wicked nice downhill.. althought u better watch out for those "water gates" they come out of nowhere and can mess you up. Needs a better trail map i found myslef atleast a mile away from the resort. but trails in general where all great.

Customer Service

if like downhill try 20 or 21 but at the end of 20 theres a hill you have to climb. for XC i suggest #1. the fire road rocks for speed!

Another year, another trip to Mt Snow. Nothing much new there. The place seems to be exactly the same for the past 3 years. They need to freshen it up a bit with some new stuff. Overall its a fun place to ride, just not all that exciting. They have the usual rocks and roots with a couple of steep sections here and there. It sure would be nice if they'd add some man made stuff to make things more interesting.

Customer Service

Starting on trail #1 isn't too bad following to #2 and then on to #12 and #11. 6A is a decent section. #6-#7-#15 isn't too bad either, except for the uphill. When I go somewhere to ride "DH" I really don't want to do much climbing.

Similar Products Used: You can find much harder/better riding at Bolton Valley, Attitash, and although not really in the area Whiteface. I'd have a hard time picking a favorite out of those three. Killington is an option as well, but in my opinion hardly worth mentioning when compared to those 3 places.

Great mountain, not very technical....but fun, fast, and flowy. Try riding with somebody that's been there before, lots of stuff that isnt really on the map. Been there like 5 times, maybe 6....fun place. 19 is a really fun trail, but requires a bit of climbing.....at least I think its 19...

Customer Service

18 is a fun trail when done at speed....check it out first though. 1, 6a(labeled 6) are both really fun....11 and 15 are also great(cut off of 18).

Similar Products Used: Attitash, NH.....technical, flowy, and steep. Killington for overall trail riding..

Pretty good stuff. Not the hardest but still a good mix of riding. Mostly some decent single track with a good mix of rocks and roots. The only dissapointing thing was that the 4x track was pretty much a sand pit.

Customer Service

18 was probably the best trail there.

This place rocks (can't understand why it's not rated higher)! How can you not love the downhill trails. On the left side of the map you have 2 or 3 nice rooty trails. On the right side you have some nice rocky trails. I'd have to say it's the best lift served trails in Vermont (sorry Killington). Had a blast.

Customer Service

Try them all.

Similar Products Used: Killington, not as good but worth going.

I was up a few years ago for the NORBA race. I cycled the expert Xcountry loop and was impressed. I enjoyed the workout and view. Vermont is one of the most beautiful states in the nation. Aerobic difficulty is directly related to how hard you ride.

Customer Service

Pro XCountry loop is 4 expert laps.

Similar Products Used: Sherwood forest next to the resort is sweet.

safety dance man   Weekend Warrior [Aug 25, 2003]

Since i am a real noob and might be the type of kid that all you "hard core" guys are complaining about, I dont have anything to compare it to. But from my point of view it is really awesome. The single track through the woods is great. And they do have some open stuff for speed demons.

Customer Service

For intermediate I would recomend trail 1 all the way. Nice single track through the woods. Pretty technical

Similar Products Used: Cross town trails are pretty cool. Grab a trail map at the mountain and it will show you it. But dont buy the pass, its not enforced at all, its just a waste of 10 bucks

I loved this place. Get yourself a trail map and goto town. They have something for everyone. I was only ther for one weekend (Dirt Cheap package) and I went through a set of brake pads and a rear tire but it was totally worth it. Start on trail 1 from the summit and get ready to negotiate some excellent single track. It has rock gardens, steep downhills, log/pipe overs, a couple of NorthShore style obstacles, and drops what more could you ask for. If strictly downhill is your speed goto trails 19 and 20. I was doing 40+ mph, hangin on for my life and loving every second. This was on a Sugar+ no less. If there is one bad thing about this place it's that it isn't exactly newbie friendly. If your not afraid to crash occasionally you'll enjoy it, but if your nervous when you get to the top you'll probably end up taking the service road down. I saw this happen. I don't think I'll be able to wait till next summer to get back up there, but that will give me plenty of time to build a hardcore freeride bike. The more suspension you have here the more fun you will have. My recomendation is a minimum of 4inches and disc brakes for the mud and rain.

Customer Service

Go with trail #1 on your first trip down. It's a great warm up trail. Though not exactly beginner friendly.
