I signed up to go with a group of friends, thinking I might try this for a couple of runs, and then wait in the coffee area for the rest of the group to finish. Surprise! I had the time of my life and made 16 runs in 2 hours. Feeling like a kid again, I tried all but the... More

Powder Ridge has come a long way and is only getting better. Their new restaurant, Fire at the Ridge, has the best food/service around. Even if you're not a skier, it's worth visiting just to eat and drink. There is a nice tavern area in addition to a fine dining restaurant. They also have a cafeteria area, which is nice... More

5 stars for being 30 min from my house! **NOTE, this is NOT a destination ski place (locals will be thrilled though). I have skied all over the world from Nagano to Park City to Gstaad and all over New England.** The bunny slope is the perfect place for a small child (or any beginner) to learn how to ski.... More

A great place to spend a family day on the slopes. Pros - easy drive, clean, not crowded, kids friendly, great instructors, and reasonable prices. Cons - not for advance skiers. I read a lot of negative reviews from last year and I think they have made some improvements since and should deserve another chance.

This place is great for learning snowsports but, not much else. You can skate down the steepest part of the hill. If I were a passholder, I'd buy one at any other CT hill next year as they did a terrible job of opening terrain. Mohawk and Sundown can be fully open in about 3 days of snowmaking. Powder Ridge...

This is a modest, family oriented ski area with focus on beginner skiers. The resort has a mandatory requirement on wearing helmets for all skiers regardless of age. They can be rented ($11) at the mountain if you don't have one. Be aware the wait for helmets can eat into your ski day, so plan accordingly. The terrain was OK... More

The lodge is open! So, here's the scoop...only open two years after being silent for 8. Now part of Brownstone Adventure Park. Perfect? No. Yes, it's disorganized, the buildings are not state of the art and the only bathrooms are in the lodge. BUT...if you have kids, this is a GREAT place to be. Small with an excellent training park.... More

We went last year shortly after it reopened and the place was utter chaos. Organization was definitely lacking, but we cut them some slack as we thought they were working out the kinks. We wanted to give them another chance this year and absolutely wish we didn't. The place has so much potential, but the mismanagement is evident. We attempted... More

Years ago, I liked this place best of the CT places, I cannot find out if it is even open on their website. Nobody answered the operator's phone. Their website claims no lifts are open but another site claims 4/6 are open. I think with their terrible reopening last year that they would have straightened out some of the basic... More

Finally in March called on a sat and was told they would be open on Sunday but to call first. Started to call first thing Sunday morning and no answer. Tried about 10 more times... More
