Mount Snow, Vermont
Mount Snow has always been popular for skiers and riders, since 1955. With 80 trails and an amazing 20 lifts including the Bluebird Express - a base to summit high-speed six-person blue bubble chair, Mount Snow handles lots of skiers on its three-sided slopes. It is truly Mount Snowmaking with the most fan guns in North America at over 250 and 645 low energy guns.
Mount Snow has lots of mountain lodging - the most choice is the Mount Snow Grand Summit Hotel with an outdoor heated pool and a full-service NatureSpa and you can walk to the lifts, après ski at the Station Tap Room, shopping and dining in Mount Snow village with the classic Clock Tower.
Mount Snow has beautifully groomed cruisers on the front side, mellow terrain with sweeping Vermont views. The North Face has steeper pitched trails that are short but sweet and served by a high-speed quad. The Sunbrook area is South Facing with a few long fun cruisers and a couple of beefy bump runs that are popular on a spring ski day.
Mount Snow is a great family ski resort for a weekend or a steal away for a far less crowded midweek day. Carinthia Park is Mount Snow's entire mountain dedicated to terrain parks - 100 acres of jumps, rails and over 150 features with its own lifts.
Mount Snow has a tremendous history dating back to Fountain Mountain, Mount Snow was THE place to ski and be seen in the 60's and 70s. Ask a few locals about the tropical theme base lodge back in the heyday. Mount Snow is owned by Peak Resorts who also owns Attitash, Wildcat, Crotched Mountain in New Hampshire, and Jack Frost, Big Boulder and Hidden Valley in Pennsylvania's Poconos.
Nearby Mount Snow in West Dover is The Hermitage Club, a private ski club, and community on the ski area formerly known as Haystack.

Mt Snow has been my go-to for years. The main mountain has great rolling intermediate runs, but what I really love are the jumps and the halfpipe at Carinthia! Always an incredible time.
Mt. Snow is a good sized resort with enough wide trails and varied terrain to be enjoyable by different skill levels. It is a quaint town with good food and something for everyone.
The best place to snowboard in southern vermont! Mt snow offers terrain for all levels and is very easy to get to from all parts of new england. Plus, carithia offers the best park riding on the east coast!
Great mountain for the entire family. We have season passes and close enough to CT to make it a good regular there and back is completely do able. Also plenty of inns and hotels at a reasonable price during winter months.
I'm familiar with the mountain and I like the varied terrain, snow making could be better.
Mount Snow has a great park system and good skiing. There is something for everyone. They also do a good job taking care of the trails. There are also great resturants in the area. People are very friendly too. What it lacks is a nightlife.
Great resort easily accessible off the highway after a short drive. First real mountain you get to in Vermont. Everything pretty easy to figure out and most of the mountain feeds to one or two spots which is great for families.
Mount Snow is my absolute favorite place out of all the options in the northeast. I live just a few towns over so it doesn't take me long to get there. I must say though, for people traveling from places further away, there's so many fantastic hotels and restaurants all over the area. Mount Snow staff has been 100% professional and fun, positive people every time I've visited. I can't say it's the only place I go, but it's definitely my #1 choice! There's room for people of all skill levels and I've yet to come across any problems with staff or other people shredding the mountain. If you visit Mount Snow, be sure to travel a little northwest and eat at "Honeypie" you won't be disappointed!!
It's a very well organized and taken care of, with helpful friendly staff and has some really sweet woods riding and terrain park. on top of it all their snow making system is amazing especially starting this year
Mount Snow has great terrain for all ability levels. There are awesome learning areas at the Discovery Center, Sundance and Carinthia. Blue trails like Exhibition or Ego Alley down the front,
