Snow Trails Uses Record Amount of Water To Keep Runs In Prime Condition

Snow Trails is making the most of a winter which, to date, has been a couple of degrees warmer than the 2020-2021 edition.

According to the Snow Report on Sunday morning, Ohio’s premier ski resort has largely machine made, groomed snow. The crew was working hard that day and so some trails, lifts, and special features were offline for short periods of time. Terrain Park Features are set up in the Alpine Park.

Not all special features are online at present; on Sunday, only the Rustler and The Chute runs were closed.

As of Sunday, slopes were open for both skiing and snowboarding, as well as for tubing. Note that pre-registration is required, which can be accomplished here and here.

Last week, Snow Trails broke its own record for the amount of artificial snow produced. Some 6.6 million gallons of water were pumped within a 24 hour period, largely because of the resort’s new #5 pump. 

As a reminder, you can do a visual, live check of Mount Mansfield, the Beginner’s Area, the West Woods, and Tubing on the Snow Trails Webcams page.
