Tubing
Feb 2021 • Family
The kids were home from college for the weekend and we were looking for something fun to do. It was a fun way to spend a beautiful winter afternoon. We will definitely do it again soon.

Ripped off
Feb 2018 • Family
Took a day off from work to take my kids skiing at Buena Vista as part of a group deal. It was advertised that they would be open from 10 am to 4 pm. Spent the day skiing with the kids and were having a great time, until they closed everything down at 2:30 without any warning. Another large group that was there left at 2:30, so they decided it wasn't worth staying open as advertised for the smaller group that was there. I did not get what I paid for. Kids were extremely disappointed and it ruined their trip. Sent an email to Buena Vista expressing my disappointment, and have yet to hear a response. I guess they feel they don't need to honor the obligations of their sales.

Buena Vista is a great place for all ages to spend time skiing, snowboarding and downhill tubing. They have a nice, warm lodge with a cozy atmosphere.

Skiing, Snowboarding, and Tubing!
Nov 2016 • Couples
This place is so fun. It isn't the biggest skiing place in Northern Minnesota but it is a blast. The tubing is fun. There are also deals on certain days and deals for college students.

Great value
Feb 2017 • Solo
For a small, family-focused ski experience, Buena Vista is a great value. You can ski at night (4-8p.m.) for as little as $10, pretty much the price of a movie ticket! There is a surprising amount of variety for a tiny hill, with greens, blues and even a black diamond run. There is also a tubing area. My only recommendation is that BV put out more trail maps and clearly mark the runs by color level for newcomers. Parking is convenient, and much fun to be had for those in the Bemidji area.

WE always make this a destination for our grandchildren. Family friendly atmoshphere and short waits on the ski hill.
Jan 2016 • Family
We enjoy bringing our grandchildren to Buena Vista for the family atmosphere and the opportunity for all age levels to enjoy the ski hills. The lines are short and the people are friendly and helpful. The lodge is set beneath the ski hills and is a traditional ski lodge.

Ski, tube, and pay out the nose for snacks & hot chocolate.
Jan 2016 • Family
A popular place for school trips, organization perks (Girl Scouts, Company parties), but as for a family outting, it rates more expensive than the theater for a family of five, with the 'extras' costing more than the core.

Tubing area
Feb 2016 • Family
My family visited the tubing hill on Saturday, February 6th, 2016. I noticed one of the teenage attendants who was standing inbetween the two runways spitting chewing tobacco all over the area where the children were sliding. So I went and informed the person selling the tickets and he had the "hill manager" take care of it. I watched as the "manager" had a laugh with the employee about the chew spit and then the employee proceeded to laugh with other employees about it.
If you want your children to slide in teenagers disgusting chew spit, this is the place for you! As for myself, I am a local and will be telling everybody that is planning on going here, not to.

Winter tubing fun!
Feb 2015 • Family
We took 5 kids (9 if you count us parents!) to go tubing on a Saturday afternoon. Not only did the kids have a fantastic time, but so did us parents! The staff was courteous but also laid down the law when needed (there's three "little" boys in our crew that like to be competitive -they were racing down the hill). By the end of our time we all were racing up for one more ride down, we couldn't get enough! We ended our day with some hot chocolate in the lodge, bathrooms were decent and again the employees in the lodge were friendly.
Definitely recommend for families, couples, friends, etc.
