The Mystic Ski Resort is a three person, one lift, in the Deer Mountain area near Deadwood, SD. It is only open on weekends and not the most expansive selection of slopes, BUT here's the deal - the area has some of the best skiing between the Alps and the Rockies. They normally try to open around Thanksgiving and close... More

On January 11, 2015, my family and I went to this ski resort to try snow tubing. We had alot of fun. We arrived in time for the first 2 hour block from 10:00 a.m. to noon. The price was $25 per person for two hours. An all day pass is $41 but since we'd never done it we weren't... More

My brothers and all our families drove 6 hours and planned to do this for one of the days (#1 reason we went). Make sure you have other plans as the lift broke down for us. (spendy place) It would be nice if it would have had more staff to help out, other lift running, and to get people out... More

Manager was nice enough to refund half our money. I was super excited to get half my money back and never... More

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
