Ski Area
“Mount Snow can be divided into four distinct areas, and conveniently, each area attracts different levels of skiers: the Main Face is perfect for the novice to intermediate skier, Sunbrook serves intermediate to advanced skiers well, the North Face holds advanced to experts only terrain, and Carinthia is a giant freeskiing area. Bluebird Express, the new six-pack bubble lift, will get you to the top from the main base, but locals stick to the Canyon Express, which hits practically all the same trails but can be counted on for shorter lift lines. ”
