Ascent Trip Report

Mount Snow Ski Resort, located about 10 miles North of Wilmington on hwy #100, offers numerous hiking trails ... information is available at the Grand Summit Hotel's Sport shop.

From behind the Sports Shop I climbed the moderate Long John trail(#B) up the Southeast ridge to the Summit Lodge, then West about 1/4 mile (beyond Sunbrook Station) to the wooded summit ....the last 100 feet is a bushwack to a glass canister (VT's 3000 foot club) hanging on a tree. I descended on the moderately steep Snowdance trail(#E). 3 1/2 hour RT.

This Peak completes all of the ranked peaks on my PB List "Vermont 3500-foot Peaks" .... there are however, a number of unranked peaks that have to be climbed before I can say my "List" is fully complete.
