If you can't change it, throw a party.
Despite all of our efforts to make the season continue into April, mother nature continues to serve up consecutive days of record summertime temperatures. Unfortunately, the snow does not react well to the heat, and due to this, we plan to have a few trails from the summit this weekend. Temperatures tonight and tomorrow will determine the trail count for Saturday, so stay tuned to www.skiburke.com
for updates. Trails and lifts at the Sherburne Base Lodge are closed for the season.
So we're thinking, what better time have a Hawaiian Beach Party? That's right, dig out your Hawaiian shirts, leis, grass skirts, coconut bras and join us as we embrace the sunshine. Wear your Hawaiian garb to the ticket window and it's a $25 lift ticket! Take a few runs, bask in the sun on the Mid Burke Express and then head to the Bear Den Lounge for a cold Corona, beach party music and some fun in the sun! The party continues with the Starline Rhythm Boys at 8pm, where one lucky winner will win a brand new pair of Dynastar skis!
We will shut down all operations Monday-Friday, March 26-30 with the hopes of opening one last weekend on March 31 and April 1 for skiing & riding and our annual Pond Skimming Celebration. In the event warm temperatures persist this could be our final weekend. After much consideration, we were unable to move Pond Skimming ahead to this weekend because the extreme temperatures made it impossible to form a pond with the loose snow.
