Description: Bristol Mountain is the premier resort located in the Western Finger Lakes...
Bristol Mountain is the premier resort located in the Western Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. Our 1200' vertical rise allows Bristol Mountain to reign as the highest vertical between the Adirondack/Laurentian Mountains of the east and the Rocky Mountains of the west. There are 138 acres of total skiable terrain. Views from the summit and the 34 slopes and trails are breathtaking and provide a variety of inclines for every skier and snowboarder from beginner to expert with 32% of the slopes being novice, 50% intermediate, and 18% advanced level terrain. During our night operating season, 96% of our trails have lighting. To assure our skiers and snowboarders of the best possible snow conditions, Bristol Mountain is proud of its state-of-the-art snowmaking system which covers 97% of the terrain.

When I go skiing, I ski. If I want awesome food, shopping or nightlife, I take a different vacation. Places that offer awesome skiing and everything else tend to be crowded and expensive. Places that offer awesome skiing and the basics when you're done, less so. That's the kind of place Bristol is. The runs at the front are long... More

Man I love visiting our American neighbors, they really know service. I would choose Bristol over the hills in Collingwood or Barrie, unless you want a resort atmosphere. Bristol is all about sport and doesn't have a Starbucks or a shopping zone. The drive from Hamilton is easier (no rude drivers in NY) and the scenery is beautiful. The tolls... More

We love Bristol and drive from Canada regularly to come here. The people that work here are so friendly, from the cafeteria to the great guy in the pro shop to the fun group that work the lifts. I appreciate that they are very diligent in keeping the lifts safe and they loading and unloading areas are always taken care... More

Unexceptional ski area in a region with limited elevation. Bristol Mountain does offer skiers some longer runs with a vertical drop of nearly 1200 feet (366 meters). You need to be mindful of the snow conditions. When we skied in late December 2014 just prior to Christmas the snow conditions were poor. Based on the recent warm weather and rain... More

Thank you so much for visiting our resort and we really value your feedback. Trust us, we wish we could control the weather, it would make our jobs much easier. Unfortunately, when we get long periods of warm weather and rain it impacts our ability to groom because grooming the trails actually causes further snow coverage loss. We hope that... More

We're lucky in this part of Western New York to have such good place for skiing and boarding. We don't have the high terrain like they do in the Adirondacks and Vermont, but we've got lots of excellent snow-making and some really good runs. We also have fast lift lines and good food in the lodge. Fun for the whole... More

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.
