“A great learning Mt for the little ones”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We took our guys to this mountain for a holiday afternoon. They have been to it before with a ski group they a members of, but we (the parents) had never been there.
Let's just say that for anyone who is an average skier or above, this will feel like a bunny slope. Very few challenges and you will spend more time on the lift lines than on the hill.
However....The place was chock full of tiny ones learning to ski. From 2 years and up i would guess were learning. It seemed that they have a great, attentive staff to teach, and I believe that beginner skiers can get free lessons (check their website).

“Fun for kids”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Very crowded and fulla kids! They seem to love it! Decent lounge and restaurant where you can wait for your kids while they have fun unless you indulge also.

“Great family getaway from NYC”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Don't expect the Rockies, but given the proximity to New York City - 1 hr 15 min from our house in Lower Westchester Co - this place is wonderful. Definitely kid-friendly, my 4-year old learned to ski here. We've tried both a Saturday and a weekday. Weekend wasn't too crowded, even though only 2 lifts were operating, never had to wait more than 2 min in line. The free beginner lessons on weekends are a nice gesture - best if you make the 10am session, we observed that later sessions get crowded.

Our Monday visit was heaven - hardly anyone there when we arrived at 11am. By 4pm the school groups arrived but still no complaints. Wide, well groomed beginner trails, 2 challenging black diamonds, a very usable bunny slope, and friendly staff. The base lodge is sunny, comfy, safe for stashing your stuff if you don't want to bother with a locker. Bathrooms are clean. We packed snacks so cannot comment on the caf. The clip below shows a run on one of the green trails - and my son skiing it w/out falling :-)

“Small”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Uncomfortable dirty lodge, expensive snacks and treets, very Icy snow conditions, very small ski area with few lifts and very few slopes. expensive lift tickets for such a small site.
