A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
I've skied Mount Snow for years and consider it my go-to Vermont ski resort...especially nice that with it only being an 80-minute drive from my MA home, it's always a pleasurable day trip.
I took my young, beginner grandson to Snow yesterday (March 2022). This is his first season on the slopes and only his second experience after 2 1/2 days at Stowe back in January. He ended up in an almost-private lesson with just two other kids. The weekday ski school experience was magical. Ms. Stevie helped get him booted up and out on the flat slope in no time, and then Mr. Will took over, used more patience than any human should possess, and got the little guy on his way. After lunch, he and I skied the kiddie Green and rode the kiddie Chair for a couple of hours. Thank you, Stevie and Will, for your enthusiasm and dedication to getting little kids off on the right foot here in the Green Mountains!... Full Review
I live about 70 miles from Mount Snow. It’s an easy drive for me. My teen son loves it so he and I will often come up for a day or two. I have been skiing here for many years. The crowds can he pretty big on weekends (like everywhere) but if you have the opportunity to come during the week, do not hesitate. You will be rewarded with serene, beautiful trails all to yourself. This is a bright, sunny mountain and the runs are long and glorious. I have no complaints about Mount Snow. The staff is wonderful and the vibe is def sort of “old school” Vermont skiing; less pretension and more enjoyment of the time you spend on the slopes. The prices are in line with most other larger mountains. This is a fun, relaxing place with something for everyone. Give it a try. ... Full Review
Nice place to take the family for intermediate runs. Bigger mountain than you expect. Able to handle decent sized holiday crowds. Close to NY/NJ and there is plenty to experience in town. Staff is super friendly but gets Zero stars on knowledge. Much of the staff doesn’t ski/understand the mountain. Better bring a trail map. ... Full Review
Skied several Epic locations in a southern VT ski trip and this was one of our last stops. The mountain was easily accessible and crowds were moderate due to it's easy access to neighboring states. The snow quality was not as good as Okemo (an Epic neighbor), and was more icy. The village at the base was a bit fabricated/swiss alps hokey aesthetic, but some of the vintage lodges had great architecture. The South and North faces of the mountain were very fun and definitely less traversed. ... Full Review

This was my favorite resort until taken over by new ownership. Staff was rude, charge for parking with no place to pay (expect a fine), conditions on 12/26/21 were icy with no base even though they advertised 18” base, etc. Save yourself aggravation and find another ski slope. I’ll never return and my friends said the same. ... Full Review
I went to the mountain yesterday with my 6 year old son and friends after not being there for 10 years. Used to have a house at the base of Corinthia so was a little taken back to see it as a terrain park but my son and his friend absolutely loved it. There were some experts on it so we also enjoyed watching them. I love mount snow for its varied terrain and have so many memories there. We started at Corinthia, then skied main for a bit before heading to the northface and sunbrook. Wide open trails never disappoint as well as the way the lifts can take you from one area to another. I did miss the music on beartrap though. But northface trails were smooth and cloud nine top end was stunning with the sun and not crowded. Lodge and all the trails on main were not icy except one near the main lift and most of that trail was closed. It was St. Pat's yesterday and sunny and i thought absolutely perfect spring skiing conditions. I am surprised by all the negative reviews on this website. There are however no vaping signs everywhere so my guess is there was a problem that the mountain worked through or perhaps the problem is worse on weekends but all of the attendants and folks in ticketing and food purchase at the top of the mountain and the base were super helpful and friendly especially when i needed help fixing my ticket because i accidentally put it near a credit card. The bluebird express is awesome...and grand summit is fast too getting up to the top. I do miss some of the old perks where St. Pat's and Valentine's day are free days as well as the sit down and serve restaurants open but with covid that is understandable and thankful to be able to make reservations online for a table inside when we wanted one (order food on own and have a table to sit down). We also were glad to get a table out in the sun later in the day. Food was much better than any other ski place we have been all year and excellent variety but as a former passholder miss the indoor dining experience once skiing is done for the day. Hopefully next year covid will end and allow for that. I also need to mention the person working the top lift restaurant was very pleasant and got my son and his friend some water when they needed it most. Sill my favorite mountain in the east. Hopeful I will never experience what some of the reviews say on this site...and look forward to another trip next year.... Full Review
Great mountain for southern Vermont. Various areas to explore. I’d like to see a high speed lift for North Face. Accessible from three lodges and the Moover shuttle. Plenty of fast blues on the main face, decent black diamonds on North Face, a beginners area, and Terrain Parks. Good variety. Grooming could be better and random trails closed. ... Full Review
I understand and share the concerns about mask wearing and social distancing, but today my day pass was taken away by a lift attendant who was very disrespectful, yelling at me that she had warned many times (that was the first lie) when she saw me pulling my mask to wipe my nose. Not happy with that, she also took away the passes of my teenage child and his friend. When I went to complain about it in the office, they first told me that they were going to talk to the lift attendant and call me back. After waiting for 45 minutes, I was told that we wouldn't get our passes back. When I asked the reason for the kids losing their passes they told me that the worker said their masks were down. This was a blatant lie. We drove three hours and did two runs before our passes were stolen. How can it be possible that a shameless lier can ruin a guest's day with total impunity? But there was nothing I could do about it. Not even get a refund! On top of ruining our day, they stole our money.... Full Review
Spent three mid-week days with the family at Mount Snow. Great conditions all three days with grooming really mattering on the last day. Fun for a family. Challenge only really comes with moguls or the big jumps at Carinthia. Bubble lift was a game changer for the cold days. Only 8 or 20 lifts were operating. The halfpipe was closed as was the kiddie terrain part. Those last two items were major selling points for my boys and were closed all three days. ... Full Review
