Stratton Mountain, Vermont

At some ski resorts, beginners are relegated to a handful of short trails at the bottom of the mountain, but Stratton gives newbies the summit. Mike’s Way begins on the highest peak in southern Vermont, with views that stretch into the Adirondacks and winds down the face of Stratton, delivering beginner skiers into a bevy of mellow trails and meadows that stretch into Stratton Village. And it’s all groomed to perfection, proving that Stratton’s reputation for primo corduroy is well-deserved. Match the copious terrain with an award-winning ski school and a dedicated beginner’s park, and you’ve got the ideal ski experience for new skiers and boarders.
