Snow Ridge Reviews & Tips (3)

I ski and ride. Snow Ridge gets a ton of snow and there are some good challenging trails along with some easy ones. I would only take the black diamond trails on the right side (from the bottom of the mountain) if the far right (again, from the bottom) lift is running. Otherwise you are on for quite a walk back to the main lift. I am not a park rider, but the park looks to have some decent rails and such. Not a lot of vertical, but a good place to ski and ride for not a lot of money. They groom well, but leave moguls where it counts. Cheap tune if you need your skis or board done. Feb 2014 - $14 +tax Ask Elton in the ski shop about his trips out West... Good stories Chairs are only doubles and run pretty slow. I will return

Went very late in the season and there was still plenty of snow but it took a while to figure out which trails were still in good shape. My girlfriend was having a good time on the beginner hills which were actually a really good size for a new skier. She was able to get a ton of practice getting on and off the ski lifts and the hills are big enough to get up a lot of speed if that's what you're looking to practice.

The conditions of the trails really sucked there were pieces of ice sticking up everywhere. Worse conditions I have ever seen
