Best of the East: Mount Snow

Dew Tour. Carinthia Terrain Park. Fast lifts. Mt. Snow Open. Lots of acreage. Mt. Snow has devoted an entire side of its resort to park and pipe, fueling the East Coast fi re that is park and pipe skiing. It may not have the steepest terrain or most snowfall in the East, but the dedication of the park staff is enough to put it atop the list.
