Expect to be greeted by a disheveled looking place. Sign missing letters. All kinds of junk on what appears to be a unused building across from where tickets are purchased. Very dark building where tickets are purchased. Very unfriendly clerk. No welcome to Prospect, no smiles, no enjoy your ski, pricing is quite high . They have a monopoly, so I guess they can. But there are plenty of other places to ski in Vt or Nh where prices are much less? The lodge is dark and definitely 50 years old or more. They serve food which is good, and fits the bill after a day of skiing.

Skiing here is like skiing in a rabbit's warren of trails. Trails come in from all sides after only 2 minutes of skiing. It is pretty basic here. Nothing very challenging. Hills are minimal, it is mostly flat. The Mountain Trail down needs to be reworked so that the turns are easier to navigate. I suspect it is a terrorizing ride for the average tourist. It is old style skiing.
Grooming is good, trails are unchallenging, and is tourist centric.

Prospect Mountain Nordic Ski Center is a terrific place to enjou cross country skiing. They take pride in their well groomed trails. Their site seems to be a natural "snow bowl" as it gets more snow than most places in southern VT. The ski lodge is a great place to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate after a tour of their ski trails. They also serve good food. Try the chili in a bread bowl!

Prospect is a cross country skier's paradise. It has a fantastic trail system, with routes for all abilities -- some quite challenging -- and the grooming is first class. And thanks to the elevation, Prospect gets much more snow than the surrounding areas. It's not unusual to be able to ski into early April, long after all the snow in Bennington had melted. The lodge is a little ramshackle but charming in its own timeless way. No glitz, but good food and a lovely wood-burning stove.

Prospect Mt. frequently has snow when surrounding areas do not and this makes it a good destination for x-c skiing. They do a good job of grooming for both track-set and skate skiing. There is also a spacious lodge where you can get food and they have a ski shop. They are located 7 miles east of Bennington. It is always good to check their event calendar since they host high school and college races and these events can/do interfere with skiing.
