Burke Mountain Community Torchlight Parade
December 30, 2017 | 8:00 PM
The Torchlight Parade, a popular tradition from years’ past back, thanks to a dedicated group of expert skiers and local community members from Burke Mountain Academy and Burke Mountain! On Saturday Dec. 30 at 8:00pm, step outside and take a peek at Warren's Way (aka the Training Hill), where a small group of expert skiers and riders will be lighting up the night sky with a torch-lit descent.
Following the torchlight parade, stop in for a bite and a beverage with some of Burke’s best in the hotel at The View Pub, Willoughby’s Restaurant, or make your way down to the base lodge to the Tamarack Pub & Grille! For more information about the 12/30 torchlight parade, contact Vivian Buckley via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
