Latest Update:  11/26/2020  9am

We have several snowmaking piles up in Molly’s Meadow.  Haven’t pushed them out as the warm forecast would lead to more melting than if we left them in piles.  Can you ski on it?  Yes, but only about 150 meter loop, and it’s uneven (ungroomed).  So not worth it for most.  Can kids come up and play on it?  Yes, it’s been popular with our kids for sledding and playing around on skis.   When will we make more and be officially open?  Looking at the forecast, we likely can’t make more snow for 6 or 7 days.  Looks like it will get colder towards the end of the 10 day forecast period, so we’ll resume when we can!     

Stay tuned right here for skiing updates.  We are currently building out a new .5km of both snowmaking and lights, so we’ll be up to 2.5km of lighted snowmaking terrain for this winter.   We’ve completed the .5km of new lights and have them fully tested.  They look pretty awesome!   

Season pass holders are welcome to come out and hike/run on the trails before the ski season starts (when there’s no snow on the ground).  We don’t allow the public to hunt on our main 600 acre parcel (but we do allow it on our Hinesburg Hill loop 200 acre parcel).  Always wear orange/bright colors during hunting season when you visit Sleepy Hollow just in case.  

Shop open daily 9am-5pm. (closed now until we get snow)

Open for night skiing Mon, Wed & Friday nights dusk to 8:30pm… (closed now until we get snow)

Don’t forget with your Sleepy Hollow Season Pass you receive:  1.) 20 hours free EV charging in our parking lot.  2.) One free visit to Cochran’s ski area.  3.) A summer pass to Sleepy Hollow (Mtn. bike, hike or run May – Oct.).  4.)  Also one free ski ticket at these areas.  http://skivermont.com/nordic-reciprocal.

Eli’s 10-point Rock Skiing Scale:

  • 10: Should have used my race skis.

  • 9: Very nice skiing, but will see the occasional rock or icy patch.

  • 8: Very good skiing. There may be some bumps, rocks, ice or grassy spots to watch out for, especially on corners.

  • 7: Not too shabby. You might think it’s an 8, but then you snag a rock and fall on your face. It’s a 7.

  • 6: You’re out there thinking is this a 5 or a 6? Then the sun comes out. It’s a 6.

  • 5: Halfway decent skiing…. Still some rocks, grass, ice, or wet spots, but well worth the effort to get out the door.

  • 4: Meh.

  • 3: Fairly bad skiing. May be occasional patches of good skiing, but in general quite rocky, grassy, wet or icy.

  • 2: Pretty bad skiing… Not for beginners, use your most banged up rock skis…. Better than running, barely.

  • 1. I should have gone running
