Attraction details
Owner description: Bristol Mountain is the premier resort located in the Western Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. Our 1200' vertical rise allows Bristol Mountain to reign as the highest vertical between the Adirondack/Laurentian Mountains of the east and the Rocky Mountains of the west. There are 138 acres of total skiable terrain. Views from the summit and the 34 slopes and trails are breathtaking and provide a variety of inclines for every skier and snowboarder from beginner to expert with 32% of the slopes being novice, 50% intermediate, and 18% advanced level terrain. During our night operating season, 96% of our trails have lighting. To assure our skiers and snowboarders of the best possible snow conditions, Bristol Mountain is proud of its state-of-the-art snowmaking system which covers 97% of the terrain.

My boyfriend and I hadn't skied in about 10 years so we were rusty. We chose Bristol Mountain because of the great selection of green runs to practice on. What a great decision! Although the mountain was icy due to the mild weather, the runs are terrific and great for all skill levels. The night skiing is fantastic! We rented skis, boots and poles and were very happy with the quality.

I rode the chair lift to view fall foliage- what a great ride. You have the option of riding up and down or just up and waling down, which most people do. It is not an easy walk, hiking shoes/sneakers essential but trail is marked and you can take your time. Great solo/couples/family activity.
