Stratton Mountain is a combination of two polar-opposite resorts. On the one hand, perfectly manicured trails (no. 5) and speedy lifts (no. 5), along with fine dining (Verde, The Sushi Bar) and ample ski-in, ski-out lodging make this an upper-crust resort for 50-somethings. On the other hand, a dive bar (The Green Door), lively après (Grizzly’s) and one of the Easts best terrain parks (no. 3) make Stratton a jibber’s paradise and, as one reader puts it, a “great family mountain” with something for both adults and teens. Readers complain that it’s expensive (no. 24). They also frequently describe Stratton as “crowded” and “not very challenging.” This year, however, Stratton has spent a chunk of cash to carve out four new sparsely treed trails to the underused Sunbowl. That adds 25 acres of expert terrain and promises to relieve crowds on the main mountain. —G.M.

High-speed everything, everywhere.

Lacks steeps but has plenty of attitude.

Don’t Miss » The Fire & Ice Festival, Feb. 17 to 25, celebrates Stratton’s 50th with a different decade each day of the week.

Off-Mountain Restaurant » The Red Fox Inn, five minutes from the base of the access road, flies in bands from New Orleans.

Mandatory Run » Liftline, a rarely crowded, narrow, rolling trail, varies between steep and moderate pitch over 1,375 vertical feet.
