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!

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...

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.

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,
Very Good!

Southern Vermont is the closest area with good vertical and decent slopes. Mt. Snow has become a bit too crowded for me at times.

Mt. Snow does an outstanding job of grooming its slopes, and for the intermediate skiiers in our family, it's a favorite destination.

4 sided mountain, great for following the sun for great snow conditions. Cozy lodges and base village with shops. Fast lift lines. Great snow conditions
