Inside Scoop

During spring, make it to the mountain early since sunshine and higher temperatures will quickly soften snow throughout the day. If you are skiing at this time, you can usually snag a deal on next year’s season pass or lift tickets and lodging. If you book online, you can also score a discount on lift tickets any time of the year.

Stratton offers many different ski and snowboard programs for all levels, including multi-day women’s camps. Rentals are available on the mountain as well as plenty of retail opportunities. Childcare is available for children ages six weeks to five years old.
