Saskedena Six

The first rope tow in America was rigged at Suicide Six Ski Resort in 1934. Now this classic ski hill continues the tradition of classic skiing and kinship, with a new name in 2022 – Saskadena Six, and a new quad. This is a great hill for skiing with your family, less busy than Killington nearby or Okemo, homey and fun.

Owned by The Woodstock Inn, your winter holiday experience includes gracious lodging  at the 4-diamond Woodstock Inn, and skiing both alpine and Nordic.

The Alpine skiing at Saskadena is short but fun and a bit steep in places and pitches s- hence the previous name “suicide”. This ski hill also has a fun traditon as a local race hill. The skiing off the base to summit quad on well-pitched slopes is complimented by a cozy homey base lodge at the bottom at Saskadena Six.

Nordic skiing is just a short drive from downtown Woodstock, with miles of scenic cross-country trails, both groomed and tracked, at the Woodstock Inn Nordic Center where you can rent cross-country skis boots and poles. Even our non-Nordic-ski family really enjoyed gliding over snowy fields, wood bridges covered in snow and pretty forests with glistening white birch trees.

For après ski, there’s a spa, kids activities, and a big fireplace that dates back to the Rockefeller era here in the delightful town of Woodstock. The Woodstock Inn offers ski and stay packages. And there’s covered bridges leading to the historic hamlet of Woodstock to fun local shops and cafes. Be sure to explore where the wealthy Rockefeller family settled for their family retreats in winter and summer in the beautiful Green Mountains.
