Snow conditions here are good even when you may not have any snow out your window! which is the case this year (2020), grass at my house but 15" of snow here. Trails for all abilities and the grooming is top notch. They hold many high school races here.

Best conditions are when trails have been tracked. Then, it's the best skiing around. Even when there's no snow in the Pioneer Valley, there'll be great skiing here.

I have gone to Notchview for the last 15 years.In the beginning, they allowed senior members to ski free on the weekdays and gave a discount to senior members on the weekends. Last year when they started to charge more and removed the free weekday skiing; the grooming fell off markedly. They took several days to groom after it snowed as compared to how quickly they opened all the trails like the day after a snow prior to then. They did not indicate which trails were groomed/tracked and when you asked bc it was not posted, you often got wrong info. Grooming used to be every day as opposed to every 2 or three days. What got me after the last snow fall was that most of the trails, even major ones , were not done when I got there on Sunday , 6 days after the storm. I do not think it is a winning formula to charge more and groom less. So if you are an intermediate skier, you may have to keep the the circuit trail or the roads. I had bought a season pass, but next year I will not bc it isn't worth it if you can't start skiing the day after it snows.…

Winter and summer we've hiked the trails at Notchview. Well maintained X-country ski trails in the winter.

I visited with my dog on the "dog-side" - it was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful, beautiful vistas and areas, and best of all-- snow! So appreciated having a dog track!
