This week's Take Us Along Winner is Sherm Jenne of Vincennes, Ind., who took Indiana Auto & RV along on a trip to Mount Snow in West Dover, Vt., last winter. He is shown holding both Indiana magazines as the snow machine runs in the background.
Mount Snow has an express chair that holds six people at a time. Jenne understands there are only two of these in the world.
Mount Snow was founded by Walter Schoenknect and first opened for skiing on Dec 12, 1954. Prior to the name change it was Mount Pisgah. A little known fact is the mountain is not named after the white stuff that people rely on for successful winter businesses, it is named after the farmer that Schoenknecht purchased the land from, Rueben Snow.
Jenne writes, "Mount Snow is about 1,000 miles from Vincennes. We had a place in East Dover, just a few miles away from Mount Snow in West Dover."
Mount Snow is located in the Green Mountains and is in the Green Mountain National Forest. While the area receives over 150 inches of snowfall, some 80 percent of the snow is made by machine. The area has 588 acres of skiable area with over 100 runs. The longest run is Long John at 3.1 miles.
Thanks for taking us along!
