Brandywine and sister ski area Boston Mills may have the greatest lift capacity in Ohio with a capacity of 20,000 people an hour. The lifts are synchronized to control the number of skiers on the slopes. Night skiing is popular on Friday and Saturday nights. Lift tickets are interchangeable, and the ski areas are just minutes apart.
The ski area is a little over 30 minutes from Cleveland. The nearest airport is the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. You can get to Brandywine Ski Resort by bus or train (National Park Scenic Railway).
The combined vertical of the two ski resorts is 264 feet. Collectively, they offer 18 trails on 88 skiable acres with a total of 16 lifts (1 conveyor, 4 surface tows, 2 doubles, 7 trip and 2 quads). The terrain levels are 27% beginner, 27% intermediate and 46% advanced. There are 5 terrain parks and 100% snowmaking coverage.
There is shuttle service between the two resorts. A large art fest happens during the summer. With Boston Mills having the most terrain parks (three), it is geared more towards snowboarders and freestylers.
