Terry Peak snowmaking

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.

Terry Peak Ski Area - Terry peak had a rail jam last night. Only problem, NO RAILS!!! I checked their Facebook and it definitely says rail jam, not box jam. Their park is set up for kids. Not one challenging feature. Time to switch to Deer! They're workin  - © Tyler
