Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

Nestled in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, you will find (or discover) Burke Mountain. Known for its view of Willoughby Gap–Mount Pisgah to the east and Mount Hor to the west-skiers and riders will find classic Vermont style skiing across 270 acres of narrow, winding trails, steep pitches and acres of tree skiing. With an annual snowfall of 217 inches, Burke features a vertical rise of 2,011 ft., 50 trails and glades and three terrain parks for freestylers. Home to Burke Mountain Academy and now named as an official training and development site for the US Ski Team, you just may found yourself sharing a chair with an Olympic or soon-to-be Olympic skier training on some of the best terrain in New England.
