Woodbury has two mountains offering a tubing park, skiing, and snowboarding trails, although the area attracts more amateurs and families than those who are looking for a serious winter ski experience.

Heading west, Hartford winter enthusiasts have a choice of two major resorts, with Mount Southington featuring a Drop Zone terrain park that has become a particular favorite of snowboarders, More winter fun awaits at Ski Sundown - only a half hour's drive from downtown Hartford - offering 15 ski trails (14 of which are illuminated, for night runs) and 2 terrain parks.
