Overview

Terry Peak is set on 450 acres of skiable terrain in the beautiful northern Black Hills of South Dakota. Its summit elevation is 7,050 feet and has a vertical drop of 1,100 feet, making it the biggest ski area in the heartland. Five chairlifts, including three high-speed quads, serve the facility with 20 miles of trails for all ability levels. An average annual snowfall of 150 inches, plus top-notch snowmaking over 60 percent of the mountain, insure great surface conditions throughout the season. The Holy Terror Half-Pipe, KSNO Radio (Terry Peak's own radion station), and a beginner chairlift for lessons only, are additional ammenities to this full-service area.

Nearby historic towns of Lead and Deadwood offer a variety of lodging including B&Bs, private rentals, and hotels.
