We took our kids ages 3-11 snow tubing on Presidents Day. They had never been and were very excited. We’re glad we bought tickets in advance because they sold out the session. Even though all the lanes were open, my kids were only able to go down about 4-5 times. In two hours. So we spent $30/each to drive 2+ hours there and back so that the kids could go down a mountain 4 times. The problem is that they wait until the entire bottom is cleared before they allow anyone to go down. So if one lane has a slowpoke, the entire rest of the lanes have to wait. It ended up being that when you got to the top to finally go down, you sometimes had 8 people waiting to go ahead of you because of that policy. I think it has the potential to be really fun and the times that my kids went down, they really enjoyed but there had to be a better way of managing the crowds or at least not make everyone wait for a different lane to be cleared. It’s because of that, that I don’t expect us to return.

Been to Mt Peter a few times over last 5 years. Their registration/ rentals area / flow is disjointed and disorganized - Not easy. Each item you need is in a different shed, needing to walk outside from shed to shed, sometimes muddy parking lot. Lodge and facilities a little dirty. Restaurant was running low on food / running out of several items - midday for lunch on a holiday. Staff not particularly welcoming or helpful. I prefer Thunder Ridge 15 minutes closer to NYC-they’re more organized, more friendly, with a cleaner, better lodge and staff.

My 8 year old daughter just started skiing this season so we love Mt Peter. Can't say enough. Not sure about the other bad reviews because we have been here 3 times this season so far and had a pretty great time every time. Conditions are still Northeast with the expected ice patches, but considering its location, conditions were quite good most days. Very nice beginner mountain which is what we need right now and proximity to northern NJ is great for us. Staff is quite friendly and they do enforce masks, etc, which is nice to see. I'd consider a season pass depending on the price...

The folks who run their facebook page appear to have blocked me for stating the facts (after I received targeted ads for this place). This place is so small, that it is a waste of time for most people. If this is your first or second time skiing, maybe, you'll enjoy Mt. Peter, but for those of us who know how to ski, you'll probably be bored here. I'd rather sit at home, sip hot chocolate, and play solitaire than go to this "resort." According to mountainvertical, there is less than 100 skiable acres at Mount Peter, and their vertical drop is an unimpressive 450 feet.

I usually love this place but yesterday was dangerously icy on the slopes. I understand skiing is at your risk but at least give a warning on the website instead of pretending the conditions were MGPP. I drove all the way there for 4 icy runs down. It was 2 days after a rainstorm - not sure if it was better or worse one day after. I even checked with one of the young instructors - she agreed conditions were dangerous and was afraid herself that she'd fall. Again, just give a warning when it's icy so people can determine whether they want to take the risk.

I have never had a good experience at Mt. Peter. Prices are $20 to $30 higher for everything than comparable mountains/hills because that all it is...a tiny hill. The lines are atrocious. If you try and get rentals onsite, be prepared to wait 1 to 2 hours at least. There isn’t much consideration at all for your time. Thanks Mt. Peter for another horrible experience for my family and myself. Never coming back and blame myself for even coming more than once. Go somewhere else, you will be glad you did.

Ski patrol workers are rude and not helpful. Was told if caught wearing airpods you could be banned from skiing for up to 5 years??? Could not find any truth to this in the mountains ski regulations posted on their website or NY general ski regulations. Can someone point me to where these rules would be?

This is probably closest to New York City great snow tubing place. Rates are reasonable. On a very balmy day (about 60F) there was plenty of snow and all had fun. The number of working restrooms could be improved. But otherwise, facilities are very good.

Mount Peter is a great ski mountain to get away for the day with friends/family. It’s close enough to NYC for a day trip. They have ski/board instructors for first timers or anyone who needs a refresher. Come out and enjoy!!

These people are horrifically rude and should have never been in any kind of business that involves kids. I signed up for their ski program through my children's school and they are forcing me not to get season pass, but instead buy individual tickets because they are going to make few more bucks on my child. My contract states I want season pass, and they won't sell it to me! They do not care that they are making my 9 year old stand in line for longer than she is going to ski with her school. I guess that is what they want: to make you stand in line rather than ski. So if you are in the mood for waiting to ski, this is a perfect place to go. If you actually want to ski, run!!!!!

I tried to be so nice and explained to them that my family is coming from the Tuxedo Ridge (which closed for a year) and that we are coming with the school program, where my child is unlikely to ski on their mountain except for the time that she is there with the school. I explained that in my contract signed through school I clearly state that I want ski pass. They have the contract, they saw it, and then they declined to follow through because they make more money on the tickets. How awful!

Being a new customer, being a parent, being a child in a school program, being nice....it did not matter to whoever owns this ski place. I asked to speak to one of the supervisors, who did not want to talk to me.

So, if you have any other place to go and ski, please do. This is not a family friendly place. In fact, seeing how they interacted with me, I am so terrified to even have my child ski there this year. Unfortunately, I have no choice for this year because of Tuxedo Ridge closing, but hopefully next year, it will be a different story. So, if you have a choice, which I don't at the moment, do not ski at Mr. Peter.
