Slope and Trail Report for Northeastern Vermont


Jay Peak Resort



It's hard to believe that winter is still 3 weeks away. Jay Peak’s been bundled up for a while now and we’re thrilled to be back on the hill again. In addition to the aggressive snowmaking taking place, we’ve received an additional inch this morning with another 1-3" expected tonight. Last weekend’s storm allowed us to open additional trails off the Jet including U.N., Haynes, and Willard.


Our snowmakers have been blasting Angel’s Wiggle and are moving along to Northway. Temperatures will remain low today with snow showers coming our way tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday.


For those just tuning in, we will be open 7 days a week starting tomorrow, WEDNESDAY DEC. 1st. Lift tickets can be purchased ONLINE in advance or at either of our customer service locations. Tickets for 12/01 and 12/02 are $59 for all ages. Lifts will open at 9am tomorrow and we’ll be running the Jet Triple, Taxi Quad, and Stateside Carpet as we did last weekend.


For all you Diehards, here is a friendly reminder that our uphill trails are closed until further notice. We are actively grooming with the Winch Cat to get ready for the season- Groomers and hikers don’t play well together. Thanks in advance.

Burke Mountain Resort

Updated Sat Nov 27, 2021


Winter is right around the corner and we can't wait!


Projected opening date for Burke Mountain is Saturday, Dec. 11th (weather permitting)....who will be first chair famous?   More details to come on that as we grow closer but first, a few things to keep in mind as you begin planning your skiing and riding days this winter:


- Social distancing is recommended whenever possible.


- Simple rule of thumb while indoors (vaccinated - mask optional; unvaccinated - mask required).  All Burke Mountain staff will be wearing masks indoors for their safety and yours.


- PLAN AHEAD.  We can't encourage this enough.  Lessons, equipment rentals, and indoor dining will be at a premium this season especially during peak times.  Lessons and equipment rentals should be made in advance at skiBurke.com to avoid any surprises.


- Burke Mountain is not an exception to the hiring and recruitment dilemma the rest of the nation is facing so please be kind, be patient, and most of all understanding to unforeseen circumstance as they arise this winter.  The best place to get current updates is always skiBurke.com.


Opening weekend lift tickets will be discounted and available to purchase online at skiBurke.com.  Purchase adult 1-day lift tickets for just $45/person and Junior/Senior lift tickets for $35/person.  Remember, opening weekend will include intermediate to advanced terrain only.  No beginner trails will be open to start.  We anticipate Upper Willoughby to Upper Bear Den to either Lower Warren's Way or Graham Slam as your route down from the summit.  More terrain will become available as temperatures allow.


LET IT SNOW!  We look forward to welcoming you back on the slopes (very) soon.
