Stratton Mountain

The mountain (3936 feet/1200 meters) has a vertical drop of 2003 feet (611 meters) and 90 ski trails: 38 green, 28 blue, and 24 black, served by 16 ski lifts.

GPS units are issued to students (especially kids) in the ski schools so they can track their distance, speed and elevation, and as a safety measure to record their locations on the mountain. Other skiers can rent the GPS units as well.

Snowboarding is big at Stratton, and both riders and skiers are happy that snowboarders have their own parks with plenty of hips, tables, rails, pipes and half-pipes.

In fact, snowboarding was invented here in the early 1980s when Jake Carpenter snuck onto closed slopes to test and improve his first snowboard. (He went on to found Burton Snowboards.)
