We've been quite fortunate on our visits to this mountain. 80% of the time we have received fresh snow and had opportunities to make fresh tracks through the trees repeatedly for multiple days in a row. The skiable acres are nearly as much as Crystal...More

I have been skiing here for decades and it breaks my heart to see what the current ownership has been doing to the mountain. It is a quaint little hill that has mostly green and blue slopes with nothing challenging in the way of steeps....More

Fun place to ski. Family friendly, affordable, ski terrain well developed. Grooming could be better at times.

The terrain at this resort is amazing and is good for all levels. We found bits of untouched powder right on the main slope. The thing that lets it down is the lift system. The lifts are all very old and are 2 seat chairs...More

This family resort offers every thing from beginner slopes to tight tree skiing with some steeps (if you know where to look). If you love the woods, it doesn't seem to get much better than this. Almost never a lift line (except on food drive...More

Being a Texas and loving to ski, I love 49 Degrees North's terrain that is for all level skiers. Such a wonderful mountain!

Probably one of the lowest number of skier per acre ratios in the U.S. (2,300 acres) That means, no lines, private slopes, fast skiing, untouched glades and non burned out/happy employees to serve you. Reasonable costs all around, bargain season passes. A classic family/brown bag...More
