  • Great little ski mountain. The snowmaking is awesome for a little place, probably the best man-made snow around. (we need help some winters). I remember the crowds in the old restaurant (pub) and hope...  read more »
  • Located less than hour north of Albany, NY West Mountain Ski Resort is convenient and the slopes are good to excellent. It is great for intermediate, and advanced intermediate with some expert trails....  read more »
  • I'm giving this ski resort a review even though I didn't ski there. The ski resort from what I talked to from the locals gears more to families and doesn't have the bling like Gore Mt. I didn't check ...  read more »
  • Thanks to the new management team, West Mountain has catapulted up near the top of my small mountain, close to Albany ski trips list. A quality hill that has improved nicely over the past few seasons. Definitely a great value I would recommend to any beginner or intermediate skier (or advanced skier looking to have fun with less advanced friends/family).
  • Not tons of trails but management is great and the restaurant is nice. Cafeteria downstairs is also very nice
  • Great mountain, absolutely major improvements this year, snowmaking is now constant with 25 brand new high end guns. New LED lighting covers the entire face, all of it, and is very bright. New lift is better than the last, but not the best. Current Northwest lift sucks, but next year they will be replacing it with the rest of the new lift that they didn't use and creating another lodge. Fantastic mountain.
  • Best place for sking locally
  • What a misery... My wife and I were away from our kids for the weekend in the Lake George area. We went to West to go tubing (2/28/15). They're supposed to have 4 long runs and 4 shorter kids runs. All 4 kiddie runs were open, but of the 4 adult runs, 2 were closed, 1 was open for kids only, and 1 was open for adults and groups. It was a busy day, and as a result, my wife and I managed 2 runs in 1 hour. After deciding it was pointless to continue, we went down to the main desk to complain and see if any accommodation could be made. There were already others there to complain. The manager did a lot of head nodding and stuck to the no refund policy. She wasn't empowered to do anything, and called her supervisor down, who proceeded to tell us tubing was popular and it was a busy Saturday. When we pointed out that there was effectively 1 run available for about 100 people, he went on about the safety of the other runs. It was clear they were understaffed, but he insisted that wasn't the problem. I get a no refund policy, but when you completely fail to deliver on what's promised...They knew 3 of the 4 runs were closed when they happily took our money. The manager wasn't authorized to comp anything, refund anything, do anything. All she could do was take phone numbers from everyone who was complaining, so that she could get authorization from the owner of the place to offer complimentary passes for another day. Apparently, she was unable to reach the owner while everyone was there, but was going to be magically able to do so once we all left. Unfortunately, a comped ticket would be useless to us, since we were in the area for the weekend and were leaving the next morning. So, we were screwed out of around $40, and West loses future ski business from our family of 5, and anyone else we can steer away from them.
