Burke 3/29/14

Quick trip report:

In just a day or two, Burke has gone from mid-winter conditions to genuine spring conditions. Soft snow everywhere. The natural snow trails were still open. I suspect this will be the last weekend for those trails. Coverage on them was still good, although the mogul runs are getting some small bare spots here and there.

Crowds were light, even by Burke standards. You can tell that the season is truly winding down. The Mid-Burke Express chair had some empty chairs going up the hill - on a Saturday! The biggest line we encountered all day was no more than four or five chairs worth of people.

We skied until 5:00 PM and really enjoyed the extra hour. We stuck around for fireworks at 8:00 PM. It was a nice show, although not many people came out for it.
