Reviews for Timber Ridge
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
A cheap place to ski, but don't expect much. Facilities are a bit dirty. One employee was helpful when I needed assistance, however she reeked of cigarette. ... Full Review
This is my favorite SW Michigan hill. It's less crowded than nearby Bittersweet and the terrain is more varied, especially when the entire hill is open. The staff is very friendly and ski patrol can be easily located. The base area is very spread out. Coming the right side of the hill makes for a VERY long walk back to the lodge. This is my least favorite lodge of all the lodges I have been in. It's incredibly awkwardly laid out and requires a lot of walking and climbing in ski boots.
It has a nice fireplace and a slightly larger than average ski hill menu, but you're going to work to get to them.

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.... Full Review
Timber Ridge is like my second home. I go there as often as I can, and always have a good time. The hills are the best its going to get in south west Michigan, and the Terrain parks are the best around. The park crew always does a great job making sure the features are safe and a lot of fun. The 2 parks also have a tow rope, which is great for hitting the same feature over and over, or just getting hot laps. Everyone is really friendly, and they have some pretty decent food. Cruising the regular hills is lots of fun too, and nothing beats skiing with some friends here. Great place!... Full Review
The TR Park is great lots to view, ski/board, always someone around to help you, give advice, etc. The ski shop is loaded with great equipment, awesome staff that are very knowledgeable and pricing is similar to box stores, however you have the chance to demo, always have ongoing weekend ski/board reps almost every weekend. These people work hard to give you all you can locally or without having to drive hours and hours. Nastar almost every weekend, live music, friendly atmosphere, great food an all around great place. ... Full Review
