Don’t Jay Burke


It was a good winter at Burke Mountain Resort:  early opening thanks to increased snowmaking, late closing due to high spring snowfall, in between a Burke Mountain Academy student became a world champion.  Personally, my husband and I made even more wonderful friends and fell more in love with the community.

I remain extremely guarded about the development hurtling towards Burke with its purchase by Jay Peak.  Yes, I know – progress, growth, security — these could and should be good things for locals and for guests, for ski and bike seasons.  I do get it and am admittedly looking forward to some of the updates.  But I can only hope change proceeds in appropriate scale and character, specific and authentic to what makes Burke. . . Burke.  This winter I have been very mindful to soak up the mountain’s rich atmosphere and personality before it all starts to evolve, in particular anticipating the construction site at the base of the Mid-Burke Express quad next winter.  There is irony, poignancy and comfort in the vintage image posted here.

A sincere thank you to everyone who keeps the ski and bike trails running and town amazingly pleasant and special!

Ski The East Freeride Tour: Jay Peak, VT

Jay Peak hosted the fourth and final stop on the 2013 Ski The East Freeride Tour.  A two-day event, I was able to watch some of the women run on Saturday (and disappointed I could not make it back for the more “extreme” finals on Sunday).  This was my first visit to one of these contests and I loved it – a positive feeling to the entire production and authentic freeride style inspiration everywhere.  I was impressed by the relative range of ages and abilities – as well as  female participation – and credit Ski The East with creating an inclusionary environment – such a great grassroots way to grow freeride exposure.  I look forward to following the tour next winter. . .
