  • A ski area really close to everything!! I loved the reception, especially for my daughter it was beginner. The instructor was super nice and patient with her. The only value that is not so nice. But it must be by the fact of being close to town.

  • Small convenient mountain in CT. Not as large as a 2hr drive up to VT would get you, but it's good for a night session after work within a half hour drive for me. There are day and night session passes, and they have adequate lighting, snowmakers, and even a few jumps and rails. It's a great place to learn, but if you want big mountains and long runs, gotta take that drive up north.
  • Nice family place, never too crowded. Safe to let the kids go an ski on their own. The staff is super courteous. Bar can open late or not at all, so if you want to imbibe you may have to BYOB...
  • I really like this place. I have gone here 2 times during the week (a Friday and a Thursday) and it's not crowded. Get there by 10 and you have a good 2 hours of your own private mountain. Place tends to get busy once schools let out.
  • Volunteer Ski Ranger for 8 years now. Gr8 place to teach youngsters to ski or ride. And save loads of travel up north time if you live in CT. Many days the snow quality matches or exceeds what is in VT or NH.
  • For skiing in Connecticut it's a fun location with some pretty good hills. The park is always being improved with new additions throughout the winter.
