A Bit Hard to Find but Not Bad for Locals

I don't know why, but every time I go to Crabbe I feel like I am lost. The roads are dark and not marked really well. The hill is pretty good but I find the snow often slow... read more

Nice to see positive changes - any business is a work in progress and you can't make everyone happy. The atmosphere was wonderful and what mother nature gave us was worked with the best it could be- along with the team of great snow makers. Love the idea of having help to carry in ski gear from unloading area, etc.... More

A little out of the way, but for the highest elevation in the Maritimes, it offers experienced skiers a great chance to ride some fun terrain. The lodge is small and dated, but functional. The staff are not super friendly or helpful, and they do not seem focused on creating a welcoming atmosphere. The hill looks and feels a bit... More

I don't know why, but every time I go to Crabbe I feel like I am lost. The roads are dark and not marked really well. The hill is pretty good but I find the snow often slow and icy. I know that this is largely weather and geography-dependent but it is a factor. There are a limited number of... More

It's been over 20 years since I have been here. Got lost, no map. This time(modern times), I have a GPS with coordinates. Got lost at the same dead end as 20 years ago. When I finally got to the hill, staff told me not to listen to the GPS. If you can find highway 104, stay on it. There... More

Solid ski area especially for the region. Crabbe Mountain's strength I think is its tree skiing and glades. A very easy mountain to navigate since all trails merge together at the bottom by the main lift. Snow can be somewhat unreliable due to its southern latitude. Can be rather confusing to find to ski area since it is away from... More

If you are expecting whistler then forget about it. But if you want a nice little hill and want to have some fun, this is the spot. When the mega park gets up and running it is by far the best in the maritimes. For advanced skiers/rides, the woods are where it's at. Have a local direct you to Pugs... More

Excellent little ski hill, making the best of small mountain. Does a fairly good job at providing reasonable trail diversity for a small hill, at least one run for everyone whether you look beginner, steep, glades or ungroomed. Reasonable rates all things considered. A great place to learn.

We took our daughter's to Crabbe Mountain for their first ever ski experience during Frostival. We were late arriving and had to get outfitted in rental gear before their lesson. The service was so fast we were in and out in 10-15 minutes on a Saturday morning. Their instructor was fantastic. He took the time to make them feel comfortable... More

Went slaking with my daughters school and first of all $25 for skiing including equipment was fantastic and they had lots of staff to outfit the kids very fast and efficiently. Considering the rain and warm weather they have done a great job maintaining the trails even though not 100% open what was open had great snow cover and no... More
