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. ... More

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.... More
