Nice views from the top, no lift lines
Snow conditions were terrible - ice everywhere. Many trails were closed.

Full review

We are trying out a variety of southern new england ski areas and had always wanted to try Catamount. It was awful. Many trails were closed (but not posted so) and the ones that were open were just ice with a dusting of powder on top. My son, who is a good skier, sat inside for an hour or so. I was afraid of getting hurt as they crated off several skiers in the morning. It's a cute mountain with very nice views and I suppose it has potential. The lodges are nice and roomy (which is rare) and they have a pub with a nice menu and good beer selection. We'll go back to Butternut or Mohawk before returning to Catamount. They could do a much better job. If you are a really good skier and can ski the black diamonds on ice, or if you are a beginner there are trails for you, but not much for us intermediates who like to have fun and challenge ourselves.
