In May of 2012, the partnership responsible for the $300+ million revitalization at Jay Peak purchased Burke Mountain and a new vision came into focus; one that included bringing to Burke the same success that Jay Peak had realized over the last six years. And as of September 2016 this vision has started to become a reality with the opening of the new Burke Hotel and Conference Center.
The new facility will offer guests 116 suites, a restaurant and pub, a cafe, and conference and meeting spaces, outdoor heated pool and hot tub, fitness center and shopping, the goal being to let those outside of the Northeast Kingdom know what the locals have for more than 60 years: that Burke Mountain offers all takers boundless adventure. Now there will just be a place to stay, eat, drink, have a conference, and get married all right at the base of one of Vermont’s most secluded mountain havens.
Of course there are some things that won’t change. Winter will still bring close to 300 inches of snow to play in. Summer will open the swimming holes, mountain bike trails and hiking routes. And fall’s inferno will always bring its fire of crimson and saffron to the surrounding mountainsides.
