Mount Southington open for the season following months of tricky weather

Sports

SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — After months of tricky weather, Mount Southington finally opened up its slopes and welcomed skiers and snowboarders on Sunday morning.

However, things will be different though due to COVID-19 concerns. The ski area is offering advanced online ticketing, outdoor food services, and masks are highly recommended indoors.

Officials say they have had tricky weather over the last few weeks, forcing them to delay their opening. They’re hoping more people come this year than last.

Tyler Kochol, a skier, told News 8, “I’m gonna come here a lot because I have a season pass so I’m gonna be here as much as possible; I just love skiing.”

In total, Mount Southington has 14 trails; only six are open right now. They also have four lifts operating, too.

Mount Southington has also upgraded a number of areas at the ski lodge including an upgrade to the Avalanche Double Chair, enhanced food and beverage services, and new snow-making equipment.
