Skiing in Ohio: 4 Places to Hit the Slopes

By Abbey Roy

Posted On: Jan 8, 2021

Whether you exclusively frequent the double black diamonds or prefer to stick to the bunny hills - or even if tubing is more your scene - Ohio has a selection of ski and snowboard destinations to help you have fun this season. Start planning your next adventure with these four Ohio spots. 

NOTE: Check directly with places before your visit to learn about their health guidelines, hours and any adjusted or suspended offerings.

Mad River Mountain in Zanesfield

The lodge at Mad River Mountain offers much more than a place to warm your toes - including a bar and pizzeria with live entertainment and 180-degree views of the surrounding slopes. If you're a newbie, sign up for a group or private lesson; non-skiers can spend the day enjoying the 10-lane Avalanche Tubing Park, the largest of its kin in the state.

NOTE: Face coverings are required to access the mountain, in all indoor spaces, in any line, in chairlifts and gondolas, and whenever you're unable to maintain physical distance. Reservations are required and pass holders will get priority access. All transactions will be cashless. This includes hotels, restaurants, Ski and Ride School and all other points of sale.

Snow Trails in Mansfield

This Mansfield-area resort was the first commercial ski area in Ohio and has been under the same management since the beginning. Take on one of the 17 trails, perhaps the most famous, the Timberline trail, which boasts the title the "Longest Trail in Ohio." Not an avid skier? Opt for the Snow Tubing Park with some of the longest descents in the state!

NOTE: Face coverings are required for all indoor facilities as well as outdoors when social distancing is not possible. Chairlifts should only be ridden with family members or those you're around on a regular basis. Snow Trails is not requiring reservations for skiing or snowboarding.

NOTE: Face coverings are required. Reservations and passes are required, and no lift tickets will be sold in-resort. All transactions on the mountain will be cashless.
