We love Buck Hill! It's only 15 mins from where we live. This is where we go to for skiing, snow tubing and sometimes happy hour at Black Diamond restaurant. The lift ticket prices and snow tubing prices are reasonable! Everyone that works there are very professional and friendly! I highly recommend Buck Hill! We always have so much fun... More

This obviously is not skiing in the Mountains but for what they have to work with it is alright for a hour or two of skiing. The place does a good job as making it as good as possible and they have updated quite a bit including the terrain park for snowboarders. The snow tubing is very fun and a... More

At least it is named appropriately. Good place for starting skiers. Not difficult hills at all and sometimes over crowded. Expensive for what it is, but it is 5 minutes away so we have kept up some skills due to its convenience

Weekday senior discount great. ($16/person/day). New snow today, about 1 or 2" on overnight groomers. Lifts running well. Found one young lift operator after lunch who recognized a skier in distress and asked us (we were wearing instructor coats, but off duty) to check on the skier. Indeed the skier was in need of ski patrol and I went back... More

We love skiing at buck hill. It isn't very large so you don't ski for much more than 3 hours but it is nice and close. They have great lessons for kids and it is affordable for skiing. The snack shop is totally reasonably priced. $2 for a hot chocolate! Great deals on weekend mornings.

We loved coming here. It's close to downtown and loads of fun. The slide hill is just right for everyone to enjoy.

We decided to give Buck Hill a try for their snow tubing. Tubing was a lot of fun... Fast hills that you zip down and get to be carefree! For 2 hours, you can tube as much as you would like to. The huge downside to this was that the lines you waited in were very long. It started out... More
