Reviews for Bretton Woods
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.
Best lift system/no lift lines.
Classiest ski area in NE. Lodges are nice!
Advanced skiers that like groomed terrain get bored fast. There is not enough groomed expert/ intermediate trails. They need to groom more expert/intermediate trails.... Full Review
Bretton Woods offered a variety of trails levels that were appealing to us. The trail grooming is by far the best. Clearly their trail grooming team takes pride in their work and has really done a great job this year. We were very happy with the longer trails that had an incline. Lift lines are outside of their control, especially with the pandemic. We had a great time.... Full Review
Superior skiing on very well groomed trails. Beginners slope is prime. Great base on all the trails. So much fun.... Full Review
Excellent value all around - great fun for whole family and the BEST all day ski school instructors ( Hobbit program for toddlers through age 12 yrs old from 9 am to 3 pm). Kids learn great ski skills that will last a lifetime and progress quickly while having fun and making new friends. My kids went from beginners to advanced intermediate in just 5 days and loved every minute of it. Also gave parents and extended family chance to ski and relax on their own! Terrific staff in a historic casual friendly New England setting. Easy rentals and great rapid shuttle bus service. Call before your room is assigned as some rooms and other parts of hotel still need an upgrade, but usually hotel rooms are priced accordingly, so overall a great value! We had lots of family fun in a safe friendly welcoming atmosphere. ... Full Review
Superior grooming and just a well cared for resort. They have gone the extra mile to make a great outdoor experience for people of all levels. Something for everybody... Full Review
Kudos to Gonzo on the lifts, Angela and Becky in the bar/restaurants. Excellent employees with personality and professionalism. ... Full Review
When fully open, BW is a wonderful place to ski, with a good mix of groomers, natural snow trails and glades. The new gondola, however, is a complete waste of ski resources, offering no new terrain or useful access that doesn't already exist. It crowds both the bottom access and the "top" egress. I realize it has more to do with summer functions and a restaurant not yet open, but, really, if they'd put a chair to the top of Mt. Stickney with a dozen new trails, they'd really have something at half the cost. And, of course, skiers will have to pay the freight for the cost of the summer gondola. I'll stick to the chairs, thank you.... Full Review
Great mountain for skiers who like open trails with good grooming or glade skiing. The glades are unbeatable. However, I am disappointed year after year by the terrain park. It seems to get smaller every year and on this year's map there is only one small park. I will never understand why they don't have a dedicated trail for a good, long park. Just because Loon wins the park battle doesn't mean everyone else should just surrender. Of all the surrounding mountains, this one has the worst parks because they don't seem to care about attracting skiers and boarders whose wallets aren't full.... Full Review
It was not groomed!! Too much ungroomed snow means less fun! And food is a total rip off... Full Review
