  • We have night passes, and find we can do the same number of runs than in less time compared to the daytime. There are rarely any line ups in the evening. We always pack our own food for dinner. The sk...  more »

  • Purchased season pass for my son, it’s unfortunate that they have blackout days and really shouldn’t do so to the people buying season passes. Hil is decent and my son loves the Snowboarding park but,...  more »

  • The quintessential Ontario Skill hill. Tons of upward capacity. Decent runs and terrain. Terrain park is top notch. Food is okay, obviously expensive. Season passes are reasonable. Amazing snow conditions all the time. I like the fact it doesn’t try to be some big fancy resort in the way Blue Mountain tries to be. If I want that experience I am going out west, or out east.
  • The Huber family has owned this resort for 50 years and you can tell that it caters to true skiers. I've been skiing here since the early 80's and every few years they're improving something: new high speed chair lifts, increasing the vertical, buying the private ski resort (Moonshine) next door, new high speed high volume snow making equipment and all from a family business. It's not a Blue mountain with high end shops and fancy restaurants ; I go to the hills to ski not shop, how pathetic. Like I said, this hill is for the true skier, Great variety and elevation, tops in Ontario if not, real close with that family feel.
  • This is one of the best mountains in southern Ontario, period! If you're shocked at the price of anything then obviously you haven't been to a ski hill before. The only thing they could do to make this place better is to be less busy. A suggestion would be to only sell X number of lift tickets per day as they are starting to implement at much larger resorts out west. If you go on a weekday it's much more relaxed with very small chairlift lines.
  • Why 5 stars? There are plenty of slopes and 'lifts'. The slopes were clean and weren't crowded even on a Christmas holidays day. It was more than -20°C but still very enjoyable. The staff are welcoming and the rentals are very good. Additionally, there is a store, a fast food with plenty of space, and a waiting room mostly used by the parents.
  • Incredible place ! I had to rent everything and the staff there was incredibly helpful and the entire process was smooth and quick. And the price is great. The hills are incredible and I will definitely be coming back in the future !!
