With every inch of its 2011’ of vertical, Burke Mountain Resort believes in all that made Vermont skiing famous. So we’ve foregone wider, flatter trails, and the wider, flatter skiers they cater to, for trails and glades that respect the mountain’s natural contours. And we don’t rate tough blues as blacks or anything close to a green as a blue.
Up North, you earn it. Not everybody gets a trophy, a mentality we observed watching more than 50 Olympians learn to be great at the world-renowned Burke Mountain Academy. But we want to exclude no one.
So if you can’t ski or ride any of our 50 trails or 100+ acres of glades, we’ll teach you. After all, we believe everyone should, at least once, experience what Vermont skiing and riding–the True North experience–was all about. And, in one place, at least, still is.
