Small lift lines, great views, good grooming, excellent cruising runs.
Service in the bar/restaurant is consistently slow and poor.

Full review

I've been skiing Shawnee since it was Pleasant Mountain. 43 years and other than lift upgrades and minor cosmetic changes, it hasn't changed a ton. Its where I learned to ski and where my kids learning also. The snow making and grooming are very good. Terrain wise, the mountain is excellent for families. Although they boast some expert terrain. Most of the expert stuff is really intermediate. At 50, I'm not looking to kill myself, so the terrain is perfect for me. If you are looking for true expert terrain, head a hour north to Sunday River. Shawnee had only two drawbacks. 1) The lodge is still stuck in the 1950s. Cramped, outdated and joyless. 2) The bar / restaurant upstairs (Blizzards) has the worst service going. You have to hunt down servers and you will wait for a long time for your food. I'd you are looking for great family skiing without bells and whistles, Shawnee is great.
