Full review

What's not to like? Burke's tree skiing is a legitimate warm-up for Jay, Smuggs, and Stowe. Nothing here will cost you much and, a crowd consists of somebody on most of the chairs. Nothing fancy, 1 fixed grip CTEC quad for a primary chair which, I'm guessing, covers 1500 or more vertical feet and, a great hill to ski on. I didn't go down to the beginner area below mid-Burke but am guessing it would meet anyone's needs. I see there aren't a whole lot of reviews on Burke and see some suspect remarks in the few that have been written. There's a reason for that. This place belongs to Vermonters and those in the know and, why spill the beans? Its way too long of a drive and you should probably stay away.
