WEST DOVER, Vermont — Yesterday we received 12+ inches of snow at Mount Snow. The dreaded sleet/rain mix that was forecast early afternoon only came much later in the day and by then most of the storm had passed. The area is a winter wonderland, today the roads are clear and by Friday the conditions on the mountain are going to be delicious.

It will be a weekend not to miss. While you’re here, support our Walk of the Santas by donating $10. Receive the Santa Discount card and enjoy significant discounts throughout the valley. Get your Christmas shopping done, enjoy discounts on food and find affordable lodging. Check out all the discounts to the right. And if you’re not skiing, join the Scavenger Hunt Saturday afternoon and the Snowman Contest Sunday. Many great prizes will be given away!

Donate $50 and get a Santa Suit, the Santa Discount card and Scavenger Hunt map – go skiing in your new suit and Mount Snow will give you $25 off your lift ticket!

Sign up online, register at the Bonfire Party at the Matterhorn Inn Friday 7pm-11pm or in the Main Base Lodge at Mount Snow Saturday 8am – Noon.

Pledge Walk

On Saturday December 12th, Santas will gather at Noon in Mount Snow’s main base lodge in Dover, Vermont. Santas will take a short walk around the base area singing carols and sharing holiday cheer to all the spectators. Come support the walkers or be a Santa.

Scavenger Hunt

On Saturday after the walk, go on a scavenger hunt. Travel around the valley answering holiday trivia. At each location you will have to answer a question to get your stamp. Bring your Santa passport to the awards ceremony on Sunday for a chance to win one of many great prizes. $10 will cover your entrance fee as well as give you the Santa Discount card.
