  • The resort may be called bristol mountain but it would be more appropriately named bristol hill as the summit is only 660m above sea level. This means that none of the pistes are very long and you spe...  more »
  • I went skiing here for the first time since moving to Central New York. It is a medium sized venue with lots of green and blue runs. The day I was there all was well groomed and not too crowed (it was...  more »
  • Love this ski hill. Highest vertical in the area and typically not as crazy busy as others. Great runs and well maintained. The new advance purchase discount is a good money saver and the Sat and Sun ...  more »

  • We love Bristol Mountain! I feel especially compelled to write this review to compliment the exceptional customer service we have had there this season. My son broke his wrist snowboarding, and they were very accommodating to extend his passes we bought through school for next year (I provided physician's note). THEN, last weekend, we misplaced our vertical lift card that still had two 4 hour lift tickets on it. With proper ID, they were able to look us up and we were on the slopes within a few minutes. They also have great learn to ski programs, with great, patient instructors. We always have a great time, and I highly recommend visiting! I can't wait to go this summer to give the aerial adventures a try!
  • My daughter & son started skiing at the end of this winter season. The quality of instruction is superb! The attentive instructors provide not only adequate attention, but motivate the children to excel. Extremely personable and friendly staff. The entire staff actually cares about their guests! Very calm and relaxed atmosphere. The elderly lady (I cannot recollect her name unfortunately) who checked us in was super nice! She, is a complete gem! My daughter was paired up with an instructor Emily. Emily was not only motivating my daughter but consistently and constantly ensured my daughter progressed and excelled to the next level. So unexpected but much appreciated without even being asked Emily took video of my daughter so that I could see her progress while skiing! I cannot stress how AWESOME EVERYONE was even the male instructors in the ski camp that both my kids were in! BRAVO for hiring caring, motivated & dedicated staff and instructors! What a great asset all of them are!!!
  • Bristol is one of the better small mountains in the Northeast. If you're in the upstate area it's really your best option. However. Their lift ticket prices reflect that with prices you would expect to pay at bigger mountain s. Even their Saturday deals require you buy 3 tickets for a decent price. You constantly see people trying to peddle the extra ticket they had to buy.
  • great potential! Unfortunately the weather was terrible the day before, drizzling rain which then dropped in temperature created lots of ice. It is hard to know what the mountain did to groom and improve their conditions but only 1 easy run was enjoyable. The others were solid ice and difficult to ski. I'm surprised that they only managed to take care of one run. 2 lifts were shut down and some others runs blocked off/closed. Very disappointing. If they had shown more effort to improve the runs I would have given 4 or 5 stars. The place was beautiful and I was just disappointed to not be able to go on more than the one run. Even milky way was so hard that once my kids fell, they never wanted to go back as it hurt, where as the one green that was well maintained was safe and fun, just needed a bit of variety! How does a family plan for this? Travelling from Toronto, is was quite disappointing.
  • I give it 4 stars because they do not seem to be accustomed to foreign accents. My accent is strong but my english is excellent, however they continued and kept asking as if I were talking "Martian". Disorganized in directing people for the first time to the place where they should go. For the rest there was another member of the staff who behaved marvelously, making every effort to understand us, including getting a waterproof trousers for my friend's daughter so that she could ski. Excellent facilities, clean bathrooms, magical views, super parking. A bit expensive considering that they are not the French Alps.
