Vermont’s Magic Mountain Rewards Hiking with Free Lift Ride

By on February 2, 2015 in Freeskiing, Snowboarding with 0 Comments


Vermont’s Magic Mountain is located in south-Central Vermont just a few minutes from Stratton Mountain. The aged ski hill has one of the steepest faces in Vermont and is recognized by locals as offering some of the best, uncrowded powder skiing in the state. Though its lifts are old and slow, the turns are worth the wait. Hence, the resort operators instituted a new policy enabling hikers on skins or splitboards to earn a token for a free lift ride if they actually hike the 1,700 vertical feet of the mountain first. Press release below.


Magic Mountain Announces Hike One Ride One Uphill Skiing Policy

February 2, 2015

Londonderry, VT: The best uphill policy in the ski business just got better!Magic Mountain is excited to announce a first-of-its-kind expansion of our uphill skiing policy, which already sets the industry standard.

Effective immediately, any uphill skier or splitboarder who successfully climbs the 1,700 vertical feet to our summit will receive a complimentary token good for a single lift ride (limit one per day, valid only same day).

Simply announce to the lift operator at the base that you intend to climb up, climb to the summit and our summit lift operator will give you a Free Turns token, which can be redeemed by the previously notified lift attendant for a free ride back up on the chairlift!

Magic Mountain is an industry leader when it comes to supporting uphill skiing. Magic introduced one of the first official (and least restrictive) policies in 2008 and continues that tradition with today’s Hike One Ride One policy.

We believe this program embodies our mountain’s community-driven values and supports our mission of offering affordable, classic Vermont skiing, snowboarding and outdoor recreation.
