Tyrol Basin Reviews & Tips (8)

Tyrol invited a boot fitter B&B fitters to park for a few days. He does evaluations, custom liners/foot beds- great idea! The snow softened up, the bumps were great, varied terrain and very friendly staff. Great intermediate terrain, racing and freestyle terrain. Nicely done.

Nice play to ski. The new magic carpet is awesome for beginners and kids. I took my 2 year old daughter skiing and it was so convenient and easy with the magic carpet. The terrain park was ok. A lot of rails, but no jumps. I prefer to hit a variety of jumps rather than rails, but tyrol does not have jumps available (small, medium, or large). I would go to tyrol again if they decided to put up a line of 3 or 4 jumps, but until that happens I'll go to other ski hills.

Amazing value for a $14 lift ticket. The jump line was fun and they had alot of rail features to ride. Once it warmed up the pipe was ok, well at least one side of it was ride able. I think they could really benefit from a small park crew, the transitions of the jumps/pipe walls could use some TLC.

Call the office to see if they have any events planned - the website won't tell you everything. We went out on a Friday (no school) and had a great day, but as the evening approched, they closed a few runs due to a race we didn't know about. There aren't a ton of runs there, so when they close two of them, it impacts what you're doing as a recreational skier. It wasn't THAT big of a deal, as we were near the end of our day anyway, but if I was staying longer, it would have bothered me more. BUT, it was a great hill to "scratch the itch" - close to Cross Plains, and nice runs with lots of character. I'll return.

Great place to start skiing. we bought the beginners package for the whole family which included rental, lesson and unlimited lifts on beginners slopes- and believe me- you will not need more if you just a beginner. we arrived there on the very warm day (46 F) and i was skeptical about the quality of the runs but i was wrong- snow was great. Had lots of fun, loved it and will definitely be back! Staff is extremely friendly and customer service oriented!

Just skied Tyrol Basin for the first time on Thursday. What a beautiful little resort! We were blessed to get some fresh snow fast giving us powder and reduced visibility for a while, perfect conditions. Lots of fun freestyle to enjoy, but my skis stay on the snow. The runs are marked fairly true to their level of difficulty. All are very good and fun, even the easy ones. The chair lifts were a little slow here too, and the Twister chair left could have used some more snow on the landing at the top to help people get off safer. After a great half day of skiing, the chalet was a warm inviting place to relax before the long drive home. I'll be back some day, this place is fun!

try the 12 dollar Tuesday and then try a Bloody Mary in the bar. it's got a very welcoming homey feel and the terrain can keep up with me. lots of runs of all kinds of runs and a unreal park with an air bag jump. I will go again.
