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.

Love the way they have the trails lit up at night! They are very beautiful! Love all the different levels of trails they have and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

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

we've been skiiing here for years - just came off the slopes today as it had snowed a bit last night. Skiiing was great -- no lines (even better) and the sun was peaking out from the blue ski clouds for much of the morning. We know some ski instructors - which are great if you are planning a family... More

Beautiful hills/runs, short lines, friendly service, great (AND super cheap) food at the Rocket Lodge. Very courteous skiiers, quick lifts, lots of various runs. The best part? A freakin' waffle house ON THE MOUNTAIN!

I've skied a majority of the mountains in western NY and PA, but hadn't had a chance to get up to Bristol until recently. I was very pleasantly surprised! The runs are longer and steeper than most in western NY, which makes for some challenging lines. Most of these runs are serviced by a high-speed quad which, on a frigid... More

My boyfriend and I hadn't skied in about 10 years so we were rusty. We chose Bristol Mountain because of the great selection of green runs to practice on. What a great decision! Although the mountain was icy due to the mild weather, the runs are terrific and great for all skill levels. The night skiing is fantastic! We rented... More
