Ski Connecticut

One does not immediately think of skiing when thinking of Connecticut. But skiing fun can be found in the Nutmeg State. One of Connecticut’s ski areas, Mowhak Mountain, can actually lay claim to being the first ski area to use modern snow making.

Connecticut’s ski industry and ski areas are small by the standards of its’ northern New England cousins, but the Connecticut-based alpine or Nordic skier who does not want to make the long trek up north, will find plenty of opportunity to ski at home in Connecticut.
