I like this small ski and tubing center. Very accessible, has good size ski lodge and it's family owned. They run a ski school during the winter and have tubing available. Many times have we gone up there and had fun. Good place for families and teens. Not big at all and gentle hills.

A very small, one lift ski area in Rotterdam, NY. Experts will find this boring. They do have a good ski school and very good instructors, making it a good place to learn how to ski.

Maple Ski Ridge is an excellent local ski center. The staff is all very friendly and courteous. They have trails for all levels of skiers, a terrain park for snow boarders and a great four run snow tube hill.

We all learned to ski at Maple Ski Ridge- the ski school which was run by Freddie for years bought myself and my sibling a life long sport that we still enjoy to today 40 years later. They offer every thing you need and it is close by for locals- there amy be "bigger" facilities but here is NO Better... More

I hadn't been skiing in YEARS, so this was the perfect "mountain" for me to start on. It wasn't crowded, the staff was super helpful and the mountain was small. Maybe because it was the end of the season, but it seemed like everyone knew each other here, hence adding to the friendly environment. It looks like they offer ski... More

I live only 40 minutes away and thought that this small, local ski school would be ideal...boy was I wrong! I placed all 3 of my children in the 2015 ski school. My husband and I never received any of the class information via email or mail (even after multiple requests). My sons were not placed in the correct level... More

This is a good ski area for beginners/novices/snow boarders and those wanting to enjoy winter close to home. Offers ski and snow boarding lessons. They do make snow, but call for conditions. During warmer months will have festivals and other events.

This is a great place to learn to ski. Just the right size for that. Their learn to ski program for the kids was very well run and a good place for them to start. The teachers had plenty of energy and skill to teach the kids.

I took my daughter and her friend to Maple Ski Ridge so that they could learn to snow board. They had a great time and got great lessons from the staff. The cost was reasonable and it's great that it's nearby. My wife and I enjoyed the snack area while the girls were snow boarding. We got some snacks and... More
