Lodge at Mount Snow- Great family-friendly place!

Just returned from our 4th President's day weekend at Mount Snow (unfortunately cut short by rain.)

Have to say first of all- Mount Snow is always a great place but apparently it was sold recently to new owners and it really shows- the staff was even more attentive, the bathrooms were all renovated and they have invested in some great snowmaking equipment.

This is also the 4th year we've stayed at the Lodge and Mount Snow and I just wanted to recommend it highly- it is a very pleasant, family-friendly place to stay. We go in a large group of 20 or more family members with kids ranging from 6-16.

The owner, Jim, couldn't be nicer or more accomodating. The rooms are not fancy but very clean and the prices are good. There is an indoor pool and two hot tubs.The best thing is that there is a large common room with a fireplace, a bar on one side and a pool table/pinball machines on the other. It is a great place to hang out apres ski, with the adults able to get a beer while the kids are right in the same room. There is entertainment nightly during the long holiday weekend and many locals also seem to hang out there.

Anyway- we plan to keep going back, but I just wanted to recommend the Lodge because we always have such a good time there!

Glad you enjoyed your recent visit to Mount Snow. As you noted, the ski area was sold to Peak's, a midwestern operator, who added all new fan gun snow making technology to the mountain which enables snow to be made a higher temps plus dropped a few million on top of that investment to start to upgrade the base lodge.

On the horizon, Peak's is requesting State permission to build a 12 acre snowmaking pond which will enable it to make snow on 100% coverage on existing trails plus they intend to add new trails to the system. If all goes well, much of this might be on tap for your visit next year.

Look to see you next year.
