Soldier Mountain is a small "mom & pop" ski hill just an hour from my house. These gems are fading with all the big budget ski resorts. I love supporting and riding at these types of small operations. I bought a season pass and by my second time coming through the lift line the lift attendant all ready knew my name and was waving me through. I true locals spot. Yes there is only 2 love seat style Slow lifts but the terrain is pretty fun with most people staying and the beating path. Just like any small ski hill, if you can look behond the obvious...you might find some good stashes. This was my first day riding here and I found plenty. The snow was heavy wet hot pow, but better than no pow.
