The first thing on any downhill skier’s wish list is a foot of fresh snow; the next is short lines at the lifts. Vermont’s Suicide Six Ski Mountain can’t do anything about the weather, but from January to March during the 2014 ski season, it has a new group program that can take care of those pesky lines.
For the first time, corporate groups staying at the Woodstock Inn & Resort in Woodstock, Vt., which owns Suicide Six, have the opportunity to rent the entire ski mountain.
The buyout is available on Mondays only, at a cost of $7,500. The package includes exclusive use of the mountain (for up to 200 people) and ski passes, ski and snow-shoe rentals, a coffee and hot chocolate break, meeting and banquet setup (at the resort or the Suicide Six base lodge), a shuttle to other resort amenities, and an activity director who can set up ski races or otheractivities. The 100-acre mountain offers 23 trails, two chair lifts, and a J-bar.
