There are so many wrong assumptions made about Burke that it's hard to know where to begin debunking them. "It's too steep, there's no intermediate or beginner terrain, there's no snowmaking, it's too far away," etc. While some of us may say that a mountain can never be too steep, set that and other arguments aside and look at the facts: 70% of Burke's terrain is rated intermediate or beginner, 80% of the trails are covered by snowmaking (most of the system is just a couple of years old), and the Sherburne Lodge at Burke's base is only seven flat miles from I-91.
