Magic Mountain Ski Area, Vermont
Magic Mountain has a history that’s still very much in evidence. Magic Mountain by far is the best, steepest and hardest terrain in Southern Central VT. You cannot find black & double black diamond run at any of the larger resorts (Stratton, Okemo, Killington) that can compare to Magic’s legendary terrain. Never any crowds, no fancy high speed lifts, skiing Magic is like stepping back into the80’s.
This is classic New England skiing with narrow trails, some thin cover, ledges to hop, etc. The base lodge is all you need and the tavern is fantastic for anyone looking to get their groove on.
The town keeps Christmas going all year round, but in December, the town and Christmas make it worthwhile. The annual North Pole ice contest attracts sculptors from all over the world and after a visit here, itwould very difficult not to believe in Santa. Beautiful lights, fireworks,incredible atmosphere and the festive spirit are all over the town. Maybe Santa himself designed the town.
