Wonderful family place for beginners, all trails and ski lifts are maintained and in great condition. Ticket prices are very affordable. Lots of snowboarders though so it makes it little tougher for the skiers.

Although very busy for a Saturday, the place is organized and staffed well enough to move the process of rental equipment and lessons through in a timely manner. The instructor for private lessons that we had was very professional and good with my older children....More

Love Shawnee more than the other close by resorts. Fast lifts, they handle the crowds well and super lessons. My kids have learned more there than at Bear Creek, Blue Mountain, Camelback and Jack Frost Big Boulder. This lodge is dated, but serves the need....More

Second time visiting this place. Two years ago was the first. Not so much had changed from 2 years ago, but the conditions were very hood this year. Lots of positive things about this place, many options for all ages. Really fun place.

I visited Shawnee Mountain Ski Area over the weekend with a group of girlfriends and had a great time. We purchased a first-timer's package and Yasmin was an awesome instructor for the 7 of us. Can't wait to go back with the kids.

Visited this past w/e for first time. We’ll return for the excellent ski school teachers, but will not patronize the lodge/dining/seating areas for the stagnant smell of URINE throughout the building. Please someone address the issue and don’t just spray canned air fresher
