With more than seven decades of operation under their belt, Mohawk Mountain gives skiers the chance to explore a diverse range of wooded and open downhill runs—offering the state’s most trails at 26 (including 16 night trails), biggest vertical drop (at 650 feet), and eight lifts. Situated on 350 acres in northwestern Connecticut, there are cross-country trails for snowshoeing along with snow tubing, a recent addition. Mohawk Mountain also expanded its lodge to accommodate increased physical distancing measures, added an app-based food ordering system to better serve visitors, and made pass pickup easier through their new automated stations.
