While this mountain is not the most extreme mountain out there is is perfect for families with skiers of all levels and our mountain of choice when traveling with my brother in laws family and their small children.
It is located only shortly from the center of Jackson. About five minutes. I highly suggest having a four wheel drive car or suv as Jackson gets a lot of snow! Black Mountain has the cheapest tickets of all the Mountains. And, you can often get them at discounted rates at the local hotels/inns.
One of the things we love in that Black Mountain doesn't get the crowds that the other mountains get. The lines are never long and while the lifts are old they are not too slow and you get to the top of the mountain pretty quickly. The lack of lines make up for the old lifts.
The food is not outrageously priced and is pretty good at the LostBo Pub. Our family always gets an order of the White Knuckle Nachos. They are awesome!
Overall my wife and I highly recommend Black Mountain for those with families or with different levels of skiers. When we come just with ourselves and not with the rest of the family we prefer Wildcat Mountain.
