Powder Ridge

  Powder Ridge is closed for season due to pending sale. Says jm.

The 19 ski slopes at this ski mountain are fine to ski on. The yearly snowfall is less than average at this ski hill. This ski area has a somewhat humble collection of trails and an ok amount of great ski lifts. With a 500 foot height difference it's not the tallest hill there is, but Powder Ridge makes up for it in other ways. With a ski terrain of 88 acres, it makes for a peaceful skiing experience.
    Snowboarding and skiing in this region is a lot of fun the whole winter. The best piece of information on this resort is unsurprisingly the trailmap of Powder Ridge on this web page. The 5 feet of wonderful snow that falls here annually
is unsurprisingly not outstanding, but not that bad either. A fine workout and a chance to spend some time in the wilderness will have you returning. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, in this general vicinity, you'll run into lots of ski resorts. Powder Ridge has a much lower than average fraction of difficult runs and a much higher than average share of easy trails. The nearest ski hill featuring a more soaring height difference is 25  
miles away. All 5 different ski lifts at this ski area are enjoyable to take a ride with. This is a smaller than average ski area featuring a quite petite height difference if compared to other east coast ski hills. The winter in Connecticut is truly a good time of year for snowboarding or skiing. A heap of skiers travel up here from Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, particularly on the weekends. No lack of fine rooms, but if you donít have reservations, you may end up slumbering in your vehicle. Powder Ridge is a family friendly ski resort with a load of green and blue ski runs.
