  • 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...  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....  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 ...  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).
  • 5 stars because the new ownership (3 yrs ago) has been trying very hard and it shows. They are still investing in improvements (new trails, better lifts, lights & snowmaking) despite last Winter's relative lack of snow. Less than an hour from capitol of NYS, Albany, West is a real asset for the region.
  • 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
