Burke, VT is a great little town nestled in the snow belt. That's right! All those Canadian storms blow through Burke and dump tons of snow, right on this beautifully secluded village. The fresh powder is to die for and the trials range from intermediate to expert. There are also some great beginner trails too; great for kids or beginner skiers.
Another perk about the Burke house is the ski on/off conditions. Leave your ski bags behind, strap on your boots and head to the lift. Just a few feet from your front door. The home is cozy with a fireplace and comfortable couches and beds. The house is perfect for a large family or multiple families due to the split level, with a full bathroom on each level. A washer and dryer unit is also available and a working dishwasher (who wants to wash dishes while on vacation).
Overall, my experience at Burke was wonderful. The skiing and the ability to come in and warm up with cup of hot cocoa at the end of the day was ideal. No waiting in parking lots to make a long two hour trek home. A hot shower and warmth next to a fire place was just steps away! I can't wait to book my next trip for 2014!
