The Snow Report
Another day of early season skiing and riding is on the books and it was great to finish the day with top-to-bottom skiing on Canyon. And as we look toward the week ahead it’s only going to get better from here! The most powerful snowmaking system in the Northeast is planned to continue to run across three mountain faces as long as temps allow.
The upcoming week holds good news as well with forecasted snowfall on Tuesday, and even more possibly on Thursday and Friday. Temps will remain low this week, which will set us up nicely as we aim to expand terrain.
For next weekend, we plan to have Cascade, Canyon, Free Fall, River Run, and High Traverse, and it’s very likely that list will grow. Since yesterday, our snowmakers have spent time on all five of those trails as well as Beaver Hill, The Gulch, Deer Run, Long John, and Snowdance, so you can expect those to be the next ones to open. Stay tuned as we assess our snowmaking progress and make further announcements about next weekend.
For this upcoming week, we are still planned to be closed Monday-Friday, but we expect that to change in the near future. During this time, Traveler Passes will still only be valid midweek. Check back here for updates about midweek openings as well as on all our social media channels.
In the meantime, our Season Pass Office in The Clocktower will be open 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekends, if you are still looking to pick up your pass. If you have not bought your pass yet, there is still time to take advantage of early season pricing at mountsnow.com/passes.
See you Saturday!

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
