Crotched Mountain is a resort that provides the luxury and amenities of a big mountain in a smaller area. The intimate hill has over one hundred acres of skiable terrain that keep you riding all day long no matter what your skill level. The bigger mountains often overshadow this hidden gem, which is a great thing for you – fewer lines! The smaller crowds allow you to enjoy more time on snow and really get you spending time advancing your skills, no matter how advanced you are. In fact, Crotched Mountain is the only ski area on the East Coast that lets you work on your skills until three in the morning. That’s right, you can ski from morning until well, morning if you wanted to.
Longer Season to Enjoy the Mountain
Crotched Mountain doesn’t pay much attention to mother nature either with their advanced snowmaking abilities. Among the top ski hills in the United States, Crotched Mountain possesses some of the largest per acre production capacities. You need not worry either as all of the snowmaking machines are energy efficient as they do not use the more commonly used diesel generated machines.
With five lifts in total, Crotched Mountain can transport over nine thousand passengers per hour from the base of the mountain to the top! Skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the twenty-five trails as many times as they please. For the more adventurous riders, Crotched Mountain also has three terrain parks; two small/medium parks and one larger one.
Night or Day
As New England’s only resort with late night skiing, riders can enjoy concerts, block parties, fires and other events all night long while getting some great skiing in at the same time. The hills are groomed every night between eight and nine so you will also be enjoying the luxury of freshly groomed hills even at night. Students can even enjoy discounted tickets on Friday nights by showing proper identification when purchasing their ski ticket.
For skiers and snowboarders who prefer to sleep at night over skiing, there is a wide range of accommodations available for any budget. Many are within walking distance and even have great views of the mountain from your bedroom window. Whether skiing for the day or the night, make sure to plan your trip in advance as the small mountain can fill up quickly. Call ahead for accommodations, rental equipment and purchase your ski tickets online to make sure you’re having the most stress-free vacation.
