  • I have been meaning to go here with some friends and we finally. The terrain is absolutely wonderful. While the place does lean towards expert skiers, there is great learning and intermediate terrain for everyone. It is such a safe and welcoming place, a true community that I plan to become a member of. To summarize it, I got a slice of pizza and the woman at the register thought the slice was too small, so she took a dollar off. I then went downstairs to get my skies tuned and waxed and he thought my skis were in great condition, “save the money and do something else”, so I donated to the ski patrol raffle. This place is a gem, especially for families and expert skiers. You can tell that a family owns and runs the place, you are home.
  • Great "old school" ski areas with challenging steeps, fun glades, and a quaint atmosphere. Parking can be limited, especially if you are interested late. But crowds are rarely an issue. Visit after a storm to get the best out of this mountain.
  • Such a great small mountain. A nice sense of family and friendliness. All the employees are helpful and nice. The skiing is the best in the catskills. Not a lot of vertical but the lift lines are short and the terrain is steep and challenging. I grew up skiing this mountain and your kids should too if you want them to become first class skiers. The reason it is not 5 stars is because the trails could be more diverse and that the food is lame and the lifts are old and slow. This mountain has a certain charm that is hard to find elsewhere. It is well worth the extra 30 minutes past bellayre.
  • This is a throw back to family owned ski mountains of old. Great variety of terrain. Friendly people. Great food and beverages. Coupled with reasonable prices its worth a visit
  • People here were super friendly even on the chaotic day that I went up here. The hills were very fun, it helped that we had recently received a lot of snow. Many of the trails had steep declines and had very challenging portions. In addition, it doesn't seem to get too crowded.
