Thunder Ridge wouldn't be my first choice in ski resorts. It's small - you can pretty much ski every inch of it in once session - and it's no-frills. But, it often is my first choice because the location can't be beat. We live in...More

3 instructor for 7 kids was great. Conveyor belt let kids easily move back to the gentle slope during training. My 6 yr old was so eager to go on the slopes after the morning lesson and can't wait to go back next weekend.

This place was Mobbed! It's was very pricey for barely any experience. Ridiculous incline for beginners. Might as well find a golf course with snow. So crowded you can't do a thing. Don't waste ur money ski with a wii

It's small and no frills. Perfect for the beginner skier or young child. We enrolled our young daughter in a private 1:1 lesson and we were pleased with how well her instructor engaged with her. We would and will return.
