Magic Mountain Overview
Magic Mountain prides itself on being a place "where skiing still has a soul.” Located just outside of Londonderry, Magic stands out amongst Vermont's ‘Golden Triangle’ — including Stratton and Bromley, for its unique, laid back vibe coupled with some of the most challenging terrain in Southern Vermont. Magic remains affordable; it is Independently owned and offers 2 days on the Indy Pass. The resort limits sales of season passes and daily tickets to prevent the crowds more typical at neighboring resorts.
Magic's storied history is part of its charm. Though the mountain was abandoned for a few winters in the '90's and had multiple owners in the early 2000's; it has always maintained a passionate and loyal following. In the fall of 2016 Magic was acquired by an investor group led by Geoff Hatheway, and a renaissance has been underway ever since. They've added fixed-grip quads, increased snow-making to cover ~50% of terrain, grooming and the base area are benefitting from ongoing upgrades and night skiing is back.
At the end of the day, relax at the Black Line Tavern and make sure to check out the Grateful Dead inspired swag.
