Mount Snow operates in the southern-most portion of the Green Mountain National Forest, which is the closest area of National Forest Service land to southern New England, eastern New York and New Jersey.  This means one of the country’s finest examples of natural beauty, forever preserved and protected for your use, is not far from where you live.  And Family Camp at Mount Snow is your opportunity to enjoy this resource at your own speed with guided hikes, guided mountain bike tours and educational opportunities.  Mount Snow is a big place and there’s a lot to explore.  Regardless of your transportation, on foot or on a bike, you’ll find babbling brooks, wildflowers, scenic overlooks, an abundance of wildlife including a host of different species of birds, and much more.  All of this, right outside the door of your modern accommodations.

FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE. WORRY FREE.

Every day during your Camp experience we have a schedule of activities planned for you that include fun things to do at the resort as well as trips to nearby lakes and other excursions. But just because it’s scheduled doesn’t mean you need to participate. This is your vacation that you chose to go on, so why wouldn’t you be able to choose the things you do? There will always be staff available to help customize your experience. Want to go golfing? Visit the spa? Check out some of the historic landmarks in the area? No problem. We’re here to help. Or if you just want to pull up some Adirondack chairs at the base of the mountain and enjoy the Vermont air with your family, that’s an activity all on its own.  

BIKES FOR EVERYONE

bikes for everyone

Bicycling is in our DNA here at Mount Snow, and we want you to experience this great sport with the best possible equipment. That’s why at the beginning of the week we fit every camper, kids and adults, with mountain bikes. These self-propelled “machines” will act as your primary mode of transportation around Camp during your stay. Our experienced guides will evaluate everyone’s skill level and customize tours of our trail system based upon how comfortable each person is on a bike, and how adventurous you’d like to be. The resort and surrounding area offer world-class road rides, off-road cross country trails and lift served downhill terrain including the East’s longest introductory downhill mountain bike trail.
