I have visited Winterplace over a dozen years and found it to be ideal for our large ski group. The location for our kids, all coming from the Southeastern U.S., is ideal.

Winter place is a good place to go if you like to ski or snow board. The staff there is very patient and when you go to get on the lifts they slow it down for you. There are a lot of beginner trails, but there are some places that are flat and you have to push yourself off. The... More

We were happy with our experience at Winterplace. Great for small children! Staff was very patient and would slow down the lift and help my six year old get on.

I am not a very good skier but this is my second time to Winterplace and I think it is pretty nice. We were late, last weekend in February and the slopes were still pretty good. I took a youth group and noone complained about anything.

On a gorgeous sunny Tuesday - school cancelled but nobody here but us and few others. Got here at 10 and we were only ones in our group lesson. Weather was perfect. Staff super friendly and helpful we had the perfect day. I love winterplace and hope we get back again this season.

Winterplace didn't disappoint us. It was a little pricey, and the rental equipment was sub-par, but the mountain itself was much larger than I thought. And, it was super easy to get to.
