Vertical drop:600 feet
Skiable acres:100
Longest run:3,200 feet

Snow guns began firing at Big Boulder in the early 1940’s, before any other resort in the U.S. Although snowmaking has advanced considerably since that date, the rudimentary snowmaking system in place at the time (based on a garden hose and sprinkler) allowed Big Boulder to survive less than perfect winters.

Today, Big Boulder has state-of-the-art snowmaking (voted among the best in the country a few years ago by SKI Magazine readers) and a sibling mountain, Jack Frost, located six miles away.

Both mountains offer their own snow tubing runs, terrain parks, and half-pipes.

Lodging options include townhomes and condominiums.
