Some folks in southern Vermont have a “tragic” nickname for Magic Mountain because they think the 135-acre ski area—which has suffered closures and sketchy management in the past—deserves better. But last summer, loyalists came together to buy the mountain and run it as a cooperative, similar to Mad River Glen. Their intent: to keep the legitimate steeps and trees open and spruce up the ski area’s infrastructure and snowmaking. Now the only thing tragic about this mountain, located in Londonderry, would be passing by it on a powder day.

For no-bullshit, rowdy terrain, schralp Castlerock. For underutilized glades and meandering cruisers, there’s always Mount Ellen. Here’s how to make the most of all three.

Don't throw the boards into storage just yet. March, April, and even May (if you ski at Mt. Bachelor) are the best months to get great deals on lodging, lift tickets, and equipment, all while curating a gnarly goggle tan. Sun, brews, music, and costumes are what make spring skiing the next best alternative to an epic powder day. Here's where to close out yet another great season of shredding.
