Member Spotlight: Snow Trails

Skier in a teal coat goes down a hill with the wood paneled ski lodge in the distance.Open December through March, Snow Trails is Ohio’s premier resort for skiing, snowboarding, and snowtubing. Nestled in the serene Possum Run Valley – one of the coldest in Ohio – the resort occupies one of the best spots in Ohio for making and maintaining snow. Their state-of-the-art equipment helps too! As the first commercial ski resort in Ohio, innovation is in their blood. Snow Trails has a reputation for leadership in their field in adapting to the latest and best snowmaking technology. This has made them known for their superior skiing conditions and for being open longer than other ski areas in the region.

Learn to ski! Make use of the spacious rental center and lessons for all ages from friendly instructors. The beginner’s area has been upgraded to include two Surface Conveyor Carpet Lifts and Beginner’s Double Chairlift. Snow Trails features a total of 17 slopes, 3 glade skiing areas, 4 terrain parks, 6 chairlifts, and 2 surface conveyor lifts – all 100% lighted for night skiing.

The Vertical Descent Snow Tubing Park is always a hit with families and offers a perfect snow experience for anyone, no skill required! Complete with a tubing lodge, outdoor fire pit, and snack bar, they have everything you need for winter fun. Choose from a variety of lanes with unique rollers and surface conditions that range from moderate to fast. And don’t miss out on the Glow Tubing on specific days. Plus, there’s no dreaded uphill trudge as the tubing park has its own dedicated surface carpet lift.

If you need to get out of the cold, step into the full-service ski shop or one of the restaurants and bars in the lodge. The Last Run Bar & Deli is the perfect place to meet friends and family at Snow Trails. With table-service dining, a full bar, and slope-side views, it’s the best area to take a break from the slopes. The Snowflake Loft Bar is the hot spot of resort activity. Grab a drink at the bar, a seat by the freestanding fireplace, and listen to live music every Saturday night.

Quaint enough to take you away and close enough to call it home, come out for good times and great vibes with on-snow events, activities, and live entertainment throughout the winter.
