I had been in Vermont, planning to ski one more day, but very little snow. Snow reports said Mohawk had really good snow, so decided to ski there on way back to NYC.
Not at all disappointed.
They really do have first class snow making - the size of the cannons have to be seen!
Yes it is small, but has some very nice trails, the artificial snow was not "concrete" like it can be in many places. The instruction was first rate (Sunday afternoon group lesson, $59 including rental and lift pass, me the only one in the group), and very chatty. Views really pretty.
An excellent mountain to visit if you are in the New York City area as it is not too far, and a lovely warm-up if you are driving up to the bigger mountains in Vermont or NH. Well, for everyone up to intermediate level.
I would also definitely recommend this mountain if you are new to skiing, as it looks a great place to learn.it has 3 nice areas, easy green in front of the Lodge, a very nice set of green and easy blues to the left, and a lift serving the more difficult and longer trails to the right. All lifts have safety bars, so that is a big plus.
Also has some lovely tree skiing.
The one negative, you have to walk a bit of a distance between each of the areas.
