Excellent2014-12-2150Great day skiing at Trapps. There is a white snow line at about 1000 feet and above it it is very wintry. Powder of base, good grooming. One trail sketchy and missing a trail closed sign at one end, but the rest pretty great. Skied until dark.Ari (SkiTrailReport)

Good2012-01-08Trapps has the best snow in New England, which is, sadly, only good. Most of their terrain is open and a lot is in very good shape. Avoid the lower trails (Skaters Waltz) and head for the cabin and higher up where there's been a bit more snow. You can use good skis with some caution and there are icy, snowplowed sections on downhills. There are classic tracks in places and people looked to be enjoying the striding.Ari Ofsevit,
