Where Now: Mount Snow, Vt.

Where Now: Mount Snow, Vt.

One of Vermont’s most accessible ski resorts, Mount Snow is four hours from New York City and two and a half hours from Boston.

New owners with a passion for snowmaking put this resort on springtime’s map.

Along Vermont’s scenic Route 100, a local in a red flannel shirt and grease-stained jeans starts his day by kicking the last of his driveway snowbank to pieces, hoping it will melt in the bright sun. It’s only early spring, but some people are just over winter. I am not one of them.

Especially since learning that Mount Snow has invested more than $8.5 million in state-of-the-art snowmaking equipment over the past two years. It’s time to check back in: It’s been three decades since I last visited the mountain so popular with metro New Yorkers.

Over 700 skiers -- and, y'know, boarders -- put wax to slope for the first time in too many months. But Snow had a bonus in store: All of its opening weekend revenue is going to be donated to the nearby Deerfield Valley Food Pantry.
