  • We had three kids and the staff were very unfriendly and not at all accommodating. They had the whole area booked for the 11 am slot which they didn't inform when we phoned ahead. We ended up booking ...  read more »

  • Under new management since most of these reviews were written. Complete overhaul over the past couple seasons. If you are close it's worth it. Ticket cost is appropriate, night skiing is now available. Compared to the two RIDGE hills in CT it is the steepest so adults can enjoy themselves when kids learn to ski. They have a six week learn to ski program that is unmatched in the area, both in price and instruction. Disregard any review 20 months or older. Close, cheap, friendly, SAFE. Fair food prices.
  • It is a great little ski area to get time on the snow without driving to northern New England. They have state of the art snowmaking and grooming equipment, but keep in mind that they depend heavily on man-made snow given their geographic location. If you are expecting Sun Valley when you get there you will be disappointed, but if you have realistic expectations it is probably as good or better than most of the hills in CT short of taking a drive to Mohawk. Prices for lessons are very reasonable compared to what we have paid for our kids in places like Vermont. Staff are mostly local kids who work part time in the winter months.
  • Woodbury Ski Area is a great place for first time skiers. They have a great rate for first timers that includes lift, rental and lesson for $75. The group lesson were great. We got a lot of individual attention because of the small group. There was no line at the lift all day on a Saturday.
  • Woodbury Ski Area leads the way by opening early, and the conditions are excellent. With New Management, the emphasis is on Safety,Tubers have secure Tubing lanes with turns at the bottom, to safely slow down. The food in the Restaurant was excellent and the Chair-lift, gives access to a nice steep run. I was there Saturday December 13th, the sun was shining and the snow was excellent, wondering were all the skiers were. Ski-racers were training in gates, and the Boarders and Freestylers were jumping, sliding and spinning. What a day.
