Suicide Six
Description:

Skiing history was made in Woodstock in 1934 when local residents rigged up a Model T Ford engine at the base of Gilbert's Hill to power America's first ski tow. Two years later, Bunny Bertram opened a commercial ski area just north of Gilbert's Hill which soon became known as Suicide Six. Today, the area offers 23 trails, including a new double black diamond glade trail and a snowboarding halfpipe. It transports its skiers with two chair lifts and a J-bar. The first substantial snowfall in mid-December marks the opening of Suicide Six, and throughout the season skiing and riding are augmented by Mother Nature, snow guns, and superior grooming until closing in mid-March. Suicide Six offers skiing the way it used to be - intimate, uncrowded, and unhurried.

Pros: Nice, family-friendly local ski hill

Cons: Pretty tiny

Suicide Six is a nice little ski hill with just enough variety and size to make for a very fun day of skiing. It's especially nice to take the kids there and enjoy a laid-back, family friendly local atmosphere that's a nice contrast to what you might find a little further west on Route 4. We used to ski here all the time in college; it was fun then, and it's fun now.

 

I like both the runs under the main lifts; Show Off and The Face are challenging enough to keep you interested, and Double Dip is a nice, fun run that takes you right under the eastern lift and accesses the terrain park. Back Scratcher had some nice moguls on it the last time I was there; basically anyone who can ski mildly intermediate terrain can ski all of the blue and green runs at the hill. This is another great reason to take kids there; they can really ski the whole mountain if they want to.

 

I'm also a big fan of the Woodstock Inn, which owns Suicide Six now, so it's a very nice bonus if you're staying at the Inn to get to ski the Six basically for free. Kudos to Woodstock Inn for preserving one of the older and more historic Vermont ski areas. I like the food at Out of Bounds as well; good chili, good drinks, good fare for the kids. Check out Suicide Six if you're ever in the area; it's affordable, it's historic, and it's a fairly uncrowded place to ski with kids.

Pros: Quality ski time, no lines, great seasonal program for kids

Cons: Small hill

Good for a half-day of relaxed skiing.  Go on a weekday and you will have the hill for yourself.  Friday afternoon the place is crawling with school kids for their seasonal program
