We love Bristol Mountain. We have 3 kids ,ages 8,7 and 5,who have learned to ski there. The children's ski school is wonderful. Mary goes way beyond the call of duty whenever she can to help us in any way. We all love it! We do have a couple of suggestions:
Over the years, the timing of the children's lessions has changed making it much more difficult for adults to have a nice ski day. Previously, we could drop our kids off in ski school for the morning or until 2:30 or 3. Now the lessons are short (1.5 hours) and the lessons are not linked so we must come back in and get our kids and then wait for an hour and then take them back to class...the other way was MUCH BETTER for the parents as we actually could ski a couple of hours rather than a couple of runs before going back in.
Although the staff really tries to be efficient, it appears that the computer system is unduly burdensome and it takes forever to check in...even if we have been there for several days!!! Please consider offering several day tickets and lessons as it would greatly streamline the process. Also, we rent equipment...please offer multiday packages for equipment too...it just wastes everyone's time to go through the burdensome computer process daily.
Finally, please consider offering some healthier foods in the restaurants ( a good salad bar, healthy sandwiches, better soups and yogurts) and please start the lunch warm food menu earlier as kids trying to make the 11:30 class can't even order warm food in the ski school lodge til 11 am and it often takes 10 or 15 minutes to get it. Thanks!!!!
