Hogback Mountain is a mountain in southern Vermont, United States, in the town of Marlboro, Vermont, just north of Vermont Route 9. Its main peak is 2,409 feet (734 m) high; the area is well known for expansive views from Route 9.

The Hogback Mountain Ski Area, which operated from 1946 to 1986, was located across Route 9 on Mount Olga.[2] Roughly 590 acres (2.4 km2) was purchased and given to the town of Marlboro as conservation land, known as Hogback Mountain Conservation Area.[2]
