Saskadena Six is one of the most family-friendly ski areas in Vermont. With 30% beginner, 40% intermediate and 30% advanced slope ratings, there’s a safe trail for the skier of every age and ability. And the men and women of our Ski Patrol are readily available to assist you in choosing the trail that best matches your ability.
Our trail grooming and snowmaking capabilities insure that you and your family can plan on an exhilarating day of skiing or riding. And you’ll be sharing a family experience that dates back to Wallace “Bunny” Bertram, who opened the first ski lift on Hill No. 6 (thus, the name) back in 1936.
And snowboarders are welcome on the same slopes that proudly hosted the first National Snow Snurfing (the original name) competition in 1982!
