Mount Snow Ski Resort
As one of Vermont's biggest ski areas, Mount Snow is a popular destination, particularly for intermediate skiers.
The frontside of the mountain is perfectly suited for progression, with gentle greens at the base and longer blues, greens and well-groomed blacks further up. The top-to-bottom Long John green is a popular route, whilst those looking for a bit more a challenge should head off to the North Face zone, for blacks and some tree skiing. Carinthia Mountain to the south of the ski area is entirely set aside for freestyle skiers and boarders, making this one of the East Coast's top resorts for those looking to hit the park.
There's a decent range of hotel and condo accommodation at the foot of the hill, including some big hotel resorts with great facilities and fantastic American hospitality. Getting here does involve an internal flight to Albany, followed by a 1.5 hour drive, or a long 3 hour drive from Boston.
