Mount Higby Reservoir is a municipal water supply and is closed to the public. Says Richard
75% of the 88 acres of skiable territory at Powder Ridge is green and blue, delightful for children and beginners. 25% of the runs on the other hand are expert and advanced and delightful for proficient skiers. The nearby ski hill Powder Ridge receives 5 feet of great snow every year. Powder Ridge has 5 ski lifts that serve its 19 runs; the vertical drop is 500
feet. Having a fine time at Mount Higby Reservoir is uncomplicated. Super 8 Cromwell/Middletown is a good site to get some rest; a short journey to Ward Spring is always worthwhile.
