The Mount Snow village has a base lodge, plenty of casual eateries and après ski, and the classic Clock Tower.
Mount Snow has beautiful groomed cruisers on the front side, nothing too steep or formidable – all with sweeping Vermont views. The North Face has steeper pitched trails that are short but sweet and served by a high speed quad. The Sunbrook area is South Facing with a few long fun cruisers and a couple of beefy bump runs that are popular on a spring ski day.
Mount Snow is a great family ski resort for a weekend or a steal away for a far less crowded mid week day. There’s tremendous history here too- dating back to Fountain Mountain, Mount Snow was hopping in the 60’s and 70s. Ask a few locals about the tropical theme base lodge back in the heyday.
