Thunder ridge is the only mountain where you can drop a child that can ski off alone or to find friends while you sit in the lodge and keep an eye on the one way in and one way out. feeling safe your child can not get lost, or walk off with a stranger. , This is the best aspect about the place. Family run. Worker are not grumpy, they are all busy working hard to do a lot with the little " snow, vertical drop " they have so you have a good time. THis is the best moutain for what it. Looking for a VErmont Mt? go to Vermont. Looking for a fun nice place around where you live? Thunder ridge has it all. Walk in the repair shop find people that love skiers that want you to get back on the snow not drain your wallet. Thunder ridge a nice place!!

A small mountain, perfect for beginners & intermediates. Close by & great prices for a few hours after school. Definitely try going during the weekday where there are no lines at all. All my kids learned to ski there & the ski patrol was helpful, patient, friendly & skilled. They have snow making, but I'm hoping w/ better snowfall all runs will be open this year. See you on the lifts!

We went to Thunder Ridge on the weekday, so there was no crowd and no lines on the lift. It is a small mountain and perfect for a beginners. My beginner son and wife had a good time. Staff was very friendly. Yes it needs some updating but place is very close to NYC and LI with affordable lift prices. Btw, ski school instructors were also very good.

Major family mountain. Fine for someone who is just starting out and/or a family. Not fine for a group of 21+ year olds (with no kids) who are experienced. Perfect though for a quick ski after work.

Thunder Ridge is a great mountain for beginners. Its small, well priced and very friendly. They didn't have many runs open but hopefully some cold weather will change that. I'm sure I'll be back there again.
