Logo   Mount Snow Ski Resort, Vermont
Because it's closest to the metropolitan centers of Boston, Hartford, Providence, and New York City, Mount Snow is one of Vermont's largest and most popular ski resorts.



Mount Snow is on Vermont Route 100 in West Dover VT, 30 miles (48 km) west of I-91 (map).

A resort this big has all the facilities: nursery, child care, kids' programs, bars, cafeteria, restaurants, equipment rentals, a great ski school, and many miles of cross-country trails, not to mention 135 million gallons of lake capacity for snowmaking. Let Mother Nature go dry, it doesn't matter—so long as there is cold, there will be snow here.

Mount Snow

Mount Snow (3580 feet/1091 meters) has a vertical drop of 1700 feet (518 meters), four interconnected ski areas boasting a total of 145 ski trails (23 green, 90 blue, 32 black) totalling 48 miles, 23 lifts including a ski-on gondola, and 85% snowmaking capability.

Three of the four ski areas are great for beginners and intermediate skiers, and the North Face is challenging enough for black-diamond lovers.

Snowboarders enjoy four terrain parks and a superpipe.

It's crowded, yes, because it's close to the cities, and is a good mountain for beginners and intermediate skiers, but it's also got a lot of variety and activities.

Come mid-week to avoid the weekend crowds. On weekends, hit the slopes early and get in some good runs, rest when the crowds arrive, and get some more runs in later in the day.
