Rory Burke Ski Tester Profile Image

Rory Burke


Rory Burke has a lot of experience on skis. While he grew up in Maryland he now calls Stowe, VT home, and has done so for quite some time. In the winter Rory spends his night operating a snow cat at Stowe Mountain Resort. In fact, he’s one of the most accomplished terrain park groomers in these parts and is a big reason why we have such excellent grooming here at Stowe. It’s safe to say Rory has toned down his skiing just a bit after a couple injuries and a marriage, but he still rips. We were psyched to have him as part of our ski test as he brought a valuable amount of experience and is just a fun guy to be around.

    1. Hi Tom!

      Rory forgot to fill in length tested during our 2018 test, but I can pretty much guarantee he was on the 185 cm length. I’ll try to get in touch with him to confirm, but I can’t imagine him testing the 177 cm and I don’t believe the Nordica reps brought the 193 cm to the test.
