A trip to Stratton means a 2 hour drive for us, but it is more than worth it. The Slopes are great, the variety of terrain for both ski and board is incredible. The early morning is the best time to arrive, ahead of the crowd. The people that work there are great, friendly, courteous, helpful to a fault. Any questions are quickly answered. I have a decent mountain resort only 25 minutes from home, but Stratton is head and shoulders above the rest. Once you go, you will be back.
