About Magic Mountain Ski Area

Magic is southern Vermont’s only independently owned and operated mountain. Different than the corporate resorts, Magic has stayed true to the original Vermont ski culture. Magic skiers and riders enjoy an impressive 1700 vertical foot mountain emphasizing natural, diverse ski terrain in an atmosphere of shared camaraderie for the sport both on the slopes and in the lodge after a long, rewarding day. The Black Line Tavern serves as the communal social spot serving up great après ski food, drinks and entertainment. Magic has an authentic, relaxed vibe because, in reality, it still remains first and foremost a ski area, not a resort, and a distinctly Vermont one at that. It is a community spirit that keeps Magic thriving for those committed ski and riding enthusiasts who want to carve their own trail and experience real snow and obstacles that mother-nature puts on the hill.
