The view is spectacular but the drive up was a little hairy. The road could be wider and not so rough. It is a good experience.

People around here love Terry Peak but is because there is nothing else available. Is a small ski resort with way too many people. very few lifts and few ski runs.

We live in the area and travel to this scare you several times per year. Have teenage boys that snowboard who love the terrain park and the diversity of the mountain. As an expert skier I get a little bored just because the runs are relatively short. For this part of the country this is a fantastic family area. Little... More

This was my first time skiing - ever. Everyone was very friendly, the wait times in lines for gear as well as lines for the lifts were minimal. The snow was good, the sun was shining, and the wind wasn't blowing so overall it was a good day! It was nice enough to sit outside on the patio when we... More

Three days of skiing. Great time and slopes are fantastic. People very friendly. Will return with family. Really could not have been a better trip. Sixteen inches of snow while there did not hurt.

We were there on New Years weekend and so was everyone else. The resort was very, very busy. We waited in line for quite a while on the lifts. I would bet this place is a lot calmer during the week. The lodge is very nice and well kept. They need to add more lessons on weekends. Very hard to... More

For the size of the ski hill this is a good value with all the high speed lifts and price. Nice lodge and friendly staff.

This ski area is amazing! Helpful staff, great bum food, lots of lifts (if it's late enough in the season) and a day of fun! Can't miss this family friendly experience!
