Skied Sundown Thursday night 1.16.14. Snow was very soft but decent considering it's all machine made. No lift lines, easy parking and only $36 6-10pm. Even found some little bumps see pic. Overall no complaints keep up the good work Sundown.
If you're complaining about sundown you're expecting way too much. This is a southern New England mtn. The lines may take 2 minutes at most. The only time it's not do much fun is when ski bus kids are there. (Usually wed. Thurs and Fridays from about 3-7) other than that. It's a great mountain for ct. And they blow snow any chance they get. Even after all this warm weather they have plenty of snow. Is it vt. No. Is it Utah no. But it's out mtn. If you can't realize and remember we are in ct then you're not going to like it.
Skied from 6pm to 10...they groomed everything at about 7pm. Conditions quite good... Not icy.. Packed powder as advertised... A whole bunch of kids.. But by 8 30 had the place to ourselves. Finished at the bar till 11 00 pm.. Great fun tonite with good skiing
So I'm a big fan of sundown. It's 5 minutes away. I'm there all the time. Today. Blah!!! Every trail had 6' snow (ice) mounds that hadnt been groomed out yet. Just not fun. They blow a ton of snow but on days like this I wish they would put a flag up or something saying stay away. Hahaha
Ladies and gentalmen, if you're A serious skier that likes "steep and deep" like conditions, this is not your mountain. This is a hill. Not a mountain. The only fun you will have is if you enjoy skiing park for two hours. Not really sure why sundown gets so much hate. What else do you expect from connecticut?
