The Best Skiing in Connecticut

Skiing and X-Country

Ski lift exit in the snowConnecticut, the Nutmeg state, offers skiing close to home in southern New England, at areas that make up in history and quality what they lack in vertical drop. Four areas provide fun and affordability for the Constitution State's skiers and riders.

Walter Schoenknecht, the visionary behind Vermont's Mount Snow, created Mohawk Mountain in the Southern Berkshires, near Torrington. This is the oldest and largest ski area in Connecticut, and dubbed "the home of snowmaking."

 

A group of the ski team at Mohawk Mountain, Connecticut Schoenknecht was a snowmaking pioneer and was already figuring out how to make snow in 1948. The resort's 24 trails are all covered by snowmaking today, and most of them are available for night skiing. Mohawk is a private corporation working in partnership with the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection at Mohawk State Park. Mohawk State Forest has cross-country trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at the top of the mountain but are not maintained or connected with the Ski Area.

Mohawk's summit is 1,600 feet above sea level, and affords a vertical drop of 650 feet, with the longest trail 1.25 miles. A triple, four doubles and a carpet provide access to the area's trails, 95 percent of them covered by snowmaking.

Woodbury caters to snowboarders and jib park enthusiasts with many features and a 1/4 pipe. They are usually the first to open and the last to close in Connecticut and Southern New England.

There is a very good ski school, plus several racing programs. The 380 foot long magic carpet serves the some of the most exhilarating tubing runs in all of New England. Woodbury Ski Area also has x-country and snow shoes for rent that can be used at some local state parks within a 5 mile distance from the resort.
