[R255R, Mount Snow] has converted the Mid Station into a craft beer bar with what is being called "the best craft beer selection at any ski mountain in the country." Craft beer comes from brew pubs and smaller breweries.

That's the assessment of Jason Palmer, food and beverage manager at Mount Snow and, while his judgment may be a tad tilted in favor of the superlative, the Station Tap Room has a great selection of specialty beers.

"The Mid Station never had an identity. We decided the exploding craft beer market provided an opportunity to offer people something different, so we changed things around, brought in 15 beer lines, and renamed the bar-restaurant the Station Tap Room," Palmer said.

"We're really striving for excellence," he said.

The Station opened for business Saturday Dec. 18. A visit on opening day found the selection of 15 craft beers, and a soup and sandwich menu. Three rounds of drinks for three people, along with soup and a snack platter for all rang up a tab of $77, plus tip.

It is among several eateries and watering holes at Mount Snow. Others include Cuzzins Bar & Grill, Marketplace, Not Just Burritos, Tony's Pizza, The Vermont Coffee Company at Mount Snow, Waffle Cabin, Timber House Southwestern Grille. Sundance Cafeteria, The Coop Bar, Carinthia Cafeteria & Bar, Summit Lodge & Double Diamond Bar, Harriman's Restaurant & Bar, Grand Country Deli & Store, and the Snow Barn.
