When summer hits New England, most people don't think about hitting the slopes. Ski resorts are typically winter hot spots for skiers and boarders, but one Connecticut mountain has a whole new way to 'slide.'

While many Northern New England resorts are adding mountain coasters, Powder Ridge Park in Middlefield, CT is once again adding slides.

Massive, inflatable, mountainside slides.

Yes, this summer you can literally slide down a mountain on a mini inflatable river of water. Head first optional.

Powder Ridge first rolled out the inflatable slides in 2022 and people loved it. So back by popular demand, the mega waterslides are returning later this month for another outdoor summer of fun.

The park doesn't stop there though. To make your two hour road trip from the SouthCoast worth it, there is also a mountain bike track, disc golf course and zip lines directly over the waterslides.

So while the waterslides at Water Wizz are certainly closer and the inflatables in Cape Cod are bouncier, these mountainside waterslides are definitely a new way to enjoy some summer fun in New England.

Slip and Slide Down This Connecticut Mountain

Waterslides are nothing new, but the inflatable slides at one Connecticut ski resort are definitely changing the way people hits the slopes this summer.

Just a short drive up I-195 is a day of family fun just waiting to happen. The Cape Cod Inflatable Park has added the Wicked Waves Water Park for summer 2022, joining the Lazy River, water inflatables, trapeze setup, ninja warrior obstacle course and arcade already at the West Yarmouth park.

It is staycation fun for the whole family that you just have to see to believe.

Complete Guide to New England Mountain Coasters and Alpine Slides

Just because the snow has melted doesn't mean there isn't fun to be had on mountains across New England. Many resorts offer off-season activities such as hiking, biking and ziplining.
There are also a handful that use their mountainsides for sliding down in a totally different way. Mountain coasters and alpine slides use gravity to allow riders a speedy descent while seated and these are the mountains you'll find them on in the Northeast.
