5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Minus Zero Festival

Smiles are growing and excitement is peaking for this year’s Minus Zero Festival, April 7-8. make the most of your Minus Zero Festival with these tips from a local.

  1. What to do upon arrival – Grab a parking spot by the base and stop by the Welcome Center to have all your questions answered and get tips from the locals. We’ve got lots of people around the mountain looking to help you enjoy your weekend and make the most of your time at Stratton.
  2. Where to go first – Hop on the gondola (with or without skis) and cruise up to the summit stage and enjoy the tunes as you get in those turns before the lifts close at 4 pm. If you’re skiing or riding, Mike’s Way and the Meadows are some Stratton favorites if you’re looking for an easy way down the mountain. On the other hand, experts can enjoy carving turns town Black Bear, Tamarack, and Standard for those seeking a steeper pitch to hold those edges. If you’re just here to enjoy the tunes, hop back on the Gondola for a scenic ride down southern Vermont’s tallest peak. HSP2016_1548-2250px
  3. Where to eat – Grizzly’s at the base of the mountain is our go-to for lunch. Enjoy some loaded nachos or an oven-fired flatbread on the deck while jamming out to music on the main stage. For dinner, visit the Village for a variety of eateries. Some of our dinner favorites are Mulligans and Firetower, both offer some apps and entrees to keep you dancing all night long.
  4. Where to go before the headliners – Grab your gang and play a round of pool at the Green Door Pub. This is a great chance to get off your feet and indulge in some great drink specials. With the cheetah carpet and vintage snowboards, this is a corner of the mountain that has just as much personality as it does swag. HSP2016_1133-2250px
