Q Burke Mountain Resort recognizes our season pass holders as ambassadors of the resort both on and off the mountain and let's just say - WE APPRECIATE YOU! Year after year you consistently dedicate the majority of your ski-time to our trails and for that, we thank you.
Let us take this opportunity to invite you to attend our Season Pass Holder Appreciation Weekend Saturday, February 7th and Sunday February 8th. Un-ironically, we have scheduled our Town Hall Meeting for Saturday, February 7th from 5:30-7:30pm in our Kingdom Cafe.
