after Northern Vermont got another 1.5 tto 3 feet of snow, Me and 2 friends headed up to Burke hoping we could find easily accessed powder skiing on fun terrain.
Welcome to Burke Mountain True North
Burke had received 16 inches of new snow in 2 days and we found lots of it left over. In there quite tight and sometimes challenging glades.
best ski school advertisement ever
and maybe one of the best trail signs ever
throbulator had some of the best cover of the day with very lightly tracked snow top to bottom.
I alway know how to find powder.
Erik can find it as well
the problem with Burke though is this. They only have 150 inches on the year while Stowe has 250 inches on the year. There be sharks in these woods. In some places if was basically the new snow on top of mix of granite,dirt, ice, logs, stumps, dirt and moss. At least the moss is slidely.
the views are great to Mount Washinton
and to Lake Willoughby and Lake Willoughby Notch
the only mountain in Vermont entirely serviced by high speed quads.
Diane has made huge leaps forwards this year.
despite the lack of of base. Sunshine, fresh snow, fast lifts,no crowds and just steep enough little hill will make anyones day.
