Reviews for Greek Peak
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.
Fun local ski/snowboard resort, lots of families, great place to learn and progress. Greek Peak maximizes the 950ft vertical drop across 3 peaks with a good mix of trails and terrain options, including some glades and decent park features. Definitely gets crowded on weekends! Some lifts are older and not always working, which makes crowding even worse. Night skiing is a nice option. Trails are not always open and snow conditions are quite variable, which can result in wet/icy days, so best to check local weather conditions. The lodge is crowded and not the cleanest facility ever. Parking is okay. Apres ski is very limited to almost nonexistent. Avoid their undercooked grill food to stay clear of food poisoning. We now bring our own food. RFID for lifts works well and attendants are generally polite and helpful. Great value and lots of fun when the conditions are good!... Full Review
good choice when I get out the SYR airport, only 1 hr to this resort. Friday night pass, whole day pass in Saturday and Sunday. Then, come back to Miami at Sunday night.... Full Review
It’s worth the 14 dollar difference to drive a few extra minutes to Greek to avoid Song and Lab. It’s actually much bigger than the other 2 and can spend the whole day there! ... Full Review
This review is to truly send gratitude to the staff at Greek Peak. They are wonderful, helpful encouraging and friendly! Connor and Kevin, our childrens private instructors were phenomenal. Informative and professional, they exceeded our expectations. Sean (or Shaun or Shawn... so sorry I don't know the spelling!) the manager is a mild mannered gentle and calm man who could not go out of way enough for us. Tara at rentals is so experienced and can handle any issue. Jason who handles the skis and bindings, was so pleasant patient and mild mannered. And finally Kavleigh, the sweet young woman who fitted the children for boots, was so attentive to the children. What more could we ask for on our sons birthday.... and mind you they didnt even know. They naturally behaved like great humans because they are! Thank you all for such a beautiful day... perfection all around. ... Full Review
After paying $90 for a day pass it was discouraging to wait for 30-45 minutes to get on the only operating lift in the base area that took me to mid mountain, where there was another line equally long to get to the top so it would be possible to ski another area with an operating lift. Being a Sunday afternoon it was crowded. And this situation continued most of the afternoon. Also, if someone’s RFID pass didn’t read the operators stopped loading chairs until they figured it out. Amid huge waiting lines 6 or more chairs we’re going up EMPTY. And the RFID finally worked. So priority was on someone slipping by that didn’t pay more than the paying customers waiting in extended lines due to the lift problems.
Taking a break to give time for the lifts to be fixed, my party went to the restaurant/bar, which was JAMMED with unmasked people ( 3 deep at the bar ). There was no organization in the overflowing lift lines, so it was basically a mob, (thankfully staying patient) with lots of unmasked people jammed together. Basically the infrastructure for getting skiers to the top was almost non-functional. It’s mid January, so really no good reason for the two main lifts ( including the quad) to be shut down for long periods of time mid-day/ afternoon. Seems pretty profitable for the mountain tho… lots of tickets sold and then rocking’ the restaurant and bar as people tried to make the best of a bad situation. It really doesn’t matter how the slopes are if there is hardly any lift service or plan to manage crowds due to lift breakdown.
Finally, attention to COVID guidelines posted by the resort were not followed by employees, and 3 indoor ticket sellers had masks below their nose and some under their chin. I expect employees to comply with the posted guidelines. And the bar/ restaurant was an OMICRON Petri dish.
Very disappointed. ... Full Review
I've been skiing at Greek from the age of 11. (59 yrs.) There have been some great improvements over the past 5yrs.BUT a big but. The Grooming was better in the 70s when snow making was archaic compaired to today.I don't get it. Death cookies even after a week of 2 feet of natural snow? Still love GP. Moving toward alternatives. Elk Pa. is one.... Full Review
I went to ski yesterday. I’ve been going here for many years. The following are positive attributes of Greek Peak. Staff are friendly and helpful. They make sure you get on the lifts safely. Over all grooming of the trails is good. Selection of trails is good as well. For the area overall a good mountain. Now for the negative aspects. Too many trails are consistently closed, Zeus being one such slope. Also I didn’t like the fact that while they were making snow on Zeus ,which incidentally was not opened, people on the ski lift had to turn their face away to avoid the free flowing snow debris . It just seemed a little obnoxious. There are a couple beginner trails where there aren’t enough lights and areas where it is discouragingly dark. At first I thought maybe it was a broken light , but upon inspection , I realized there were no light poles. This is quite alarming and lights need to be put up . On expert trails I noticed some areas had thin amount of snow , to the extent that it was almost bare. I wish the depth of snow could be consistent from top to bottom. The chair lifts seem unreasonably slow , taking too much time away from being on the trails. Also they should put more money into the ski lifts as they are not aesthetically pleasing ( old, worn) in appearance . The building where you get your ski pass and rental need to be updated . It looks a little decrepit and dingy. Please put money into making it look nicer. With that said , I think a 3 star review is fair. It is a good place to ski, it just needs a little more attention to detail. ... Full Review
I have a season pass here. And I love it a lot. Great skiing, and the glades are awesome. Not as good as the west, but the best I have skiied in the East. Great Staff and great mountain. Their is something to do for everyone, and I think that any level of skiier could appreciate. Has a lot of varied terrain. Lots of different routes and they allow free skiing. Recommend 10/10. ...

Skied the sunday of pres day weekend. No problem with crowds, able to move around, ride different lifts, and generally avoid the clogs. Conditions were good, groomed packed powder, with the usual ice in the afternoon down the middle of the steeper areas, easily avoided if skiing the edges of the slope. The place had a good vibe, smiling people, friendly lifties, and a lovely barmaid in the tiki hut serving a nice hazy IPA. We also took advantage of the ski finger lakes discount, so 30 percent off a ticket! We will be back for sure!... Full Review
