  • Visited for the timber festival. There were not enough vendors or displays to make it more than an average event. Did enjoy the lumberjack show, chair ride was good, good selection of foods to try. Bu...  read more »
  • Went for the timber festival. $15 a person. Not worth the 30 minute visit. I expected a lot more. Lumber jack show was good but again not worth $15 for just that. 
  • Shawnee Mt, what can I say but it has changed- The kids are out of control on the slopes and there are not a lot of Ski patrol to maintain order. On several occasions, I almost got hit by kids flying ...  read more »
  • I set up group trips for my Scout Troop and the team there (Alycen!) does a fantastic job making all the moving parts work out for both the Adult volunteers and our Scouts. Great place to learn and have fun -- they do a wonderful job helping everyone get situated as well as putting down new snow. This was our 3rd time to Shawnee, and it appears we will come again next year.
  • Shawnee is a great ski resort. In the off season the hold a ton of festivals and fireworks for 4th of July. The bar area has a great variety of beers.
  • My husband and I went here on 2/13/16-we had already purchased our vouchers online for the beginners skiing lessons prior to arriving-saved us about $10 and some time upon arrival. I definitely recommend getting there at least 45min before the lesson time as there is some paperwork and equipment rental logistics to get done before going out to the snow. This was our first time skiing and our instructor Valentino was awesome! He was very patient an informative-the lesson was about 1hr and 45min-well worth it if you have never gone skiing before. Definitely recommend going in the appropriate attire, ski pants, ski googles, heavy duty gloves and something to cover your face-it is cold out there!! The one downfall we would say is that the food is extremely over priced- we paid $30 for two bottled waters, two hamburgers, two fries and one order of chicken nuggets-all in a school cafeteria setting and the food wasn't that great. However we did notice there seemed to be a restaurant there too but it was quite hidden-perhaps next time. The slopes were great! Other than that it was a very fun new experience for us and we hope to come again soon.
  • Not a luxury resort but definitely cost effective and great for families. Good for beginners with bunny and green slopes. It can get a bit crowded but the lines aren't terrible. You can bring your own food. Recommended.
  • Good ski area for beginners, bunny slopes can get overcrowded though.
