Peak Pass: Winter 2016-2017 welcomes in our greatest season pass offering yet, the Peak Pass. The new Peak Pass features a total of six pass options valid at seven different mountain locations across four states in the Northeast. Resorts include Mount Snow; Attitash, Wildcat and Crotched Mountains in New Hampshire; Hunter Mountain in New York; and Jack Frost and Big Boulder in Pennsylvania. 

The top-level Explorer Pass features access to unlimited skiing and riding starting at $599 for youth ages seven to 17, and only $799 for adults. Along with unlimited access to seven resorts, the Explorer pass features top-level benefits, including retail discounts and access to summer festivals. 

Other passes include the Drifter Pass, priced at $399 for 18-29 year olds; the Ranger Pass at $699 (all ages), featuring 11 blacked out holiday dates; the Traveler Pass at $499 (all ages) that offers midweek-only skiing and riding; and the Scout Pass at just $60 for seven-resort access for children ages six and under.


Brushback Work: While last winter was less than ideal in terms of snowpack on the East Coast, there was a silver lining to the drier spring we had, as it allowed our trail crew earlier-than-normal access to the middle and upper mountain. The guys have used this extra time for extensive brushback work including mowing, trimming and branch collection, which will pay off this winter in the form of better access to powdery tree skiing runs once the snow starts to fly. Want to give it a try? Let us set you up with one of our world-class instructors for a day of private lessons, which will include showing you around their favorite secret stashes.


Proximity to Metro Areas: Whoever said that it’s about the journey, not the destination, obviously never drove Route 91 with three over-eager kids in the backseat constantly asking “are we there yet.” Mount Snow is Vermont’s closest big mountain resort for those traveling from the metro areas of Boston, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island, allowing for less time in the car and more time enjoying your vacation. Why drive one, two, or even four additional hours that could instead be spent relaxing with family and friends as you rest up for the days of skiing and snowboarding ahead.


Eating and Drinking: While we’re big fans of hitting the slopes, we’re also proud of the après-ski reputation we’ve built up over the years. Whether it’s Bud Light Reggaefest, Sink or Skim Pond Skimming, College Week, dancing with Bruce Jaques at Cuzzins, or just grabbing a few beers at The Tap Room or any of our other on-mountain establishments, we’ve worked hard to make sure the après-ski scene is one that we can be proud to offer our guests, and one that we ourselves would want to (and often do) participate in.


Carinthia Parks: The largest area of freestyle terrain east of the Rockies is home to nine different terrain parks with nearly 150 features spread throughout. Carinthia is a breeding ground for some of the best athletes in snowsports thanks in large part to “progression by design.” This initiative is aimed at getting more people, young and old, into the park by having extra-small features all the way up to extra-large. Inferno (XL features) is the only terrain park on the planet to have hosted both a Winter X Games and Winter Dew Tour. Recently ranked by TransWorld SNOWboarding Magazine as #1 in the East and #6 in North America, Carinthia is home to annual large-scale terrain park events like Red Bull All-Snow, The C.O.M.P., Carinthia Freeski Open and The Grommet Jam Series. All of the features in Carinthia Parks are custom made on-site at Mount Snow.
