Mount Snow Summer & Fall Activities

Mount Snow is best known for its winter activities. However, its best-kept secret is summer and of course, fall foliage is a truly special and spectacular time of year up here in the mountains of Southern Vermont, with the vibrant hues of red, orange, yellow and gold painting the landscapes and making for the most beautiful backdrop to our valley.

Mountain Biking at Mount Snow in Vermont

Mountain Biking

The mountain crosses over from winter to summer by being one of the best mountain bike areas in New England. Try your luck riding up one of their mountain bike trails or choose to take the chairlift up to the top and ride all the way down. Off-mountain there are also plenty of mountain bike trails for all abilities.


Some of the most beautiful golf courses you can find in Southern Vermont. We have two championship courses right here as well as many within an hour’s drive. Take a lesson, go out for the day or hit the range. We’ve got it all.

Hiking in Vermont at Mount Snow

Southern Vermont and its Green Mountains are swarming with great hiking. Hike on Mount Snow along the Lake, or simply in the woods.

Swimming / Lake Access

There are a few public swimming pools available. Most require the purchase of food or drink but what a way to enjoy a hot summer day. Seasons on Mount Snow has its own Sports Center which includes an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. This is included in all short term rentals and a small additional fee for long term rentals.

Better yet, Harriman Reservoir (also known as Lake Whittingham) is just down the road. This beautiful pristine lake offers swimming, boat access, boat and jet ski rentals, kayaking, canoeing and more.

Lake Whitingham / Harriman Reservoir

Harriman Reservoir is the largest lake within Vermont’s borders with 28 miles of essentially untouched coastline. It is open to motor boats, yet still safe for kayakers, canoeing, fishing, and swimming. Here are a few spots to access Lake Whitingham.
