My family has been skiing here for 6-years and we have had season passes for many of those years. Blue mountain has less expensive season passes and you get more days on this hill at Blue - i.e. 5x7 vice 5x5 at MSLM. The lodge doesn't have very good amenities as compared to Blue or Horseshoe. The hill is decent but I echo some of the issues with respect to the grooming of runs for the evening skiers. ... Full Review

My experience at Moonstone was pretty negative. After attempting to get my “S” on the bunny hill about 15 times and 3 of which were done exactly how the sign directed, I decided to take a break and buy some lunch at the cafeteria. We bought poutine wich costed $9 for a good sized plate of hard fries, salty gravy and melted cheese curds. Additionally we bought nachos for $4 which were stale chips with a disappointing cheese. Typical for a movie theatre nacho but disaponting. After my lunch (25 minutes) we went back out to try and get our “S” and were told that the testing was over for the day. This was at 1:15pm which meant if you were alike me who didn’t get your “S” before that time you were stuck on te bunny hill until closing at 9pm. Extremely disappointing. ... Full Review

Great place to ski. My kids learned to ski here. All the staff were friendly and helpful from sales to rentals to ski lift kids. We rented ski's from the helpful staff and went on the bunny hills which had very safe "escalators" to bring them to the top. They have enough challenge for beginner to intermediate level skiers. They have LOTS of snow machines and lift lines are short. The rental prices are decent. They have a chalet that serves food and a place to bring your own food and eat. There is no "resort" area with restaurants but that's fine with me.... Full Review

Been to MSLMS a few times this season and things were fine, but this past Saturday when the weather was a big warmer the snow built up into huge piles. I know Blue Mountain actually grooms their hills, MSLMS doesn't seem to do anything. The worse is for people coming in the evenings to totally messed up conditions. We usually stay for night skiing but decided to leave super early since it was totally unskiiable. They really should invest in grooming if conditions becomes poor. I've been to Blue twice and both times they closed off areas and groomed during the day. So much safer with better conditions. I guess being busier Blue Mountain can invest more money to make things better for the customer.... Full Review

My kids are intermediate skiers. I am an intermediate/advanced skier. This hill is the best for both of us. It is much better than Horseshoe...the hills are larger, less waiting time at the lifts, the lifts are faster, more variety of runs, etc. The beginners stay on the south side, out of the way. At Horseshoe, the beginners are mixed in all over the place and get in the way. It is much less busy than Blue Mountain. It is smaller than Blue and has less going on outside of skiing. It is too bad there is no village at St Louis. No condos. We stayed at the condos near Horseshoe, then drive 15 minutes to St. Louis. Totally worth the drive! My kids think this is the best hill in Ontario that is within a few hours from Toronto (they are 10 and 12). I agree. Snow Valley is decent, but much smaller. Glen Eden is much smaller....

A smaller in height hill but one that has the most pristine grooming of any hill I've ever seen as well as the best maintained terrain parks possibly in Canada and I've been out West. They seem to get about twice as much natural snow as the Collingwood resorts even before taking their world class snowmaking into account. It's never insane busy like most places on holidays or weekends and is very quiet on weekdays usually. Even with large school trips and races there it's still not as busy as most places. Very friendly atmosphere there I find. Nothing to do if you don't ski unlike some other resorts in Ontario and very basic cafeteria food as well. Hotels are about 20 mins away in Midland or Barrie with none at the hill. ... Full Review

I have a beginner child. No where does anyone tell you that there are two different chalets. One Chalet is for beginner but to get there from the other side you have to travel up hill long distance and own a treacherous hill which is very scary for a beginner. When we went to rent our skis I asked where are the beginner hills. She said you have to ski over. If she just told us to drive over and rent our skis there we would have saved a lot of time . Trying to get there was scary and took forever after I asked if a beginner could ski the trail over. It was so busy with snow boarders out of control everywhere a 200 pd man ploughed into my 10 year old and ended our day at first aid after 3 runs. the skis they rented us were so short my son could barley move over flat snow.Terrible experience and poor knowledge of staff and direction of staff . I also had to wait 35 minutes for a ticket with one ticket both open with 50 people in line!... Full Review
