If you're looking for an accessible quick from the city, clean, fun, professional experience....go here. Better, i.e. longer than Campgaw, not in the woods like Sterling Forest, with a great valley view, and not as crowded and akwardly arranged with long walks as Vernon Valley. Yes its not a huge long run, but has some steepness for a few turns,... More

Great place to learn if you are a true beginner. Anything above that, don't waste your time. Definitely not worth the $45 they charge for a full day. Runs are just way too short to be enjoyable. By the time you get into a rhythm you are at the entrance to the lift.

About the Mountain: The mountain has 14 trails. There is really small (50-100yrds) trail (Snowbasin) for the absolute beginner with a carpet "lift". Problem is, it's practically flat so you really don't move that much. From there you can progress to the tow-rope trail (Deer Run) that is twice as long but a little more steep so you can actually...

We've been meaning to get to this mountain for a while, finally got there today. Snow conditions were great, which impacts the experience, of course. This is a compact ski resort - no long runs, no big grounds, modest selection of different runs and lifts. Feels very family-run. Really liked the relaxed vibe. Also, as has been mentioned, this is... More

I may be a bit biased as this is our fourth year as season pass holders to this ski area, but here goes. MP was recommended to us as a nice mountain for my wife and daughter to learn, and for me to return to skiing after a 23yr hiatus. Parking is close to the lodge! Because it is considered... More

We went to Mt. Peters for a day of skiing. The mountain is good for new to intermediate skiers. More advanced skiers will be bored. The overall facility was average. This is a definately not a 5 star facility, but it was perfect for our family, which consisted of 3 younger children who are just learning to ski.

I'm only going to review this mountain based on the setup for beginners, but in sure everyone would like this place. Drove over from Westchester, took 50 minutes from white plains, the same time as it takes to get to thunder ridge. 1. Awesome magic carpet area. Twice the size of thunder ridges and twice the size of butternuts (been... More

I was looking for an appropriate and affordable ski area to introduce my kids to skiing and Mt. Peter absolutely fit the bill. I live in Westchester and most families there tend to gravitate to Thunder Ridge near Brewster. However after hearing stories about crowds and cost I knew I needed an alternative as I just didn't think it would... More
