Terrible terrible terrible! Went to tubing hills ...session was 7-9 snack bar was closed before our session ended...so many people we only got to go down 3 times.... bar was closed and I was able to purchase tickets even AFTER IT SAID SOLD OUT!!! so they do not follow any covid rules and do not make people follow mask rules like stated on website! 75$ for 3 ppl and could only go down 3 times and not all the hills were even open! Shame shame they are ripping people off!! Don't waste your time nor money! ... Full Review
Before writing a review on a ski resort, one must consider the geographic location of said resort. Ohio is not necessarily riddled with mountains. Taking that into account, Boston Mills-Brandywine is a spectacular resort. Vail resorts has purchased it for the 2021 season and is doing an outstanding job operating the ski areas. Yes, seasoned skiers and boarders won't be particularly challenged by the terrain, but consider that you are in the Greater Cleveland, OH area, skiing. This is a spectacular resort and great place to go to get out on the snow without traveling for the better portion of your day. Get out there and shred!... Full Review
Not had fun and Very accessible to greater Cleveland area overall for the price fine and great place to take the family.... Full Review
It is nice... for ohio. Starting off with the food, it is very good and has many options but on the downside it is very pricy. The slopes are very good for beginners as well as experienced but experts would not be satisfied. It is very fun to go when it gets darker and has a wide variety of slopes. ... Full Review
I learned how to snowboard here and I thought that I could never conquer any of the Black Diamonds there. Now, having been down every slope at BMBWAV and also most slopes in other places, like Jackson Hole and Vail, it still gives me that childhood feeling. If only I could have seen where I am today. Parents: PLEASE take your kids to Boston Mills to learn! You won’t regret it. Overall, pretty decently conditioned slopes compared with some gnarly terrain make for a great experience.... Full Review
trails are all begginer besides for tiger and last black on other mountain buttermilk is definitely not a blue i would compare it to a normal begginer not even green i felt that even though ther bunny hill is smaller it was more green then buttermilk... Full Review
So you start with summit, a green hill with multiple fall lines and a grade that's too steep for beginners. then you have buttermilk that starts off at a excellent beginner grade then drops like off quickly giving low level intermediates a drastic change in skiing, peters pride s a nice run when they don't have terrain park features with blind landings where the normal skier turn across to control their speed. North Bowl is a good advanced hill sometimes has a mogul field up at the top, they're usually hard as a rock. Croyle is the best hill for the advanced skier at the resort, but it's usually being raced on. Tiger is like the the Melt Challenge, it looks awesome, you want to prove yourself, you don't really enjoy it, and everyone kinda looks at you like oh you're that guy.
so besides the hill they're the lodge, it's old, it's warm, its comforting, it's lined with tables from an elementary school covered in ski bags, and clothes left by people skiing to hold a table the whole day. My HS ski club goes there on Tuesdays, it's not that bad during the week but on the weekends it's a mad house. my uncle was in ski club before they sold to Peak resorts and told me how they would make snow as soon as they could, and open as early as possible, and now, they have the GM on the morning of 11/13 right before Cleveland gets pounded with cold weather and tons of snow saying its a weather phenomena, a week later it's still cold, and the warm up is 50 deg. highs for 2 days with rain starting 2 days from now, do you have any idea how much snow you can make in 9 day with temperatures that are always below 20 degrees? I would estimate enough to cover the whole resort in about 18-24" of base because I've seen them do it the week before Christmas last year. and that's counting the 6" of snow they already have. ...
