Burke Mountain, Vermont – U-Drive Trip 2024
The ski area has two main sections of terrain.
The “Lower Mountain” consists of mostly Beginner terrain and is accessed by a high-speed detachable quad chairlift. There is also a “Bunny Slope” accessed by a J-bar surface lift. A beginner carpet lift was installed in 2010 to make the learning progression easier for first time skiers. There are a couple of terrain parks and a beginner glade (Enchanted Forest) as well.
The “Upper Mountain” consists of Intermediate and Advanced terrain. Trails on the upper mountain are accessed via two lifts, a Leitner-Poma platter lift and a high-speed quad. Trails vary from wide open groomed runs (Upper/Lower Dipper, Upper/Lower Willoughby), to steep ungroomed trails (Doug’s Drop), to glades (Caveman, Throbulator, Jungle). The intermediate/expert East Bowl trail is considered to be a signature “old New England style” trail due to its long, narrow, winding nature.
