We spent the day at Poley, yesterday. It was the first visit since before the lodge burned down. The new facilities are large and beautiful and the huge fireplace throws heat from a real wood fire. If you are not a skier, but want to tag along, the lodge offers plenty of seating to watch the hill and work or... More

Conditions okay after receiving 40 cm of snow last night. Need a little more grooming. 30 of 32 trails open. They are working on getting the Terrain Park open. The lodge is beautiful with fireplaces and the Slope Side Bar and Grill has live music on the weekend. Night time skiing is great with lots of lighted trails.

We're lucky to have this great little hill so close to Moncton. Excellent lodge, lifts, and a hill that's more than sufficient for most local skiers. Went for the first time this year and it was more challenging than I was expecting.

This is a great little spot. A good variety of trails, easy to hard. Two chair lifts, plus two ways up the bunny hill. Well laid out. A little bit bigger and steeper than Martock (NS), and certainly more variety in the skiing. As usual, food in the lodge is way too expensive.

Our first time skiing this year; it was the second weekend they were open this season and the hill was in great shape. Almost all the trails were open; groomed with a good base. The staff in the chalet and on the hill were friendly and helpful. This is a great hill to practice our skills on that is convenient... More

This is a great little ski hill in the south east of New Brunswick. Over 25 trails and growing. Since the fire that ravaged the clubhouse a few years ago, this Phoenix has not just risen from the ashes, but has thrived. There is a restaurant, equipment rentals, ski school and so much more. The ski hill is great, but... More

Nice small ski hill that's great for families and intermediate level skiers in southeastern New Brunswick. Not a lot of vertical and the most challenging trail would be a single black diamond (at most). The centre has a fixed quad chair and a fixed triple chair. But, the people are very friendly and accommodating. The new lodge is a big... More

Skiing at Crabbe the day before, we were hopeful for a better experience, and we were not disappointed. We were travelling with a ski team, and when we arrived there was a sign in the entry way welcoming our ski team and fellow visitors from out of province. - nice touch. The Lodge is spectacular, the huge windows make the... More

Poley is similar to Wentworth in NS. Not the biggest mountain, but it gets the job done. Pretty good for the Maritimes. :)
