Long lines today (about 15 minutes wait) for most of the day. The snow was pretty good however.

The recent snow helped them out and got some more terrain open. Pretty long line for the summit triple in the morning, but it cleared out after lunch. Bear Peak was very nice, with the trails that were open having packed powder on top and hard pack underneath the fresh snow. Blasting snow on a few runs throughout the day too. Overall worth a stop if you have a pass, otherwise wait until later in the season for more to open up!

Could not ask for a better first day of the season. It pretty much snowed for two days straight and there was fresh snow to be found everywhere all day long. This little mountain packs a big punch and has some of the best terrain in southern New England. Unless you disdain slow double chairs, why spend $144 for a lift ticket at Stratton when you can ski Magic for $74

Packed powder for most of the mountain with some ice patches on the more trafficked trails. Some small powder stashes can be found throughout the mountain though, with lots of snowmaking whales. Front 5 were especially icy, but still skiable. Definitely looks like they will be getting more open soon with the mount of snowmaking going on. Overall the typical mid January day out on the mountain!

I skied today and the snow was really great. The runs that they do have opened are covered really well, I was really impressed. Do be prepared to warm up in your car. At least at Spruce Lodge, they were only letting people in to use the bathroom and then leave quickly, on a one-way route. I think they are taking reservations for the Pub upstairs, but I bet they are very hard to get. I recommend coming on a weekday if at all possible, it was great!

DELIGHTFUL day at Ragged. No lines. Spear lift opened up to Flying Yankee’s delicious grooming. Virtually everyone is helping keep the place healthy and safe.

Outstanding day at Sunapee today. Delightful packed powdah conditions and not a square inch of ice in sight. No crowds, Blastoff and Chipmunk were heavenly and the staff is cognizant and enforced health protocols. The cloud banks below the halfway point in the mountain provided for jaw dropping scenery.

Snowboarded Dec 28-30 - like other review said Christmas rain really hurt the mountain but overall still good groomed runs. And short/ no lift lines if u skipped the gondola. Now need to hope for some snow storms to fill in the rest of the mountain and the woods.

Conditions where icy with narrow and balding runs. The rain yesterday must have killed any early session fun.

First time here. Lots of untracked powder and stashes to be found. Love this place and the vibe. Great steeps for a small hill. No long run out. Slow chairlifts to let your legs recoup. Can’t wait to come back.

The recent storm really helped them out! The whole Front 5 area is open and well covered with some huge whalebacks to play on. The upper mountain is mostly open, with trails mostly packed powder there. Mid to lower mountain got icy as the day went on, especially on Bypass and Extension. There were still some powder pockets to be found, especially along the Front 5! Overall great early season conditions

Amazing conditions but b
36 inches of new snow in the past 18 hours! Unfortunately the resort was not ready for it and they only managed to open 2 lifts. This weekend's conditions should be better as they get time to dig out lifts and groom and check With COVID, the lodges are eat and get out, so be prepared not to rest indoors. Hopefully the cooks will make it in tomorrow, today it was pre-made sandwiches only.

Upper mountain is pretty decent considering the time of year. Lower mountain has a few dirt spots showing through but most can be avoided. Glad I waited to break out the new skis but still had a great day.

Beautiful afternoon for some spring skiing. Weather is cold, but not brutal. Mountain was great at 3:30 when we showed up. Not ski’d off. Hoping to ski until they close at 9pm!

Great conditions right now with soft snow across the area. Most everything is open, however the steeper trails do have dirt patches and rocks showing. The cruisers are very well covered though and even the glades are pretty nice. Snow showers at the top allude to the snow storm coming Thursday, which should fill in the dirt spots. Overall great day and there should be plenty more to come.

Been skiing mount snow for 35 years and this past weekend was by far the best visit yet. 86 of 88 trails were in pristine condition. My son and I spent most of our time disputing which run was the best. He claimed “Olympic” I argued “Plummet” We finally agreed they were all great! Kudos to the crew at Mount Snow.

Once again spring conditions today with nice soft snow and no crowds. The mogals were nice and soft today along with most of the glades with the exception of Black Hole. Some patches of dirt in some high traffic and non groomed runs but overall a great day. With over a foot of snow for Thursday, now is the time to get here!

Great conditions out there today with everything open. Soft snow towards the bottom with firmer stuff up top. Very little ice, even the glades were pretty good with soft snow and plenty of coverage. Crowds died down around noon and it was empty by two in the afternoon.

Amazing bluebird day with 100% open. The Winslow side was purrrrrfect. Every trail was delicious. Groomers, glades, whatever. It was simply amazing. They were having race finals on the Holt side so it was crowded thee and with the sun shining bright on that side, it got a little sticky. But if you stayed on the shadow part of the trail, it was awesome. Superb day and one amazing place

Best powder days I’ve had at jay and I’ve had many. What an epic weekend. Knee deep stashes everywhere. There was so much pow I’ve found lines and glades I didn’t even know existed yet. Flyer and tram were closed on Saturday but you could hike a bit to hit that side. Jay is the BEST

Smuggs never disappoints. We skied all day on Sunday Feb 9, 30+" new snow in past few days, very cold, no wind, no crowds! Both Madonna and Sterling peaks were in top shape. Friendly skiers ad boarders and great lifties. Tough to pick a favorite run: Upper FIS, Chilcoot, Rumrunner, Black Snake and Practice Slope.

Spent day at Killington. No new snow in about a week, but trail conditions were pretty good. By 2pm trails were pretty scraped off to the sides with ice and hard pack down the middle. A few trails were too thinly covered for my taste. Clouds made it very difficult to pick up slope contours near the top (not their fault). Bear Mt. lift wasn’t spinning which created lines. Summit Gondola broke down so that sucked for a little while.
