Downhill Skating on Burke

Burke downhill skateboard invasion. So… many… skaters.

If only street luge had half as many lugers as skaters that showed up on Burke. Props to local boy Norm Plante for pulling off an impressive 4th place against some incredible racers. He made it look easy. If you were on the hill skating, you’re probably in this gallery. Thanks to Andrea, my photographer, pit crew and biggest fan for snapping most of these. She is awesome.

There is another downhill skating event at Burke Mountain coming this August from Mike Girard’s organization: Emgee Events‬. This time it’s a freeride without the pressure and missed runs because of actual racing. If any of you skaters missed the action, here’s your chance to mob the hill.
