Beginner

  Snowmaking Groomed Links
Cruiser
Closed
Description

Easiest way down the east side of the mountain. Ideal for those who just graduated from our beginner hill and know how to ride the beginner lift. Great for beginners trying to test their newly found skills . Enjoy lunch on the fabulous Sun Deck at the bottom or enjoy a picnic on a beautiful spring day. Serviced by the Cruiser Quad so families can ride together. Also home to the Cruiser Progression Park so the adventursome set in the family can learn to slide boxes, rails or to take a little air. Enjoy a cruise on this our widest beginner slope

Crosstown
Open
Yes Description

This long beginner trail crosses the mountain providing you with access to 7 trails. Coupled with a trip down Pied Piper and over to Crosstown it makes for our longest run at 1.5 miles. Trail is directly accessible from the Highline Quad. An ideal trail for families with young kids who have graduated from the beginner hill and want to take the easiest route over to Cruiser.

Nuthatch
Open
Yes Description

Named for the bird that climbs down trees head first... not the way we want you to travel this trail! Beautiful and scenic, enjoy your ride with you head up in the air. Set aside as one of our SLOW ZONE trails which make it more comfortable for families and novices. Easily accessable from the Highline Quad chairlift

Images
Pied Piper
Open
Yes Description

Pied Piper leads you gently off the 1800 foot summit to a wide variety of trails. Choose between green, blue or black diamond trail(s) or terrain parks. Serviced exclusively by the TOP FLIGHT Quad chairlift.

Uptown
Closed
Description

There is only one place to go from Uptown and that is downhill after a little climb to reach the trail access from the Triple Chairlift! You can however choose a green, blue, black diamond or a terrain park for your journey. Many park rides in the know use the triple chair and this trail to make fast laps down the Twisted Terrain Park. Serviced by the Overbrook Triple Chairlift. A slight hike up after getting to the top of the chair is needed to enjoy the trip down. The least used trail on the mountain.

Paddy's
Open
Yes Description

Our beginners learning area. Safe, comfortable and wide, offering an ideally short lift ride for beginners. A great place to learn and practice, so you are prepared when you want to move further up the mountain. After mastering this area we would suggest Cruiser or Nuthatch. Serviced by the Paddy Wagon beginner double chairlift.

Images
Scooter
Open
Yes Description

Another beginner area that parallels Paddy's. The wide open terrain is ideal for beginners and 1st Timers. Most of our 1st Timer & Beginner class lessons start here. The area is serviced by 3 learning carpets. This is where to go when you want to introduce skier or riders to the fundamentals.

SKIwee
Open
Yes Description

A small beginner area tucked away to porovide a protected learning area for children in our Adventurers program. No merging trails to worry about. Serviced by its own carpet the terrain is very gentle and idealyy suited for little kids. Provides an awesome place for photos as you have the rest of the mountain as a backdrop.

Dipsy
Closed
Description

A beautiful trail that isn't skied very much. Majestic white pines & stately hemlocks line much of the trail. Close to Cruiser it's best to ride the Cruiser chairlift up and then hang a right off the chair to enjoy this trail. FYI this trail usually has fresh corduroy to offer till noon.
