Mount Snow is a nice enough place. The snow-making is good and there are plenty of ways and variety to get from top to bottom. Some slopes are very crowded.

The lift lines were a bit chaotic and the waits can be long on a busy weekend. Also, if you're skiing with a family, it's easy for everyone to end up at a different base area. They seem to have 3 base areas. At one of these areas, Carinthia, they ruined a nice run by making it a terrain park. I guess it's OK, just not what I'm looking for.

One big mess they can't control is the wicked traffic exiting Rt 100 in Wilmington, VT. A 40 minute traffic back-up at the one traffic light in town is not unusual.
