Mohawk Mountain in Cornwall, Connecticut with 107 ski-able acres and a 650 foot vertical drop, it isn’t much, but it’s what I call home. While it isn’t much, it is in fact one of the largest and snowiest ski areas in CT.
Mohawk offers an intricate lift system servicing 25 trails, all equipped with state of the art snow making equipment.
Mohawk, and the entire Northeast had a slow and warm start to the winter of 2019, but don’t worry it gets better…
Towards the end of December the snow became more plentiful and the temperatures were staring to feel more like winter. This is when I decided that I wanted to become an instructor at this mountain.
I became a snowboard instructor January 1, 2019 at Mohawk.
As the time has gone on I have come to really enjoy the job and the opportunity to introduce people to snowboarding.
It is very rewarding to be able to introduce the sport to people in hopes that it becoming a lifelong hobby for them.
If only my snowboard instructor from when I was 10 could see how much the sport has changed my life.
March 4, 2019, is likely the last big snowstorm of the season for CT, and has set Mohawk for a predicted April 1, 2019, closing date.
It has been a great season working at Mohawk, and hopefully we can keep pushing the season as late as possible. I am also hopeful that my life will lead me down a path that will allow me to work as an instructor again.
Thanks again for taking the time to read this blog. I hope everyone is having a great week. Until next time, love one another and be kind to each other. Get out there, The Thrill of the Mountain is waiting for you. Ski on/ Ride On.
