Comments CommentsLucked out with a late March powder day. While central New Hampshire had some rain at the end of the storm yesterday, it appears Burke was spared, as the powder wasn't wet or sticky. Probably about 2-4" of powder.

Every trail was open and virtually all of the woods were as well. Seemed like the better snow was on the eastern side of the mountain.

The lower mountain complex was wall to wall groomed packed powder.

The main trails on the main mountain were groomed with packed powder. Middle Willoughby and middle Big Dipper were a little scraped by late afternoon, however the scraped portion of Big Dipper could be avoided by hopping on Little Dipper, which was still wall to wall packed powder.

Upper Warren's Way skied nicely all day, even with race practice taking place. Lower Warren's Way was a little choppy due to race practice and the pond skim, but Lower Fox's Folly was skiing nicely all the way to the end of the day.

East Bowl didn't appear to have been groomed last night, but was skiing well. Only thin cover I noted was at the top of the last drop; everything else was in good shape for this natural snow trail.

Lower quad appeared to be ski-on all day. Mid Burke Express had 2-3 minute lines until lunch time and initially after, but then was ski-on.

Was glad to get one last ride on the historic Pomalift before it's removed this summer. Fun, fast lift.

Cloudy skies throughout the day, except for the last run, when the sun and blue sky started to emerge. In hindsight, this worked out well, as the new powder never got sticky or choppy. Managed 34.8K vertical feet. Big mountain, good terrain, minimal crowding, very underrated.
