Mount Snow, located in southern Vermont in the town of West Dover, is synonymous with great restaurants and night life up and down historic Route 100 along the Deerfield River. After the Dew Tour action at Carinthia, make sure you hit up some of our favorite watering holes and restaurants. Who knows? You might run into some Olympic gold medalists.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Main Base Lodge @ Mount Snow

Featuring 10 beers on top, great snacks and apps, and Saturday après-ski entertainment by Mount Snow legend Bruce Jacques (trust us on this — once you’ve seen his show, you’ll know why he packs ’em in every Saturday). Open daily at 11 am and until 8 pm Friday and Saturday of Dew Tour weekend.
