Oak Mountain Reviews & Tips (10)

Always a great day at Oak. Owners/staff/other skiers always friendly. Very family oriented. They do a great job with natural snow, and make some as well. If you are looking for high speed, double blacks-not for you. Great place to learn, have a great day of skiing, sharpen your skills. Lessons and rentals available. Pub/restaurant have great food and atmosphere for afterward. Snack bar open during the day. Go all the time!

Hadn't skied in 2o years, great day and a great place to get back into it! Conditions were absolutely perfect, and the staff and other skiers,couldn't have been more helpful! Reconnected with some old friends, and had the perfect day!

It was my first time at Oak Mtn. My parents live in Indian lake but I'm from NH. I honed my skiing in the east and spent 6 years as an instructor in Colorado. I found Oak Mtn. to be nice and relaxing. It was a Friday, so I pretty much did laps due to no lift line. I stayed on the groomed runs with the exception of trying the crud on the side of some trails. It was my first time this year so I wanted to take it easy besides the crud wanted to grab my outside edges of my skis because of a light crust on the snow. Very quaint mountain. The owner was the one to sell me my ticket in the morning. Basic cafeteria (no fireplace), food sold. Definitely a nice family place. I would ski there again.

Great place we have family that live in Speculator, so we all try to get to Oak at least once during the season, wish we could go more.

Great little mountain. Good draft beer selection and great wings in the bar. Can't beat the ticket & craft beer deal. We went on President's Day and pretty much had the mountain to ourselves. Hoping to go again tomorrow.

Nice little mountain for beginners. Slow lift is the biggest downside. Friendly staff, and not expensive. One run that is moderately challenging for advanced skiiers, but unless there is lots of snow, there will be bare spots on it. Would not recommend if you want challenging runs. Go to Gore or VT.

Our family has both boarders and skiers. Sign up for lessons early. They are a fantastic value. My daughter had a private lesson with Tom. He was super nice and did a great job pushing her, but staying within her comfort zone. My boys liked the terrain park...great for beginners. Lift lines were practically non-existent and the trails were perfect. I hesitate to give it a fantastic review, because I'd prefer to keep this little Adirondack gem to ourselves!

Great Mountain with a nice variety of trails. Some of the connecting trails weren't open during our visit due to lack of snow. One lift to the top (a little slow) but never a lift line and plenty of room on trails. Very nicely groomed. Lift had no bar to rest your skis on way up which lead to some leg fatigue. Very spacious Lodge & bar. Look forward to returning!

Oak is a terrific mid-sized ski/snowboard center.THOSE OF US WHO SKIED IN 1970`s USED A CHALLENGING T-BAR TO RIDE TO THE TOP ! The Chair lift is a heavenly improvement ! And what a great upgrade about ten years ago with the new lodge/restaurant,and Tubing Lanes. See you December 2011 at Oak ! Butch Waszkiewicz Utica NY e-mail: retire@dreamscape.com
