Welch Village

  As a lift operator here it looks like the hills are steep as all get out, and the chairs are fast, but we can slow them down for loading, so dont be afraid to ask! Says Jeff Locke.

How is snowboarding there? Says Josh.

Welch Village has an average percentage of demanding runs and an average proportion of easy ski trails. This ski area has a decent mixture of ski trails and an ok sum of ski lifts. A 360 foot drop from top to bottom is unsurprisingly
    not that much, but Welch Village has so many other wonderful attributes. Welch Village has the most sizeable elevation difference for 112 miles. The annual snowfall is lower than average at Welch Village. All in all there are 60 slopes
to choose from; there's a splendid mixture to gratify everyone. The 4 feet of good snow that falls here yearly doesnít sound like heaps, but it's pretty okay.
