The Snow Report
Well good afternoon folks! We hope you all had a great day out there getting those midweek turns in under yet another beautiful day here at Mount Snow! It may be spring, but it’s still winter here and March has so far been nothing short of amazing this far.
For tomorrow, we plan to ski and ride on 85 trails across 587 acres of open terrain. We’ll have a high of 31 degrees at the base and 23 degrees at the summit. The clouds should roll in tonight and stick around for the rest of the week. The wind will stay pretty low with 10-18 mph gusts from the north at the top, and 8-14 mph gusts at the base.
Have you been over to Carinthia yet? I’d get over there as soon as you can, the park is looking better than ever, and they even built a mini-pipe which is so much fun!
We’ve got a super exciting weekend coming up! The Bud Light Reggaefest returns to Mount Snow for a weekend of fantastic live reggae music! Featuring performances at the Snow Barn as well as a party in the Base Area Saturday and Sunday. Plus, two of my favorite events, the Sink or Skim Pond Skimming Competition is on Saturday, and the Duct Tape Derby is on Sunday! You should definitely come up and have some fun with us! Check out these great lodging packages.
We plan to have 8 of our lifts spinning tomorrow morning, beginning at 9:00 a.m. We are now operating under our spring lift operations schedule. During this time, some lifts are scheduled to run less frequently midweek and weekends. Please refer to our lift status dashboard for lift openings, closings, and holds.
See you on the slopes!

Truth in Snow Reporting
Our snow reporting goal is simple – Transparency. No one should ever second-guess what a mountain reports for its conditions, weather, snow surface or anything else. When you read the Mount Snow snow report it should be trusted as if you wrote it yourself.
So, you might find our approach to snow reporting a little different from other resorts of similar size.
First off, when it comes to snow fall, we’re not going to give you some inflated total, or an unrealistic range of 2-8”, instead we are going to go out and measure the snow where it falls and give you an exact number. Don’t believe us? Simply take a look at our summit snow stake live stream.
And we have adopted a boundary-to-boundary policy, which means all of the tree terrain is always open to those who have the ability to ski/ride it, but those areas are not marked, patrolled or maintained. We have identified the gladed tree areas on our trail map to make it easier for you to find areas that have been thinned out for a more enjoyable tree skiing experience.
In short, you come to Mount Snow for a getaway, not a hassle. Enjoy our 600 skiable acres and know that when we say we have two feet of fresh powder we mean it. On the flip side, when the weather is not forecasted to be so nice we will give you all the necessary information to help you best prepare for the conditions of that day.
Mount Snow Terrain Access and Uphill Travel Policy
Mount Snow (the “Resort”) and the United States Forest Service (“USFS”) encourage the use of public lands. The Resort is located on both public and private lands. Even on public/USFS lands, you must abide by the Resort rules and USFS restrictions and follow its recommendations. Be advised, private landowners may also close or restrict access to lands they own adjacent to public lands and your knowledge and adherence to their wishes are appreciated.
Mount Snow is accessible for skinning, hiking, and snowshoeing from dawn to dusk during our winter operating season. From dawn until opening and from closing until dusk the Resort may have operations in progress including, but not limited to, snowmaking, grooming, vegetation trimming, electrical work, or terrain park feature construction. Due to snowmaking, grooming activities and associated vehicle traffic typically occurring on the mountain, we do not allow guests to access the Mount Snow trail system for skinning, skiing, riding, hiking or snowshoeing before the resort is open for the winter operating season.
During the winter operating season, guests wishing to access the Mount Snow trail system through hiking, snow shoeing, or skinning may do so after purchasing an “Uphill Travel” pass ($10 for a day pass, available in Mount Snow Sports at the Grand, or $49 for an “Uphill Travel Season Pass”, available at the Season Pass Office in the Clocktower Building) or be in possession of a valid season’s pass with a complimentary “Uphill Travel” endorsement. Guests are permitted to hike, snow shoe, or skin from dawn to dusk only. Guests engaging in uphill travel are responsible for knowing locations of closed terrain and trails, snow making, events or other operations in progress by reading the daily Snow Report, viewing trails boards at the bottom of Lifts #2, #9 or #11 and on .
- Uphill access to Resort trails is at your own risk
- Closed trails and terrain parks may not be marked or signed from the bottom, top, or other access points on the trail.
- The trails and terrain parks are designed for use by skiers and riders and any form of downhill descent other than skis, snowboard, snowshoeing, or hiking is prohibited.
- Sledding or sliding in any form is dangerous and prohibited on Mount Snow premises.
- Guests accessing the trail system through uphill travel should stay to the side of the trail, wear highly visible clothing, and choose a route which gives downhill traffic the best view of your location. Be aware of sharp turns and knolls where you may not be in view of downhill traffic
- Guests accessing the Mount Snow trail system must adhere to Your Responsibility Code
- Your “Uphill Travel” ticket or pass must be worn at all times
- Snowshoeing trail maps are available at Mount Snow Sports at the Grand and these trails are the preferred method of travel for hiking and snowshoeing
