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.

We found beautiful snow and sufficient room in the beginner area to practice. We were thrilled to be able to try a chairlift for the first time. The operator was very kind and taught us how to get on and off. Unfortunately, the kids working the rental department were not well trained, the restrooms were old and out dated and... More

Me and my roommate came here in search of fresh powder which is what we got. Great runs, a bit of an issue with the lifts as they would periodically shudder and stop which can be quite disheartening. Either way it was super fun! Only thing is that the restrooms are oddly located and I walked into a boiler room... More

After several years of being away from down hill skiing I returned to Mount Southington Ski Area and I found: that the snow guns at Southington made beautiful powder, and with two new lifts operating put me on the summit in a few minutes. I found the staff worked hard to make sure the skiing was ready for all levels... More

My son (and husband) decided to try snowboarding. The lesson and package was reasonably priced and had them both looking like pros. Well, not quite! However, the restaurant and lounge left a lot to be desired. Restrooms were poorly maintained. Chairs and tables didn't look updated since I was there in 1981 for my first lesson. Beer and drink prices... More

This was my first time with my family, the instructers were good, kids program is outstanding. The rental equipments were nor the best but manageable. The staff members at the rental office were untrained, they would respond to you in a sporadic way. I am pretty sure that the ski equipment was not adjusted to my weight and height. I... More

It is a beginner area. Great place for parents to drop kids and go shopping. Pretty flat. Everyone learns to ski there.

Operative word here is "little." Once you are accustomed to long ski runs, you'll quickly get bored here. Great for beginners, tho (it's where I got my start)!
