“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

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 gem!

“Snowboarding before Christmas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

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 themselves up. The skiers and the tubers had lifts but the snowboarders have to pull themselves up? They had a bar if you want to drink and they also provide food and non alcoholic beverages, it is very expensive but you are at a ski resort so it is expected I guess. All in all it was ok but for a place that is not kept up the prices are just as high as other ski resorts, I suggest doing some upgrades and keeping the roads up because we went past 4-5 cars that were stuck in the snow because of so much snow the week before.

“Great tubing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

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

“Stay Outside for the Best Impression”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

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 of chili cheese fries, wrong price rung up, wrong change counted back, etc). We waited for our food in an area with a big screen TV that was off; we were told they didn't have it hooked up and couldn't hook it up. Sitting on school-type lunch tables we received our bleeding burgers. When we returned them, the manager took the workers back within hearing range and chewed them out. The lady who took our money was cranky, at one time telling us to get away from the window when we had questions because she was going to help someone else and needed to make a call, so by this time we were seriously considering going elsewhere. BUT - we stuck it out and once outside, we had a ton of fun. One particular young man gave us tips on how our group could get the most speed and most air off the 3 courses they had for tubing. The lift worked just fine. There was no waiting at the top of the runs, and there seemed to be few rules about how many could go down at once as all 8 of us would routinely hook up and go together. Inside experience - horrible. Outside experience - a lot of fun. Since the point of the attraction is the tubing, we're overall glad we went.
