By far, the best ski destination in the Western NY and Southern Tier area. Twice the vertical drop of any other resort within 2 hours drive, and a nice mix of terrain for all levels of skiers/boarders. Grab some wings and beers at Lock, Stock and Barrel (couple miles north on 64) after a day on the mountain.

My Hubby took me here in October to see the Foilage. Wow, was it Beautiful. We took the chair lift to the top of the mountain. It was so much fun. We walked around, and the views on top were amazing. All the trees were so colorful. It was an amazing time. Can't wait to go back in October!! :-)

Longer runs, perfect grooming and no lines make this ski resort a paradise. A few more express ski lefts and Bristol will be PERFECT.

Have always had a great time at Bristol Mountain! Definitely stop in at the Morning Star Cafe! My daughter learned how to snowboard there and has loved it ever since. Great Staff and lessons! Enough selection of trails to keep everyone happy.

Went for 2 days in March during Canadian March Break. It was great although we arrived in a snow storm so the following 2 days of skiing were on a fresh packed snow. Great place with many different ski slopes that are long. The Waffle House by the terrain park is a nice touch... Too bad that it's only open... More

An amazing place to hit the slopes on a surprisingly good set of trails. Many options for all levels of experience and a good time to be had. Lessons are available if you sign up in advance.

Beware beginner and intermediate level skiers. This place is not well planned and organized. This is not the place to take your family. The green level slopes all seem to merge in one area where all level skiers tend to go. If you want to go to either of the terrain parks you have to take the Comet Express lift... More

Easy rental of snowshoes, and trail lit at night. Nordic Center is north of Bristol Mtn., eat before/after or bring a picnic for warming hut.

First, if you are from the area there is no better place to go. The runs are longer and well planned. The snowmaking is better than anywhere. The staff can be comparable to any hill. The lessons are also on par. We ski here as our first choice because the terrain is so varied and the runs longer than the... More
