Pros: Very close to CT coastal areas.

Cons: Very Small.

A nice little area for a quick day trip when the urge hits you.

Just pack up the gear and the kid, and in under 90 minutes (if you live in the CT coastal towns) you are on the slope.

 

Perfect day trip location.

Not suitable for extended stay, but if you have "little ones' - this ski area could be perfect to get the kids started on their lifetime enjoyment of skiing and snowboarding.
