I have been coming to Deer Mountain for 8 years. A few years ago it changed owners and I'm so glad they did. The place was in need of repair. In the last few years that the new owners have taken over they have really focused on the family aspect all the way from music, food, upgrading the tubing experience... More

Decided to take our kids tubing during a Friday night. There is a sign right at check-in that says that intoxicated people are not allowed on the slopes. Lies. I complained to two separate staff members about the actions of a group of intoxicated individuals - especially since there were a fair number of children around - but my concerns... More

Mystic Mountain ski resort is something we stumbled on completely out of the blue. We were staying in a rental cabin up the road for a week. Glad we discovered it! Had the pleasure of meeting the owners in the cozy little lounge, very personable & genuine. This little resort has tubing, night tubing, skiing, boarding & more. Great little... More

This was my first time at this resort and I was a little disappointed at how old and unkept this place was. It was very run down and small compared to other ski resorts in the area. The girls got tired very quick;y about going up and down the hill because they had to hold onto a rope and pull... More

Fun place to spend a few hours tubing. 3 tube runs and they let you tether together. Friendly outdoor staff, we will be back!

Three other couples and we arrived at 11:30 only to find out they charge by the session. We either had to pay the full price to 12:30 or wait until 12:30 to pay for the next session which ran until 3:30. Check times online before going. While waiting, we ordered food from someone who got every order wrong (chili instead... More

The former Deer Mountain is now known as "Mystic Miner." 3 of my 7 kids w/spouses and a guest couple made it up here for ski season. Snow was low, but some runs and trails were open. The first day the ski lifts were broken. The 2d day we were able to tube for 2 hours until that lift broke... More
