  • A not too difficult or long hike up the trails to the top of the mountain. A great way to take in the fall foliage and view of the nearby mountains.

  • The Snow Bowl will never compete with the likes of Killington or Sugarbush, but as a fantastic place to spend the day skiing with family- it's well worth it. The terrain is varied and features a lot.....  more

  • Best kept secret stash. When the snow is good, the Snow bowl is great. Not overly groomed and run by great people. They have their covid restrictions on point and so far everyone I've run across (staff and fellow skiers) have been very respectful. It's a challenging time for everyone, but of the Vermont resorts I've visited so far this season, this continues to be my favorite.
  • Had an absolutely awesome time here after a 15" storm, though It's a beautiful mountain regardless of the snowfall. The snow bowl can boast a great diversity of trails, comparable to any big mountain in the area. They're just a little shorter! It felt very family friendly. It was oy 40$ for a half day on a weekend. Very clean atmosphere, super friendly staff. It also seems like there is always something goin on here. You can't really go wrong if your looking for a good day on the mountain. The only con is you gotta watch out for the flat spots if you board. After a few runs you'll figure them out though. ...Just some perspective: I grew up in riding in the Sugarbush + Bolton area - two very decent sized mountains for Vermont. Been on a board size I was 6, and have shredded many a Vermont slopes. The Snowbowl has immense potential for a great day on the slopes.
