I live only 40 minutes away and thought that this small, local ski school would be ideal...boy was I wrong! I placed all 3 of my children in the 2015 ski school. My husband and I never received any of the class information via email or mail (even after multiple requests). My sons were not placed in the correct level... More

This is a good ski area for beginners/novices/snow boarders and those wanting to enjoy winter close to home. Offers ski and snow boarding lessons. They do make snow, but call for conditions. During warmer months will have festivals and other events.

This is a great place to learn to ski. Just the right size for that. Their learn to ski program for the kids was very well run and a good place for them to start. The teachers had plenty of energy and skill to teach the kids.

I took my daughter and her friend to Maple Ski Ridge so that they could learn to snow board. They had a great time and got great lessons from the staff. The cost was reasonable and it's great that it's nearby. My wife and I enjoyed the snack area while the girls were snow boarding. We got some snacks and... More

Both my kids learned to ski and snowboard at Maple Ski Ridge. Its the perfect size for beginner to intermediate skiers/snowboarders and their ski school is the best in the area. The mountain is not that big, and there are not as many trails as you'll find at larger ski spots like Jimminy Peak, etc. But it is a perfect... More

Best military discount going from a family owned business that cares about the men and women who serve in the armed forces. Great ski experience. Fun for the whole family. Will definitely return.

Psst.... the best place to teach children how to ski. GREAT staff can't say enough about this friendly place. There is a ski lodge for the one family member that tags along w/o any intention of skiing:) There's a snack stand but you should bring your own.
