We decided to try Blue Mountain for a 2-day mini ski trip as an alternative to Camelback and Shawnee. I will not make the same mistake twice. First off, buying your lift tickets and renting equipment is a disaster. You have to wait on one...More

We went for two day trip at the ski resort. It hasn't snowed so the condition is average. But people at the skiing shop and private tutors are all professional and kind to all levels of skiers. The only issue is at the tubing place....More

Very little room to last minute activities, specially ski/board lessons. Better to schedule and book with at least a week in advance. The lifts moved quick with very minimum slowdowns and or stops. The runs were fine.

Over the years we have been to this place quite a few times for skiing. The contrast is very sharp: a heaven on weekdays and a nightmare on weekends. On weekends, there are simply way too many people and you spend unproportional time waiting in...More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and for being a returning customer! Naturally resorts are busier on the weekends - we try to account for this as much as we can. For example, we installed our automated RFID card readers for...More

With the minimum height of 36” to ride alone, it allowed my 4 year old the freedom to feel like a big kid. The family tubes were great too. I suggest going early it got crowded by noon.
