For almost 60 years, families have been coming to Mount Snow to enjoy their vacation together and it’s not just because of the great skiing and riding. The resort and the local area offer an abundance of family friendly activities, dining and shopping which will keep smiles on the faces of both the big kids and the little kids.
The Mountain: Something for Everyone
Mount Snow is a pretty big place with lots of terrain to explore, but with all of that room to roam it is still very easy to meet back up with other members of the group because all of the skiable terrain is accessible from the summit of the mountain. You will often hear “let’s meet at the top”. So for families that have a mix of experts that want to hit the steeps of the North Face all day, intermediates that want to enjoy their turns on the Main Face and freestylers that want to head over to Carinthia, it’s easy to navigate back to the summit or make their way to the Main Base Area.
