A hidden gem of a ski mountain - Black is rarely crowded and always fun. They don't always make snow and rely more on mother nature, but it makes the skiing that much more fun. Tickets are super reasonably priced and they do offer half-day tickets. The mountain has trails for all abilities and is great for families.

Black is the real deal, don't sleep on it. It skis much bigger than it is, especially on good snow days or corn days in the spring. There are great tree lines to be had that are seldom tracked if you are willing to explore. Ticket and beer prices are low. People are friendly. The parking lot won't be too... More

We hiked this mountain via the Chippewa Trail in Benton. It started out easy but did quickly turn steep and challenging for a while. However, the views along the way were beautiful! And, at the top (don't be fooled by some of the other stops that look like the summit), there are beautiful views of Mt. Mooselauke. On the day... More

We took our two dogs on the Black Cap trail which is the 1.2 mile hike to the summit. This trail is very popular with people, families and dogs. The trail starts out fairly easy but the last .5 miles or so is vertical and scrambling over rocks. Make sure you have appropriate footwear. There is an alternate slightly longer... More

Let me start by saying although this is only 1.1 mile to the summit, the majority of the hiking is up hill with rocks, tree limbs. But the hardest is the last 1/3 which you must climb rocks to the summit. Beautiful at the top but I wouldn't classify this as an easy trail. Also the road to the attraction... More

We recently took our 12 year old daughter and 8 year old son to Black Mountain for a guided horseback ride up the mountain. This was by far one of the most pleasurable activities our family has ever done together. Liz was awesome with our nervous son, and gave excellent instruction to everyone when they needed it. The views from... More

I was so amazed at the friendliness and helpfulness of the whole town. Everyone smiles and walks everywhere. Beautiful shops, exquisite art and crafts and many, many choices for great foods. I love this town

This is a great family mountain. If you are lloking for a ski spot that has a great family atmosphere, this is it. Not many, if any hard trails, but if you have begginer skiiers this is the spot for you!

Great for older people who don't want a challenging mountain. Great for beginners and intermediate skiers. Great staff including ski patrol and instructors.
