We visited Jackson, as we do every year, for the foliage, and decided to go on a trail ride at the Black Mountain stables. Our guide Liz, was friendly, knowledgeable and unflappable. The horses were well cared for, and safely took us up into Black mountain for our ride. I took my son who is 10, for his first ride... More

We took a wrong turn driving back from our trip up Mt Washington, banged a U-ee, and saw the sign telling us to "Saddle Up!" at Black Mountain. We'd skied there several times and had seen the horses with their woolly winter coats but never even thought to try this. So glad we did! Great staff. John patiently answered all... More

After ski-ing Cranmore and Attitash, we gave Black Mountain a try. It was a gloriously sunny but bitterly cold day (polar vortex in force) and the mountain was sheltered from the wind. We had a range of abilities in our group and there was something for everyone. All had a good time. We had read about the rustic charm etc,... More

So I read the trip advisor and google reviews and was psyched to ski here. We have a fairly good five year old skier and we're comfortable skiing blacks but like long blue trails. Our son can ski blues also at places like Cranmore and King Pine. I read so much about yesteryear charm. If this is charm then keep... More

I highly recommend the summer horse back riding trail ride at Black Mountain. It was myself and the trail guide. The horses were obviously well cared for, steady mounts. As an experienced rider, I would have bought my horse in a heartbeat if I could. They can and do accommodate beginner riders. My trail guide, Tammy, was very knowledgeable and... More

Nice trail ride up the mountain, and a reasonable price. Liked the staff, very helpful. Would be nice if there were coupons for return visits for regulars.

This ski mountain is right in Jackson, and has a wonderful riding program in the summer. We are not experienced riders, but had a great time. Our guide kept us at a comfortable pace. It was just myself and my daughter, not a big group, which was nice.

We went here on a recommendation of the Snow Flake Inn, and were glad we took their advice. Great food, great people and all at a great price

The runs at Black Mountain we well groomed despite being so late in the season. Rental rates and lift tickets were a bargain! (Save a few bucks on the lift tickets by getting them at Whitney's Inn if you're staying there.)

Family friendly with challenges if you want it. A nice New England mountain. Enjoy the curvy tight trails, and staff.
