“Nice little ski resort close to Buffalo”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The hills here aren't huge, but there are plenty of trails, even a few black diamonds. During the peak of the season there are probably about 5 lifts operating on weekends. As a not-very-good skier, I always appreciated the many easy trails.

“time to renovate”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

There are nice hills here, but you feel like you've stepped into a 1950's movie. I can't see any sign of any real investment in the last half century. The buildings are old and dilapidated and the lifts are old. There isn't a high speed quad to be found. I'd hate to see one of the corporate giants like Interwest turn this into another copy cat ski village, because it has a certain charm as it is, but it could use some renovation investment.

“Pretty setting but needs some attention”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

Our family skis at an intermediate-advanced level. Kissing Bridge is located in a pretty valley and offers lots of hills that are good for the beginner to intermediate level skier or snowboarder. The kids really liked the terrain park offerings. And for a nature lover, the north and south paths across the top of the valley to reach other hills are very pretty.

On the negative side - a few things to mention. 1. This resort could really use a high speed quad or two. We found that the lifts took up a major part of the day. 2. The lift operators need more training. They are not quick on the button when a beginner or two or three (!!!) fall and need some assistance. The beginner tow rope hill did not have an operator at the bottom and many times, there was a pile-up of people needing help who had fallen using the lift. 3. Could be the conditions (lack of snow this year) but a good groomer on a few of the hills was needed. 4. We rented snowboard equipment and all eight sets of boots between us were wet. Yuck.

Overall value is pretty good. and resort is fairly cleanly kept.
