Reviews for Shawnee Mountain Ski Area
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.
This place is absolutely incredible. We are Camelback season pass holders but are deeply concerned about the direction of their ski school. I have an Indy Pass so I decided I had nothing to lose and check out Shawnees ski school. For the same price as 1.5 hours at Camelback you get 3 hours at Shawnee and the level of teaching is far higher. This ski area is clearly dedicated to growing the sport of skiing and the local community. The terrain is generally very mild so it’s fantastic for getting your whole family into the sport....

Great family resort with a nice high-speed quad chair and good variety of trails. Everyone is really nice too. It’s unpretentious here so nobody will laugh at you for having last year’s skis haha. The only thing I wish was better is that the parking is kinda far away.... Full Review
Great area to learn. Small resort but easy to navigate. Bunny hill area is good for many levels and great for learning new skills rather than constantly going to runs ... Full Review

This is the best place ever to learn to ski in a friendly and relaxed environment. Both of my boys, Robbie aged 3 and Ittie aged 6 had a great time during the 5 days we skied between Christmas and New Year's. Shout out to Robbie's amazing private teacher Theresa, who made his experience so great and managed to even take him to the bunny hill during his last lesson. Ittie's mountain cruiser teachers Walter (who we later discovered also moonlights in a band - great music!), Bruno and Alexandra were also pretty awesome and got him to really enjoy his time on the big slopes. Billy was great for my lesson and taught me so much more that I got out of previous lessons at other places. Mike and Robin, who are some of the folks that run the ski school program were also amazing and really accommodating when Ittie needed to test out of his age group and join a more advanced program for older kids. Overall, we are so grateful for an amazing experience - great job everyone! We have already booked out tickets for President's day weekend and are looking forward to being back here. ... Full Review
Nice place to learn, and ski at. Snowboard terrain looks good when they have enough snow. Some trail areas in the middle and bottom are congested and a bit hazardous with not enough room for everyone.... Full Review
Shawnee is my favorite to go to year after year. Great for my whole family, including the little ones. Childrens lesson programs were really great for teaching hands-on learning.... Full Review

Shawnee is a very nice family friendly mountain. It has a terrain park with 3 trails. Has a nice seven lifts that barley have lines. The lodge is old but they have good food no waffle stand though. My favorite part though is it has green trails and black diamonds and
Intermediate trails not just a lot of green and black

Total rip off!!! They made me pay for my 1 y/o just to be able to go in the area for snow tuning even though he will not ride. They taking advantage of the situation and location of the tubing area. They have the tubing all the way to the end so far from sitting area. Since ofcourse everybody wanted to do snow tubing it would be very inconvenient to alternate staying with my 1 y/o when the lodge ( food court) and the tubing area are located at opposite ends and is a good distance to walk. Also you came as a family to enjoy together but you'll end up experiencing the snow tubing seperately if you do not pay the 30$ to be able to have the 1 y/o in the tubing area. In other words this location is not family friendly they take advantage of the situation to charge unnecessarily. ... Full Review
