“Expert to Beginner, there is snow here for everyone! and, it's nearby!”
Reviewed February 5, 2011

Because it is tucked away in its own little micro-climate, Maple Corners often has wonderful snow and wonderful conditions than you might expect from somewhere so close to the Connecticut border. If you don't have time to trek to more faraway places, Maple Corners has it all.
The terrain is varied, from deep woods trails, to wide open ones to a huge, flat open field. There are challenging hills and gentle slopes. Trail markings are also good. It's absolutely beautiful! Plus, there's lots of acreage; it never feels crowded out there.
They are expert groomers... it's even fun to watch the snowcat zoom around! Trails are great. The lodge is friendly and cheerful; they serve yummy food and feature pancake breakfasts on winter weekends! (also soups, including vegetable) Warm fireplace burning brightly on weekends, too.
You can rent XC ski equipment and snowshoes as well.
I overheard the owner's response to this question: Has it been really busy and crowded lately? Reply "The conditions are so perfect this year that we've been surprised that more people haven't come. When anybody asks us what are "base" is, we can't tell them: we stopped counting!"
