It's a good place to learn to hit the park. Every feature was a ride on and different size jumps BUT there must be no park crew because nothing was groomed. I actually wanted to ask for a shovel to fix the features I wanted to hit. I took off my snowboard and used it to fix some of the ramps and landings..lol

A couple crazy things about the place were that there was no restroom inside the so called lodge. The restrooms were outside in a huge port-a-potty kind of thing. There really wasn't anyplace to change or sit and eat. There was a little place to sit in the rental building with benches but no tables.
Like the dude said on the last page, its definitely over priced. Glad you had a better experience than me hah!

FaceplantMaster Hmm... all this hate about southington is weird, me and my friends go there all the time, and twice we had our stuff returned when we accidentally dropped it. The first one was a phone and second one a wallet with everything still inside. I dont know about boards though but we never got ours stolen and all our boards were bought new, though we pretty much trashed them by now. Never been to Ski Sundown btw but with the distance I have to drive there, might as well hit wachusett.

I can't see anything in CT worth the money. Sundown used to be fun until this year when they thought they were a serious mountain and started charging nearly $60. Fuck that. The difference in gas money alone will get you to a real mountain.
most of the places in Ct offer some ok deals on either 2hr or early weekday lift tickets. i'm a nurse and work second shift so i'm just looking for a close park i can practice on during the week before i go into work. I have every sunday and monday off of work so I'm at Mt.Snow's Carinthia every monday riding with my buddies that work there

Precisely. I went to southington once and I'm never going back. I've been hounding sundown for a student ID discount and they said they may implement that next season.

Bertieman Ski sundown is a bit further from you, but that place has some nice small jumps and rails all along a green run (and 1 box that I know of). 30 mins past ski sundown is berkshire east, which I've been going to quite a bit. Berkshire east has a nice small section for jumps, rails and a box. Good luck!

lol......all i'm really interested in is the park. Southington's park is pretty good. mostly streetstyle features but wish there were some easier boxes to learn new tricks on though.
thanks on the heads up on the thieving part..i'll make sure i lock up my board
