Magic Mountain Description:
Voted Top 20 US Resort by Ski Magazine, Magic Mountain is undoubtably a resort where skiing still has its soul.
People often ask, what makes Magic so different? It all starts with the mountain itself. When Hans Thorner was searching Vermont to start a ski area in the late 1950s, he found Glebe Mountain, home of Magic Mountain Ski Area. Its ridge lines and steep topography reminded him of his native Swiss Alps.
The trails he cut for Magic are naturally narrow and twisting and descend 1,500 heart-pumping vertical feet to two Summit lifts—true vertical skiing. Combined with tree-skiing from boundary-to-boundary, Magic’s terrain is what separates this ski area from all others in southern Vermont and the East Coast—virtually unchanged since the 1960s.
Not ready for aggressive terrain just yet? Magic's team of instructors will provide you with a strong set of skills, techniques and understanding to get you where you want to be as a skier or snowboarder. The Nelson Family Learning Area has been designed to give beginners a safe space to learn fundamental ski and snowboarding skills.
A little bit of something for everyone... from classic winding 60’s-era beginner and intermediate trails to some of the most gnarly steeps and treeskiing on the East Coast, Magic has it all. With 1,500′ vertical runs accessible by two base to summit lifts, and an 800′ base to mid mountain lift, your legs may give out before you ever get tired of all the different terrain accessible at this “mid-sized” ski area. And, with Magic's skier capacity limits, there’s little wait time to get after it all! Experience the difference a little Magic makes.
