My home mountain, so I'm maybe biased but still realistic. Snow and grooming are truly the best in the east. Even with unfavorable weather the mountain operations crew always delivers world class conditions on the slopes. As for lifts, years of underinvestment by Intrawest has led to unreliable lifts the last few seasons. This seems like it... More

Best snowmaking and grooming on the east coast. Even with adverse weather they get the mountain into great shape so snow quality is rarely a problem. Foodservice in the lodge can be slow.... More

The first time I went to Stratton, I was greeted by a mountain ambassador who took my skis as I went up the stairs, welcomed me to Stratton and wished me a stellar day on the mountain. all of that and a smile too. It set the tome for the day and the entire trip. When I retire and move to the mountains, I want to make people feel good like that... More
