Snow Trails

History of Snow Trails

Skiing in Ohio really got its start in 1961 when Snow Trails opened its slopes to enthusiastic skiers. Mansfielder's themselves were unprepared for the throngs of visitors on the snowy weekends that followed. Cars with ski racks soon became a familiar sight on the highways around the North Central Ohio area. Many thousands of Ohioans, as well as skiers from neighboring states such as Kentucky, Indiana, and West Virginia, have come to know Mansfield as the "Ski Capital of Ohio."
