Located in Connecticut's beautiful northwest corner, and created in 1947 by Skiing Hall of Fame member Walt Schoenknecht, who would later invent snowmaking, Mohawk Mountain is Connecticut's largest and oldest winter sports facility. On the 100+ skiable acres of Mohawk Mountain, skiers can find 24 trails with 6 lifts, along with night skiing on 12 trails. The lodge, with its warm stone fireplace surrounded by antique skis and sleigh, offers a relaxed atmosphere perfect for anything from a steaming cup of hot cocoa to a hearty meal at the cafeteria.

Pros: Close, inexpensive, friendly, pleasant location

Cons: Little challenging terrain

I live in Southern CT, so Mohawk Mtn. is only an hour or so away from me.  It's also affordable, esp. on weekdays when you can ski half a day for $20.  This being the case, I occasionally find myself there when despite being busy I just can't wait to get out to use a new pair of skis/boots/balaclava/etc.  I can leave New Haven in the morning, and be back by midafternoon having skied for four hours.  It's in an area of the state that I really like and the people there have always been very friendly. 

 

The downside, however, is that there just isn't very much terrain.  There most challenging runs have few steep pitches and those they do have are so short that speed control isn't even really necessary.  They tend to groom all of most of the runs as well.  If they let more parts bump up, it might make them a bit more challenging.  Still, spending a morning/afternoon/day there is enjoyable, particularly if you are with someone who is not a great skier and is looking to learn and improve.

 

While most of the terrain marked for advanced skiers is on the lift to the left looking up the mountain, I found some of my best runs came on the lift line trail that followed the other lift.  It isn't turny or technical, but it was a nice place for carving and you could sneak back and forth between it and the adjacent trail with relative ease, which was fun.

 

Overall: not the most challenging terrain, but this is the kind of hill that I like is still around and near me.

Pros: Close, good for beginners/families

Cons: Its Connecticut

Out of all the mountai....I mean hills we have here in Connecticut, Mohawk is my favorite. There is a decent variety of terrain, but I think most advanced skiers would become bored here. Theres a few steep runs, but most of the mountain is just cruisers.  I usually ski at night after I get out of work, and by that time the trails are pretty skied off and become icy. If you can go during the day, for a beginner, or for a family, it'd be a great time. The lifts are dreadfully slow, but then again its not a world class resort that has to move 10,000 skiers an hour. For a quick day/night trip its a good time. Lift tickets are reasonable, and for me, the best thing about Mohawk is how close it is. If Im bored or need to relax, I can be up there skiing in 30 minutes.
