Mount Southington is great for a short afternoon visit. Lift lines were not long. Prices were a little on the high side for such a small area, but overall not a bad afternoon. Good for if you're just learning to ski or snowboard.

This is a small mountain which is decent for teaching your kids to ski. It is close and convenient to the Hartford area. Lift tickets and lessons are reasonable. Lift lines the day we went were minimal, particularly earlier in the day. There is not a wide variety of terrain, ski runs, or vertical drop. You'll start repeating runs after... More

This place is convenient located right off I 84. Close to home, with reasonable prices and quality services, it will be (from now on) one of our favorite places to go for a long weekend versus a long trip to a overpriced Vermont and its low quality lodging. At Mt. Southington is enough room for beginners as well for advanced... More

I learned how to ski here. My high school snowboard club snowboarded here. Now I'm teaching my kids how to ski here. This is not really a "mountain" -- it's more like a bump. Bump Southington. But it's OUR bump!

This is a small, family friendly mountain which is perfect for an affordable ski experience for children and teens. Our kids enjoyed the proximity of the mountain and the opportunity to night ski. They loved practicing jumps and the terrain park. Not much in terms of elevation, but a great way to get the kids on skiis and improve their... More

What a great day! We go every year, and the lessons are the best! The kids are old enough now to ski anywhere they want, and the convenience is great! They have a barbeque going outside, and a fire pit to sit around if it's a decent day! There are also hotels and restaurants nearby if you want to make... More

my 6 year old daughter and I have been skiing together for 3 years now and we really enjoy Mount Southington. First, it is SO convenient to everywhere.. and once you park, you just walk across the very flat driveway to the ticket booth. Second, they have a very nice learn to ski program and beginners chair lift (double) for... More

How convenient to have this family destination right in town. After school of after dinner for a couple hours makes it great. It's certainly not the biggest or fanciest ski area in New England but it exudes lots of charm and is priced right. There always coupons and vouchers you can find to make even more affordable. I hope they... More

Classic nightime ski area with a great old style family lodge, and really nice people. They catered an adult surprise birthday party for a friend and it was very good and professionally serviced.
