Stratton Ski Map

Stratton Ski Area

Stratton Mountain in southwest Vermont has a little something special going on that sets it apart from other ski resorts on the East Coast. Maybe it’s the 2,000 vertical feet of skiing, maybe it’s the almost 200 inches of natural snowfall a year, supplemented by an impressive snowmaking system. Regardless, it’s impossible to ski at Stratton without the mountain making an impression on you. Located near Manchester, Stratton has terrain and runs for everyone, from technical expert chutes to terrain parks and unintimidating groomers. And Stratton’s high-speed gondola, combined with a quiver of chairs, ranging from six-packs to doubles, along with surface lifts all make it easy to get back up for another lap or explore the whole mountain.

Stratton has been serving local skiers for sixty years now, with a long legacy of providing a place for skiers of all ability levels to progress. When James Niehues painted this Stratton ski map in 1990, he prepared by taking extensive aerial photographs of the mountain, to make sure that he could create a completely accurate map that didn’t just capture the terrain of Stratton but also reflected its unique geography and personality. And with these prints, you can put a little of that personality in your own living room.
