“Pine Mountain offers some decent terrain for spring skiing in Southwestern CT.”
— Morgan Patterson
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
Need to Know
Needs to be a high snowfall year. Various cliff bands pepper this ridgeline... be careful!
Starting at the top of Pine Mountain, one can enjoy a nice short technical descent on the southern slope. There are several small cliffs, steeps and even a chute or two. The hill holds several different 'routes' down, all are short and end on Bennett's Pond. It's a great area to take a run or two in the 'CT BC' if you could call it that (which you probably shouldn't).
History & Background
To the best of my knowledge, first ski descent Winter 2015.
