Bristol Mountain Reviews & Tips (14)

Me and my friends used to snowboard a lot here when living in Rochester two years ago. It was the irresponsible and unresponsive attitude of the arrogant managers and poor management of the resort (resulting in potential dangers) that eventually turned me away. After that we found out there were many resorts nearby with better overall experience, and never went back to Bristol Mt ever since. In short, I broke my shoulder there because of severely damaged trails -- there was a GIANT POTHOLE lying in the middle of a groomed tube, which was over 5 feet in diameter and 2 feet in depth. Unbelievable, right? Considering it was on March 2, maybe it was because of the rise in temperature, or just because the resort dug too deep to build this tube, anyway, it just existed there. And there were not any signs nearby informing people of this extreme danger. From then on, I contacted the resort immediately to tell them the problems needing to be fixed, and what I've got so far in two years is just two meaningless emails from the operation manager D*bra, who was reluctant to take any responsibility and denied the fact. And even worse, lately another Guest Services manager Kar* sent me an email blaming me for not contacting them earlier and she refused to look into this case at all, which is arrogant and just ridiculous. However, I still sent over the email history in the past two years, and then, again, no response. You know, at least it could be a better hill than this for skiing and snowboarding. Sadly, they just refused to improve.

Bristol is by far the best place to ski for over 210 miles (Bristol to Gore = 212 / Bristol to Hunter = 215). No super steeps but lots of well covered and well groomed cruisers with 1200' of vertical serviced by high speed chairs. Unfortunately there are three primary frustration points: 1) crowding on weekends; 2) weekend closure of Comet for racing, which is their only "2x Black Diamond" trail, and; 3) the management's reluctance to run the Galaxy Chair, their second high-speed quad, during off-peak hours. For a full priced ticket, if the slopes are covered the entire mountain should be open. The moral of the story is to show up for first tracks on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, burn a 4-Hour pass and then let the 20-somethings and hung-over fools duke it out for the rest of the day and definitely avoid peak crowds during weekends and holidays.

I liked this place back in the 90's. Now it is over priced over crowded and no fun..... Rather take a weekend spend the same amount at a fun mountain.... Place is not run well anymore....

Probably one of the worst run resorts on earth. The owner is a vile, money hungry human. Over crowded, over priced.

I'm a senior at RIT and have been going to this mountain for a couple of years now and to be honest, it really is NOT worth the price. Back home, I spent most boarding days at Whiteface and considering the lift tickets are about the same price, Bristol cant even come close. If you're in the Rochester are I strongly recommend trying out Swain. Its about 1/2 the cost and is still a decent mountain.

Nice mountain (when its open). Usually the only steep run is closed for racing so you are left with basically intermediate runs. They are in dire need of some new advanced runs.

Coming from a local Bristol is far overpriced for what you get. We usually avoid it and spend the money in VT or Whiteface. There isn't much in the way of advanced skiing. I had a night pass for years and you would get to the mountain only to have all the good runs closed for clubs/schools. Also the owner chooses to put money into lodges instead of new advanced runs. For instance a waffle house was added on a part of the mountain that you can only hike to or take the slowest lift on the mountain. Also a high speed quad was put in for section of mountain that already had 3 lifts running to it. Bottom line is the place is a zoo on the weekends and $62 is too much for the bother. There are never deals on tickets either.

One of the best mountains in Western NY. The only hill in this area that will make your quads burn. Great amenities, including high speed quads, paved parking lots and new lodges. Only con is that its almost too nice and has a bit of a sterile feel.

This mountain is twice as high as blue mountain in ontario and has half the skiers. It's a far far better mountain to ski on!! Love it
