- We had a great week between christmas and new year, hired a house next to the meadows so could ski right from the door. Lessons were relaxed and fun for the beginners in our party and the lower slopes were challenging enough for new skiers to earn their stripes [sic]. – andrewsmith, OnTheSnow.com
- Burke also does an excellent job with its groomed terrain. Cruisers like Dippers and Willoughby are outstanding for their snow quality, exciting rolling terrain, and great views of northern Vermont. – SkiEast11, OnTheSnow.com
