Alpine Skiing

Alpine skiers have been thrilled about Ascutney’s varied terrain and friendly appeal for over 60 years. Building on this tradition, Ascutney Outdoors offers a 1,800’ Doppelmayr T-bar that serves:

  • 8 trails
  • 26 acres of skiable terrain for all ability levels
  • a 450-foot vertical drop
  • the longest run of 3100 feet. 

Our lifts are adjacent to the Ascutney Outdoors Center, which is a wonderful gathering place to warm up and relax.

SKIING: Special COVID-19 Considerations

  • You may download a copy of our Covid Rules
  • Tickets will be issued only at the lower level of the AOC.
  • Everyone coming to the mountain will be required to provide AO with contract tracing information (name, email, phone) and attest compliance with Vermont’s travel and quarantine policies.
  • Supporter Pass holders can provide contact information just once, at the start of the season.  Day Ticket T-bar skiers will need to provide the information each time they purchase tickets.  We encourage daily users to print out and complete the Contact Form before arriving at the ticket line.  Backcountry users should sign in and provide contact information.
  • Face coverings are required when purchasing tickets, in lift lines and waiting areas, and when loading.
  • Use of the AOC is restricted per current regulations.  Bathrooms will be made available.
  • Current plan is for only a single person on each “T” – unless from same household or cohort.
  • T-bar loader will be masked.  Mid-Station and Upper attendants must mask if offering assistance to a “down” skier but not required otherwise.
  • We will wipe down the lower portion of “pole” and “seats” prior to running each day.

Hours of Operation

Our operations are dependent on volunteers and natural snow conditions and may change at any time.  Please check ahead on the News section on our Home Page or Facebook for the most up-to-date information on operations.

Saturday and Sunday afternoon from Noon until 4PM during the season.

Friday from 2PM until 4:30PM – Community Skiing on the Rope Tow.  A time for kids and families.  No charge but we welcome donations.

We also plan to be open on Monday, February 15th for Presidents Day, but no other weekdays during the season.
