Skiers - AVOID this place!!
After reading the reviews of Magic Mountain I decided to take time out out of my busy schedule to pay this place a visit. I must say I am very disappointed with the entire experience. I found that it's a bunny hill compared to the real Vermont ski resorts like Sugarbush, Stowe and Killington. Most trails were groomed to look like your home w-w carpet and there was nothing steep to speak of. The "glades" were a joke and with only two lifts the lines were terrible. Even the base area lodge was crappy and the staff was rude! The only reason I can think of going to this place is if you live next door and don't have a car, or if you are a beginner with kids to take advantage of their ski school. I'd rather sit home and watch Oprah than go back to this place.
