Not a very large or challenging ski area, Brandywine is nevertheless conveniently located to both Cleveland and Akron and is just about right for a visit or two to warm-up prior to trips to more challenging ski areas further away or ahead of ski trips to the western mountains. We found the staff to helpful and friendly, frequently greeting us... More

I do not know how to ski and wanted to go on a ski trip in Toronto for my birthday, some friends bagged out and this is where my husband brought me. It was so much fun. I really like the fact that there was a bar inside and a place to keep warm. Must go back again!

Tubing at polar blast was a great time. There are about three different heights/lengths of hills to choose to slide down from. It would be nice to have some more variation in the hills though (after going down a few times it's less exciting, but I understand that this is more geared towards smaller kids...). I thought that the price... More

They charge more for season passes than some places in the Rockies. They use the excuse that there was no snow to open as late as possible last year, but this year with cold temps and lots of snow, we finally have an opening date 12/16....and that is just for the after school mob..opening at 330 pm to 10 pm......

Boston Mills and Brandywine are great for all ages. From beginner slopes and tubing, it's great for a fun family or group outing.

Its actually an artificial snow park but it is quite accesible, and it has great slopes, ledges, grinds, ramps etc. I'd recommend it to anyone who is starting to learn snowboarding or skiing and also advanced users who want to practice jumps and some tricks.

Boston Mills is a great place to spend the day with friends or family! Every time I go, I see kids learning to ski or board (which is awesome!) The cost is good for the day pass, and they always have awesome promotions!

We come every Friday with our home school ski club and it suffices for skiing locally. I am disappointed they kicked homeschooling parents out of the ski club program. I opted not to buy a pick-a-day pass due to the increased cost and the fact I only ski a couple of hours on Friday's.

It's skiing in Ohio. This review is based on customer service or the total lack of customer service. We skied for 5 hours and only 1 staff member ever greeted us. The ski lodge is rundown, trash is everywhere and only one word describes the rest rooms ... Disgusting. Guest services is a joke and the kid working the locker... More
