrowded lift lines.

The resort’s runs cater to beginners and advanced skiers and boarders with two separate areas: the Lower Mountain where the bunny hill is, and the Upper Mountain where intermediate and advanced skiers head.

Each ski area has its own day lodge: the Sherbourne Lodge on Lower Mountain contains the ski and snowboard rental shop, dining options and a retail store, while the Upper Mountain has the mid-Burke Lodge, with a cafeteria and bar. The Burke Snowsports School has private and group lessons and specialized clinics. There is no night skiing, but the Dashney Nordic Center does offer guided cross-country skiing on full-moon nights.

There is also ski-in/ski-out lodging at the Burke Mountain Hotel
