Terrible customer service--arrogant and couldn't care less about the costumer! Terrible rules-- my two 5 year olds were on the bunny slope and for the most part, were able to get up after a fall. However, anytime they couldn't get up, I would hop over...More

This was our first time skiing the ridge. It's a small mountain that does a nice job not making you feel like you're at a small mountain. The trails are varied and fun with small jumps and trails through the woods. There are two main...More

The place has horrible staff. Bad skiing conditions and overcrowded. Our kids were in intermediate lesson which was bogus. 20 kids to one instructor . This place needs better management or it should go out of business. Rude stafc

Thunder Ridge has been the worst ski area on the East Coast for some years, with lousy snowmaking and grooming, nasty customer service and horrendously long and unruly lines. But it could be a great little place, and new management is on the way.

After reading and re-reading the previous reviews, we should have known what to expect, but even the employees never saw such crowds as today. It was a beautiful Sunday morning of a holiday weekend which explains the crowds. It does not explain the rather disorganized...More

I knew what to expect:high prices, horrible amenities. But it's proximity is great to find out if it's worth packing the little ones up for a longer trip. Purpose served. The mountain smells like a septic tank. Didn't expect that.
