I've hit slopes in other states but this was my first time at Dry Hill and I had an amazing time. Took my mom (who is well into her 50s) skiing here for her first time ever and she thoroughly enjoyed her skiing lesson with Mike. He was a fantastic instructor who possesses all the patience in the world. The... More

Dry Hill is a small local ski hill. Don't expect Breckenridge. Dry Hill is a FANTASTIC place for kids to learn to ski/snowboard.

Since I wasn't released for skiing by my physician, we went tubing on Dry Hill. Even as adults we had a blast. There's something about snow and speed that brings out the smiles in everyone. We laughed out loud, raced like the wind, crashed a few times, and warmed up next to the fire pit. It's a small town ski... More

Went a couple years back and will never return. Extremely crowded, overpriced, and cramped. My husband *tried* to teach me how to ski, which was a nightmare because of the high traffic of skiers and snowboarders. No room to just even stand without being ran over. Even if I did learn how to ski after all of that, one hill... More

Pretty nice place for something to do in the city limits, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, a fun day trip. A little higher in price than used to be, but everything has gone up

Great experience! We drove across the border from Kingston, Ontario and had a wonderful day. The never-ever lesson program is a great value, since it includes a 2-hour lesson and rental equipment for the day for $35! Try to get there an hour in advance to pay for your lesson and get your gear organized. We went on President's Day... More

If you or your spouse haven't skiied, you would be remiss in not giving it a try at Dry Hill. Gentle conditions and engaged staff make this a wonderful place to begin a lifelong active sport. It is also one of the best places we've been to in terms of helping the young ones get started. Very patient, tolerant instructors... More

First time on skies, would have plowed into everything stationary and everyone not quick enough to move out of my way but for the quick-witted, professional, and patient instructor, Mike. Snack-bar folks and food was wonderful, equipment rental folks were as welcoming as wet socks but knew their business, prices were extremely fair - a great way to hit the... More

We visited Dry Hill for our family day vacation. This is a super hill for families. They only have 1 chair lift and 1 t-bar, but if your family just wants a reasonable day of skiing/boarding - its great! Try their first-ever and second-ever packages. $35 for rentals, lift ticket + lessons!!
