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]
