EAST BURKE, Vermont ??” New for the 2005-2006 season will be the expansion and upgrade of the snowmaking system at Burke. The new energy efficient pumps will allow Burke to cover more trails in less time. Guests will enjoy more open trail coverage earlier in the season.

The Sherburne double chair, located at the Base area, will be replaced with a high-speed detachable quad, which means more time on the hill. “Now, Burke Mountain skiers and riders will be able to enjoy the same speed and comfort level that we provide to resorts like Aspen, Jackson Hole and Breckenridge,” says Rick Spears, President of Leitner-Poma North America.

The first phase of the Powderhorn Condominium Complex expansion, which began in earnest November 2004, is complete and all the units have been sold. Construction of the final four units in the complex, offering slope side ski-in ski-out convenience, has already begun.
