Mt. Ellen

Mt. Ellen’s casual feel speaks to the ski bum—but don’t let that fool you. Mt. Ellen is home to Vermont’s highest chairlift, our premiere terrain park, Green Mountain Valley School's elite ski racing academy, is a designated U.S. Ski Team Development Site and is the northern Vermont location for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. Mt. Ellen tends to be our local's favorite with a greater sense of old-school Vermont charm.
