Tuxedo Ridge Reviews & Tips (14)

This was my first time skiing and I was very impressed with the place- good staff, nice lodge, great snow, and nice trails. I signed up for a group lesson with a group of friends (we were all first-time skiers) and our instructor was about four years younger (he looked about 14) and he didn't say much. That was pretty much a waste of 30$ but besides for that I had a wonderful time and I would definitely go back!

I went there on President's day with expected crowed on holiday. It's OK for the price IF you have your own gear. Rental equipment was very old (specially boots) and short of supply. NO magic carpet and a bit steeper bunny slope so it's not good for the very first timer. Blue courses are ok but too much flat sections. The lynx part is all flat so much skating is required. The food is way overpriced.

There's no one there mid-week! Runs are quite short but a beginner will get plenty of practice time. My complaint about TR is the bathrooms: only one set of very small bathrooms and the men's is sort of stinky.

I was very impressed with Tuxedo Ridge - for the two little beginners I brought with me. We went on New Year's Eve, right before the big snow storm. Granular conditions were decent for the bunny slope. Kids group lesson was excellent for the price ($50 for one hour, rentals and lift). And they got a few runs in. Not a place that I would go regularly as an advanced skier. But for a family of 4 to ski the day for $200... Not bad.

On the plus side......great value from Liftopia, not far from home, cute little lodge, no lines even though it was a Saturday. Down side......snow conditions were terrible. There were dirt patches,snow was not smooth and my skiis kept catching in the snow.

No magic carpet or towrope here, but it has a relatively low and slow ski lift for beginners. It takes you to the beginners hill which is bigger than the average bunny hill. Good place if you want something more then the bunny hill and magic carpet but do not feel ready for an average ski lift or long trails. Oh it's also perfect if you want to stay at the bottom of the hill and watch your kids go themselves. You can see them the whole time from the bottom. This has been my third time there and we have never hit crowds. Kind staff but food a bit expensive for what you get.

Nice little mountain, fair value for the price ($22 for a Sunday thanks to Liftopia), seems like it would be a good place to learn and the staff definitely cares about this mountain and making sure people have a good time. If the left most side of the mountain was open, it would have been better. The left most trail, that looks like it should have moguls, was closed and the left most chair lift was broken along what was the best non-mogul run. With that said, it was great for a 4 hour day trip, good warmup for bigger mountains next weekend.

Nice place for $18.99 per ticket through Liftopia. Bit of a rip off at the normal rates. Went Sunday after a foot of snow. Best local conditions I've every skiied BUT was too crowded by lunch time. Parking lot worker said it was the biggest crowd he's ever seen. Part of problem was the third ski lift is broken for the season. Great place with normal crowds to take a young kid but for real skiing, hit the Poconos. Restrooms were so gross and old I actually complained to management. Watch out for getting on the bunny slop lift. Your skis drag along the ground a bit as it's very flat.

I went on a weekend after a major snowfall, so the snow quality was good. My disappointment was that it was so crowded, they didn't even have enough poles for the ski rentals. They should have as many sets of poles as they do skiis. The one slope that cuts across the mountain has an upward portion thus causes one to stop and you have to push your way over to the next slope

For the price very worth it. Good slopes for beginner- intermediate. Only one lift going to the higher slopes so lines can get a bit long in the middle of the day.

Fred Intermediate Snowboarder
good for beginners, not bad for the price even if you are high intermediate (black runs are decent), free beginner lessons, cheap tickets. lifts a bit slow. rentals are ridiculous though: extremely expensive ($33 for rental at such a small mountain!) and low-quality skis, not sharpened in years. and they ran out of poles "because they were so busy this day"! for this price, they give bad skis and no poles??? Extremely overpriced cafeteria: over $4 for fountain soda, $7 for a burger... bottom line: go for a cheap day trip, but bring your own skis and food

Pretty good place for beginning and intermediate skiers. Not too many people. It's a great deal.

I got the package on Liftopia for a night lesson plus lift ticket plus rental. It was a great deal! There were only two people in my group lesson, so it was nearly private. There were hardly any people there that evening, so no lines. The beginner area was nice. I liked the bunny hill. It is 650 feet so you feel like you're actually able to ski, even if you're just learning. I would definitely go again!
