Event Information:

Stratton Mountain is more than a ski resort. It's a mountain resort offering you freedom to explore nature with amenities close at hand. Play tennis, go hiking or kayaking, then relax with your family and hike or ride in our gondola to the summit. You will see views only the highest peak in Vermont's Green Mountain range can provide. Stratton was established in 1961, and expanded rapidly into one of Vermont's largest ski areas. In the early 1970s, following development of the initial terrain, Stratton began to develop a new beginner area; this opened in 1972 with additional trails, though plans for a new lift were not realized. In the late 1980s, Stratton constructed new terrain to the south of the main mountain, and dubbed it "Kidderbrook." The expansion included a new quad chairlift, and was planned to be a starting point for potential additional terrain and housing in the area, though this never occurred. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the ski area constructed several new high-speed six-person lifts, and in 2007, the Kidderbrook Quad was removed and sold, as it was underused and Stratton's parent companies were in financial trouble at the time.

Stratton has 92 trails over 600 acres (240 ha) of skiable terrain, 95% of which has snowmaking. 42% of the trails are rated as easy, 31% are intermediate, and the remainder are advanced. There are fourteen lifts, which can transport 33,528 people an hour. The mountain's base is at 1,872 ft (571 m) and the summit is at 3,875 ft (1,181 m) for a vertical drop of 2,003 ft (611 m).[4] Stratton has an average annual snowfall of 180 inches (460 cm).
