Reviews for Tussey Mountain
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.
Tussey is a decent place to learn to ski and improve your skills. It won't challenge the advanced skier. The snow conditions are hit and miss and the grooming could be better. If you go on weekdays before 4 pm, you'll practically have the place to yourself. The lift is old and slow, but the convenience from the State College area still makes it worth it for a few hours of skiing.... Full Review
Nice local mountain close to State College and Penn State. No crowds and you can really lap the mountain, but no challenge for advanced skiers, but still fun. We ski here sometimes during the week and really enjoy the 2 hour pass. The pass is reasonably priced and you can get 20 runs in two hours.... Full Review
Brought my two sons for a day trip to learn to ski. Resort was not crowded. Staff was friendly and helpful, resort implemented solid covid protocols. We had a great time and will be coming back with mom and the third son to learn and Dad and other two to make track on the big slopes!... Full Review
Given its Central Pennsylvania location, the snow conditions are superb! Tussey Mountain is home to the best lift in the world, the iconic T-bar! Also, they offer awesome go carting and mini golf in the off season! All in all, Tussey Mountain is the best ski resort ever and everyone should experience its epicness!!!... Full Review
Tussey is a small mountain offering great learn to ski programs in a safe and secure environment. It fulfills this mission well in a family friendly way. You can enjoy the slopes for a while if you are a better skier, but this is not an expert's destination resort and it is not fair to compare Tussey to larger resorts in the northeast or the west. The cost is also much more reasonable than resorts like Vail (a great place to learn before you go). ... Full Review
To me Tussey represents what skiing is all about. This small quirky "mountain" located a stones throw from the great college town of State College, PA makes you appreciate the little things that make skiing great. I can honestly say I have never had a bad time here. Sure its small, icy, and only has one legitimate lift, but it is a great value! I mean $5 Fridays?? Come on! That's pretty awesome. It has a gnarly atmosphere too! The super friendly staff are always playing rad music every night of the week and if the screams of drunk college kids barreling down the snowtube park aren't enough to make you laugh, the constant crashes from the massive amount of people learning to ski for the first time sure will. Tussey is not the kind of place you spend a weekend at, it is a place you go for a few hours at night for next to no money to get a few turns in, knock back a few beers share many many laughs and make fond memories. Truly Pennsylvania skiing at its finest!... Full Review

I went to Tussey Mountain to go skiing today for the first time while on a business trip. Had two 1 hour lessons with the instructor Blake. He was a great teacher and I learned a lot. Definitely would recomend Tussey. Good prices also.... Full Review
Not sure what previous negative reviewers expect, but Tussey Mountain excels with what it has. This is a small mountain with friendly employees. Only 1 main chairlift, but there are never extremely long lines. You can quickly park your car and get on the lifts for some runs, and all at reasonable prices (check out their specials). This isn't a place where you will vacation at, but if you are in the area, it beats driving hours to pay hundreds of dollars and wait in lines. ... Full Review
