Snow Trails, which was the first commercial ski area in Ohio, is a privately owned resort, under the same management since inception. The resort features six chairlifts, including a slow moving Beginner’s Double Chairlift and two newly added ski carpets dedicated to the Beginner's Area Complex, and a third carpet lift utilized for the Snow Tubing Park with the "Longest Tubing Lanes in Ohio." Two new trails were recently added to include Timberline, the “Longest Trail in Ohio,” bringing total trails to 17, with three glade ski areas, plus the addition of a fourth terrain park this season. A 9,000 sq. ft. Rental Center houses user friendly equipment and offers a self service system. The resort typically opens in early December and the season lasts into March. The resort is located off Interstate 71 south of Mansfield on Possum Run Road. For more information call 800-OHIO-SKI or visit
