“Great Place to Ski”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

They offer many different terrains along with a sledding hill. The snow is always good. They do offer a ski-check for when you go inside and not have to worry about someone taking your equipment, but they charge you for the service on a per-use basis...I wish this could be free like it was a few years ago.

They offer a full bar with a walk-out patio.

“Nice place but could be more handicap friendly.”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

I was so surprised because Snow Trails offers handicap snowboarding (not sure of skiing). However, when we visited with our grandson, the handicap parking spaces were all blocked by some sort of tables. There was no access to the upper main viewing level for handicapped (although one employee offered to carry my 250 pound husband in a wheelchair up the steps! The cafeteria which does have viewing windows was the only place we could go. Otherwise very nice place.

“Great local get-a-way...”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Snow Trails is located very close to I-71 and plenty of restaurants (mostly fast food). There are even a few hotels right off the freeway exit.

The staff at Snow Trails was very friendly and helpful. My son took part in one of their lesson packages. His instructor was able to teach him some things he had not learned in previous lessons at another, similar resort. By the end of the day, my son was snowboarding down all of the trails... a first for him. From the employees in the rental area, to the instructor, to the bartenders, etc. - all of the staff seemed eager to help out.

There aren't a million trails but the number of trails and lifts will keep you busy for a while. We were there on a Saturday and the crowd was very manageable. If you are looking for a one day trip somewhere for skiing or snowboarding, you should definitely give Snow Trails a visit.

My only "complaint" would be that by 7:30pm (on Saturday) they started requiring a $5 cover charge just to walk into the main restaurant/bar area. If you don't want to see the band that was playing because you're outside but still wanted to go inside to grab a drink, you needed the $5 wristband. (Granted, if you had a pass for the hills, you did not need to pay $5 for the wristband.)

“Skiing in Ohio”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Ohio's first and finest ski resort. It is Ohio so only 300 feet of vertical but a great place to enjoy winter. The tubing park is also lots of fun and requires no skill to enjoy.
