Plan Your Mount Snow Valley Vacation With These Fun Activities This Holiday Season

Plan Your Mount Snow Valley Vacation with these Fun Activities this Holiday Season

Skiing Snow Valley is always an enjoyable experience.  Known to have more natural snow that any resort in the region, added to our limited lift ticket policy, equals more time skiing, not standing in line.  Our challenging slopes consisting of 15 trails and a vertical drop of 900 feet, combined with 20km of XC trails, and a new XC touring center assures your total enjoyment.

Snow Valley, built in 1939, is one of the oldest ski areas in the country.  For over 30 years, the area has been a favorite spot for the skiing family as well as the serious recreation skier.  Over the years Snow Valley continues to maintain its identity with reasonable rates, congenial atmosphere, and a true Vt flavor!

Guaranteed Snow, of course we can’t guarantee the weather.  But Snow Valley earned its reputation long ago for the unusual amount of natural snow that is collects and retains each year.  Facing north, Snow Valley nestles in a unique configuration of mountains that acts as a snow funnel, so that there is plenty of snow into spring.

 

MOUNT SNOW VALLEY offers more than just skiing. We have compiled a list of fun things to do in and around Mount Snow Valley for your friends and family to enjoy.
