Mount Snow's History

Mount Snow has a long and storied history that includes numerous crazy events, innovations and stories that took place over our nearly 64 years of skiing and riding in southern Vermont. A true visionary, Walt Schoenknecht made this place one of a kind. One of the very first ski resorts on the East Coast, Mount Snow is continuing to define the ski industry even today.
