Great conditions and very small lines even on the weekend. Worth the drive to get a better ski experience than heading to Collingwood. More expensive though, especially with the exchange.More

Gave up on skiing after moving away from the Adirondacks. Thought Bristol would be a bump on a map so I never explored it despite the fact that it is just 35 minutes from where I moved to. What a pleasant surprise! Can't believe I've...More

The resort may be called bristol mountain but it would be more appropriately named bristol hill as the summit is only 660m above sea level. This means that none of the pistes are very long and you spend more times going up than skiing down....More

I believe lift ticket/rental can be purchased prior. We never do due to possible poor weather/snow conditions. The prices are very reasonable and the staff will get you fitted with your gear in minutes. Enjoy!
