I get reports from a lot of different people,some come from far-awa-places such as Brazil , Caribbean Islands, European Countries ...... They agree that this is a safe enough mountain to bring their kids and they do,including the world famous Brazilian actor Luigi Baricelli, who visits Beds On Clouds and Windham Mountain almost every year. They also tell me that... More

I had always skied at Hunter Mountain, but since buying a house in Windham last April, we decided to start skiing here instead since it's so close to our house. Well, we have officially decided that we like Windham a lot better than Hunter and have just purchased season passes for next year! We find the conditions on the mountain... More

I've been skiing Windham Mountain for well over a decade. While it certainly doesn't rival anything further north (Vermont, New Hampshire) or west (Colorado, Utah), it is a convenient weekend excursion from Manhattan or from the many weekend homes in the Hudson Valley. Hunter Mountain may have better snowmaking capabilities and grooming, but the relaxed and civilized vibe here makes... More

A wide variety of trails from beginner to expert. Trails were well maintained but locating staff was a bit difficult. Skied for the full day and did not see ski patrol once. A variety of food options at the mountain but prices are high.

This is a great mountain for a day trip. It is big enough that for one day you won't get bored, not sure I could say the same if we stayed longer. The conditions were great and seemed very well groomed. We enjoyed lunch at the cafe on site. It is expensive, but that is to be expected.

This is good ski mountain and as a weekend local it's my "go-to" place for a day of skiing on varied well groomed terrain. I'm happy to recommend it but, a big but, the parking is awful. Yesterday, granted a Saturday, we arrived at 10:15 AM to find the valet parking full and the only available parking in a muddy... More

Good Morning Walter, Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. March was an exceptionally busy month for all resorts in the east and thanks to Mother Nature's cooperation, the East was the place to be this year. Offering Valet Parking is a fabulous convenience for our skiers and riders making their arrival and departure a breeze. On... More

The bathroom is not kept for. In each cabin, it's almost impossible to step in because of the water and ice and dirt and paper all around. All of the seats are dirty. Nobody even bothers to flush the toilet after themselves. And in some cabins there is almost no light. For ten years of skiing in Windham I have... More

Hello, I apologize for the conditions that you encountered on March 8th in the Women's Restroom. This is the first time in 17 years that I have ever received a comment concerning the cleanliness of our facilities. We did experience very busy weekends in March thanks to the incredible conditions on the hill however that is no excuse for your... More

Hello, I apologize that your visit with us did not meet you expectations. Our method of scanning tickets and passes is the tool we use so that we know how many guests are visiting on any given day. We have certainly researched RF technology but unfortunately with 12 lifts the cost is prohibitive at this time. Instead we chose to... More
