Pass through the security gate to Beaver Creek and you’ll see a sign with the resort’s motto, “Not Exactly Roughing It.” But don’t be fooled by the ice rink, ski valet, and plates of chocolate-chip cookies. The Beav hides its rough side in its terrain. The recently expanded 180-acre Stone Creek Chutes offer steep, gladed skiing for quick shots of 600 vertical feet. Plus, two new eight-seater gondolas provide better access to the goods, with less of a wait.

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.
