So close and fine skiing

Lousiest snowboard experience in New England by far. Website advertises late season rate, $25 for an adult day ticket. However, when we arrived at the mountain it turned out to be $35 per ticket. Had we known that, we would have gone to a different resort. The staff selling the tickets was borderline rude and clearly did not want to... More

Whaleback, like other little ski areas, hasn't had an easy time over the last few years. But it's a fun, inexpensive and accessible little place. It has some steeps to challenge and some easier terrain for learners. Little stretch of woods is fun in the deep snow!

This is a local treasure. We live here and ski here. Tourists will probably not like it if they're expecting Killington. It's not Killington. It does not try to be. These are hard working people (volunteers usually) trying to keep their local mountain alive. They have great youth programs, Thursday night race league, and all kinds of fun weekend events....

I am certainly a bit bias about the Whale having skied here for years and even worked here. But I can tell you that this is a great little mountain with affordable skiing and riding. A perfect place for a child or adult to learn how to ski or ride. Excellent, experienced, caring instructors with lessons that don't cost an... More

This property was just auctioned off. Not in business as of now. August 6, 2013 Hopefully, they will find someone that can get it up and running again.

According to local news reports, they are bankrupt as of April, 2013. I would check before visiting.

We were a little leary when we first arrived, but was pleasantly surprised once we got off the lift. It is larger than it appears. Very helpful and friendly staff. Considering the lack of snow this year, this mountain has done a great job at maintaining the trails that still have snow. Well worth the stop.

I had a discount coupon for $20, turns out I could have skied for $15 on Sunday from 9 a.m. - Noon. It was Super Bowl Sunday and the place was pretty deserted. Maybe 3 dozen cars in the parking lot and this is locals area not a destination resort. Good thing I decided on Sunday as they are closed... More
