A Few Words On The Snow

Chasing powder at Mont Sutton doesn't provide the amount of bounty as, say, Alta — where else does? — but skiers at Mont Sutton stand a decent chance of seeing a nice snow event once every seven days. On average, 10.4% of winter days see more than 6 inches of snow — enough for most people to have fun. If you're not having fun, then ski faster. But make sure you're actually good before you ski fast. Really good. Not good? Then go to Mont Sutton and start practicing!

Skiing at Mont Sutton is about getting outside, ripping up the slope, eating chili dogs and getting in as much vertical as you can. It's not about big dumps. And that's okay. This place is about honing your skills for that trip to Snowbird or Alaska. With only 4.6% of months at Mont Sutton getting more than 90 inches of snow, this isn't the place to set up your powderhound shack.

Drought Potential

The snow at Mont Sutton is somewhat dependable, although the threat of a prolonged dry streak is possible when taking a trip here, as 15.3% of its winter months get less than 30 inches of snow.
