Full review

This place is great! The staff is amazing! I ski all over the country and it would be hard to find a ski area of this size with this much character. The snow quality at Deer Mountain is much better than the snow at the other ski area in the black hills. The ski school people are unmatched in terms of their passion and overall love for the sport. The people that work there really care that you are having a good time. The owner is always out skiing on the mountain checking to see if you are having fun. There aren't a lot of arbitrary rules and the general vibe is like being in an 80s- 90s ski movie. The apres ski is great, at the end of the day there will be three or four talented people playing guitars and singing, cheese and crackers, a full bar and a bunch of riders hanging out. If you come to the Black Hills to ski, Deer Mountain is the best of the two options you have.
