Based on some very old reviews of this facility, my family and I were a little hesitant about our January 11, 2008 weekend trip to the Snow Lake Lodge at Mount snow but we were pleasantly surprised and quite satisfied by what we found. Peak Resorts now looks after the property after American Ski Company's sale and we found that the facility received much needed maintenance and a little spruce-up. All the staff were extremely friendly and quite accommodating to our requests. Our lodge room (417) although not glamorous was quite adequate, clean and met our expectations for a 'Value' Room for our two evening stay. The beds were firm and the pillows were your standard fare. The bathroom showers had plenty of hot water and there was ample ability to control the temperature of the room. Some of the carpeting had been stained and one of the towel bars in the bathroom was a little loose but the room was just right for me my wife and our seven year old.
The amenities at the lodge included an outdoor hot tub, and very large and well maintained indoor hot tub and indoor sauna with Men's Women Locker Room. In the morning there was a well stocked continental breakfast on the first floor Main Lodge Great Room which included a fireplace and separate seating area with large screen TV.
With regards to location of the property, the Snow Lodge is perfectly located near the base of the mountain and accessed via the local community transit system called the 'Moover'. It's also a short 15 -20 minute ride over to the Stratton Mountain ski area which makes this a perfect alternative to some higher priced accommodations in the area.
It is also worth noting that because this property seems to be an economical property for the budget conscious skier, they tend to book ski clubs and school ski trips into the facility which could be problematic at certain times in the evening, which we found were handled quite well by the organized trip leaders and chaperones.
In conclusion, we found that the 'Bad' reviews posted on the web about this classic property at the Mount Snow ski area were a little over the top and that that this facility should be a fair consideration for those skiers seeking a quick get away to the southern Vermont ski region.
