Snow Trails, Ohio

Steeper Hills, Deeper Snow

Snow Trails is conveniently located just south of Mansfield in north central Ohio.

As you turn into the Possum Run Valley, the hills suddenly get steeper and the snow gets deeper.

Seems like you are away from everything, and whether you come to ski or just to see, you will find yourself relaxed and refreshed.

To make skiers happy, Mother Nature needs a lot of help around here, so the snowmakers turn on an "old-fashioned winter" every chance they get. Snow Trails' system is the largest, most advanced in Ohio.

Whether you come alone, with a friend or with the whole family, you will have a good time skiing on the slopes or relaxing in the rustic day lodge.

On the upper floor you can enjoy a stein of beer, a cup of spiced wine or a cocktail. Huge picture windows face the slopes so you can watch the activity on the hills. A spacious sundeck helps you keep a winter tan.

Ohio's first ski resort is also the best equipped for your skiing and snowboarding pleasure and relaxing fun.

Six chairlifts, broad slopes and a warm and comfortable day lodge offer fine skiing, casual comfort and the "gemutlich" atmosphere of a European resort. Friendly and capable Snow Trails' staff make your visit pleasant and enjoyable.

Night skiing has a special thrill of its own -- the sparkling snow, the starlit sky and the crisp night air provide a delightful experience.

From Cleveland or Columbus, Ohio, take I-71 (south or north) to Exit 169. Turn towards the BP gas station and then onto Possum Run Road. The ski area is on the right.
