  • Took the lift up the mountain to see the changing season and it was a nice ride and beautiful scenery. That area is so pretty this time of the year with hills on both sides of the road. 
  • My friends and I came to Bristol to ride the Sky ride. The day was a mixture of sun and drizzle. When we went to get on the ride, it had been raining so the staff nicely dried off the seats for us. We...  more »

  • Way too expensive for what you get. The price for an 8 hour pass has skyrocketed over the years, mainly because there really isn't any competing ski areas nearby. The hills are decent when they groom them but they have a tendency to get icy. Stay away on the nights weekends because it gets absolutely mobbed and they close off a couple of the most popular trails for races pretty much every weekend throughout the winter.
  • Great mountain, but it doesn't feel like a community as much as many other ski areas do.
  • I broke my collarbone in a bicycling accident on October 27th 2015, the doctor says I cannot ski this season while the bone heals. I notified Bristol of this on Nov 12th (before the ski season has begun) with a dated note from the doctor. Bristol has chosen not to refund or credit the $375 PAID IN FULL for a twilight pass. Avoid Bristol at all costs. GREEDY owner/ general manager who would do well to brush up on Customer Service and Client relations. I have been a Bristol client since 1982. A simple 'we're sorry you had an unforeseen accident before the ski season, Bristol hopes you'd come back next season as we understand you've been a client for over 30 years, would you like a refund or a full credit toward your 2016/17 pass' would have been nice. Instead I had to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and my credit card issuer to get my money back from Bristol, before the ski season had begun.... *****Update March 2016*****: The doctor cleared me to return to skiing in March 2016. Over the winter I was contacted by a representative from Swain Resort who offered me the opportunity to visit Swain at a reduced rate and see what Swain had to offer. I am impressed with Swain and have purchased a 2016-2017 daytime & evening Season pass at Swain for $75 LESS than what I was paying at Bristol for NIGHT privileges ONLY (the scraps of what's left over at Bristol). $299 for full access day & night skiing at Swain Vs. $375 for night skiing only at Bristol. I asked a few people within the Swain lodge their thoughts of Swain, a common theme was, no lift lines, good snow conditions. Bristol Mountain's front-office administration simply doesn't understand or care about effective client-retention & relations. BRISTOL is a TERRIBLE BUSINESS to try and work with in a pre-season accident situation
  • My husband and I went for a mini adventure and we where very surprised how much fun we had. I was looking for something different and fun for my birthday this diffently fit the bill. Ethan and Matty where are Canopy Zip line Tour Guides they where friendly, encouraging and so knowledgeable. Felt safe every step of the way. Scenery was beautiful. We already have plans to return to do the Aerial Adventure with the whole family.
  • The skiing is the best in the area, but they sometimes lack on staff. For example, they sometimes don't have enough cashiers and one night the wait time to buy food was 30+ minutes. They felt bad about this and offered a free soda to the parties who were affected by this the following week, so it was a nice gesture. They have two lodges, but often times the second lodge isn't open for serving food. The bathrooms are clean and it is a safe place to leave your skis or snowboard. I'm sure some things are stolen from time to time, but I've skied here for years and never had any problems. They have two express chairlifts and have nearly doubled their total number of runs in the last ten years. They are also the tallest mountain in the area.
