This small ski area has everything truly needed to learn to ski as well as to improve your style. I took lessons there and was impressed with the emphasis on skiing as opposed to other side attractions that distract from the sport. People come here only to ski; there are no singles clubs, day care centers, or fashion shows. It's... More

We opted to come ski here over Presidents' Day weekend instead of Sugarbush because this place was a much better value deal. Only $30 for lift tickets and $30 for ski/equipment rental! (half day). The people here were also super nice and helpful with ski/boot fitting. The weather was fantastic - sunny, temperature in the 20s, and only a little... More

After winning tickets from the WGGB TV station, we couldn't resist driving 145 miles in only 2 and a quarter hours to some very fresh white powder, spending the day from 8:30am - 3pm. It flurried throughout the day March 24th, 2013 and the ungroomed areas had 8 inches of new fluff. They had family races on the front slope,... More

My grandchildren learned to ski at the Snow Bowl on their Holiday visits. The ski schools runs super programs, the slopes are groomed well, and there are lots of choices . It is rarely too crowded, and it is an intimate setting. The folks who work there are friendly and helpful.

It's small, family-friendly and the ski instructors (especially Bob) are phenomenal with our young children!

This review is not about skiing at the Snow Bowl or the Snow Bowl itself, but really the area around it. On a recent trip, we had such an unexpected, remarkable, beautiful, and singular experience near the Snow Bowl that we wanted to post about it. We visited Middlebury on a vacation and when leaving the area, we took a... More

Middlebury College Snow bowl is in Hancock, Vermont on Route 125; not in Londonderry as it is listed on Tripadvisor. It is a great smaller ski area which caters to all skill levels especially when the very challenging Allen and Ross slopes are open. A high percentage of skiiers and boarders at Middlebury are Vermont residents with season passes. This... More
