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.
