Snow Trails Terrain Park Ranked in Top Four of Midwest

Share Article

Freeskier Magazine's November edition ranked the best terrain parks in the Midwest worthy of a terrain park visit. Snow Trails, OH was ranked at number four, for their innovative park design, snowmaking, and grooming.

If you pick up this month’s edition of FREESKIER magazine you will discover an article titled “A Guide to Midwest’s Best.” The Guide rates the top six resorts worthy of a terrain park visit.

This Midwestern Survey was one of eight road trips that the FREESKIER magazine team completed to find the best of the best. The FREESKIER magazine team gave high ratings to the Ohio Resort for their attention to detail and the variety of features, placing Snow Trails in the top four, just under Marquette Mountain, Mt Bohemia, and Boyne Mountain, but above Spirit Mountain and Tyrol Basin. According to Freeskier Magazine, Snow Trails is a worthwhile destination for the terrain park enthusiast.

Making the list wasn’t easy. The Midwest has tough competition when it comes to terrain parks and unique features. This applauds the efforts of the Snow Trails staff as they launch their 45th anniversary season.

“Making snow and grooming the slopes is not just a job for us-- it’s a passion, according to Nate Wolleson, Snow Trails Marketing Manager. The 2005-06 season will usher in not only the 45th Anniversary Season for Snow Trails but also five new Super SMI Pole Cat snow machines (for additional snowmaking capacity), but also added lighting for twists and turns under the stars. According to Wolleson, "With increased snow making capabilities the Snow Trails crew will be able to deliver stellar hits, perfect landings, and smooth transitions to and from features. Plus, the lighting will make it easier to show off at night."

Snow Trails, near Mansfield, has been serving Ohio since 1961. There are seven lifts serving 16 runs, including three terrain parks on 50 acres. The resort boasts being "Ohio's first and finest" since it has a reputation for many Midwest firsts, in addition to being Ohio's first ski area. The ski season runs December through March, weather permitting. The resort is located off Interstate 71 south of Mansfield, Ohio on Possum Run road.
