Friendly atmosphere, personal service, great ski school
Older style lodge, antiquated ski equipment, some older lifts
I am a regular skier at this resort, and it fits my needs as an intermediate skier. A firm believer in supporting small business, I feel an obligation to ski where the place is family owned and operated. Corporate-owned Bittersweet is the other local option, and its runs are wonderful, but Timber Ridge provides the whole package of friendly people, reasonable prices, and excellent ski instructors. I have progressed so much in my ability to ski over the last few years thanks to bi-weekly lessons. The atmosphere is definitely down-home, and that is what gives this place its "charm." I wish they would upgrade the facilities and get some new rental equipment (really, really old), but hopefully that Is down the line.
