great bunny school!

It was 9-3 with lunch, tix, and rental included. A fabulous deal for the $ and instructors were very kind and helpful. My children left asking if they could ski more days.

The tubing is reasonably priced by the hour. The young men that were running the tubing enjoyed their job and were so friendly. The scenery is breathtaking. They have a conveyor system that takes you up the hill on your tube. We came here while we were staying at the Homestead and it just added to an already wonderful visit.

I skied only once before, and that was about 30 years ago. Visited Homestead Ski Area in Hot Springs, VA... and took a 2 hour ski group lesson. Instructor, Hella, was great... Online, resort advertised $79 special (normal ~$150) for brief introductory group lesson, rental, lift ticket. But their system wouldn't allow online booking for the date/time we requested. We...

Great place to learn or have a fun afternoon. Basically one big slope but a fun place to enjoy yourself or even better to get the basics down.

Great family ski mountain. Slopes are low intermediate at best. If your kids are learning to ski/snowboard this is your mountain. Bunny school was organized, but doesn't offer snowboarding group lessons/bunny school. Instructors were very nice and helpful. Private snowboard lesson was well worth it, my son really excelled after his lesson with Brey. Nice deck to watch kids go... More

Not for those looking for a ski challenge - but for teaching little ones to ski - Perfect! Close to the Homestead resort - food and beverage (and bar) options on site. A deck with view of the slope to watch the kids come down the hill. Great fireplace on the deck to roast marshmallows. Rustic but fits the bill... More

Bathroom discusting, ski rental girls not helpful or welcoming,cafeteria closed at 3pm even though over 50 skiers/snowboarders were out on the patio or at bar. Only one ski lift and one slope to ski down. All around, too expensive for the quality of ski resort.

Loved everything about the Ski Area!! The folks were wonderful. This was the first time for the kids skiing and after only one lesson they were skiing run after run. No real line, easy to keep track of children that out ski you and the lodge is cozy.

On arrival, tea on the veranda even though we were not guests of the hotel. Very nice staff. We got a ride to the shooting range (free) just to see the view. This was exceptional, they knew we were not staying at the resort. The pool area (3 of them!) were great, whirlpool w/ warm spring waters. Restaurant was very... More

I learned to ski here when I was 5 years old. These are slopes for the true beginner. They are small, short, and not very steep. Don't expect an intermediate/advanced skier/boarder to be able to spend all day here. However, if you've never skied etc...take a trip, ski some, sit by the fire and drink hot chocolate some!
