Great beginner terrain, atmosphere, instruction
Lack of Vertical, Variety of Trails
Disclaimer: I am a beginner; I have gone skiing to two resorts. Gunstock in NH which is amazing, and Otis Ridge. It was at Otis where I learned to ski. The resort itself is very small and lacks variety; however it serves its purpose as a family mountain. The staff are very friendly and the instructors are amazing. If you want to take the kids to learn how to ski/board or just want to go for an hour or two, then visit Otis. The trails themselves are well balanced despite their numbers. For the speed demons in all of us try the big hill in the middle, Slalom ( I personally hit 50 mph, myself ). For the winding twists and turns try Ridge Run/John's Cliff or Dutchman. If you want to go with the kids, take them down Acorn or Robber Oak. Give this mountain a try. After going here twice, I loved it so much that I got season passes for my family. Its a great mountain and its worth the drive!!!!
