Thunder Ridge may have great instructors and affordably priced, but I got to tell you that it's the worst place to ski. The mountain is extremely small and I think it is down right dangerous!!! There is inadequate lighting, there are lights that are continuously not working and there are blind/dark spots. Can the owners afford to upgrade anything here...it's been like this for a number of recent years. This is truly bare-bones-minimum skiing. Remember...you get what you pay for!
