Magic Mountain, located in Londonderry Vermont, has radically expanded their uphill skiing policy.  From now on, it appears that skiers and snowboarders who hike the hill will be allowed a second run on the house, essentially a single ride lift ticket free of charge.  See the Mountain’s press release below:

Magic Mountain Announces Hike One Ride One Uphill Skiing Policy

February 2, 2015 Londonderry, VT: The best uphill policy in the ski business just got better!  Magic Mountain is excited to announce a first of its kind- an expansion of our uphill skiing policy- which already sets the industry standard.  Effective immediately, any uphill skier or splitboarder who successfully climbs the 1,700 vertical feet to our summit will receive a complimentary token good for a single lift ride (limit one per day, valid only same day). Simply announce to the lift operator at the base that you intend to climb up, climb to the summit and our summit lift operator will give you a Free Turns token, which can be redeemed by the previously notified lift attendant for a free ride back up on the chairlift!

Magic Mountain is an industry leader when it comes to supporting uphill skiing.  Magic introduced one of the first official (and least restrictive) policies in 2008 and continues that tradition with today’s Hike One Ride One policy. We believe this program embodies our mountain’s community-driven values and supports our mission of offering affordable, classic Vermont skiing, snowboarding and outdoor recreation.
