“Great walk”

“First time skiing - Absolutely loved it!”
Alpine skiing with a twist. Take a warm ride to the top on our heated buses, then choose from dozens of groomed runs over a mile long. Slopes from novice to advanced, and a new beginner tow right at the base lodge for those who have never tried it...more

A great afternoon walk: charge up here and head straight to the top, good views and good for the gluts.

We enjoyed our visit but no matter how you look at it having to remove skis and sit on an over heated crowded bus to return to the top of the mountain was not a pleasant part of the experience. You can not beat the...More

Nobody is wild about removing skis...but for a bus or a gondola or tram it can be worth it to ride up out of the weather. We are definitely used to it here. A heated ride up also keeps the lodge from getting crowded...you don't...More

Moose is a ski/snowboarding resort that is rustic but fun. The hills and run are moderate and the snow good. The lodge has some snacks and hot drinks available. There is also a rental. The unique thing about Moose Mountain is that there are no...More

I had a blast here by acting in natural snow from Alaska! They have several slopes by 3 different levels: beginner, more difficult, difficult. Safe and well-arranged slopes welcome both nature lovers and thrill seekers. All of the scenes from the slopes are breathtaking.

Plenty of room on the runs, well groomed, and the buses were efficient, so no long waits. O'Reilly in the rental shop was very helpful.

Thank you for the kind review. The vertical drop is comparable to many major lifts at bigger resorts, and the variety of runs within that drop is rarely matched anywhere.

Noose mountain is a beautiful ski resort, which anyone will highly enjoy, but the downside to this place is the employees. The majority of them are rude, will keep you waiting for a significant amount of time, and overall a very unpleasant experience. But, if...More

Moose is definitely a good time for novices and experienced riders alike. While it's not a true mountain like some resorts, it doesn't skimp on elevation. Heated buses take you back to the top after your runs and there's snacks inside. It doesn't have a...More

I started skiing late in life and this is a wonderful place to spend a winter afternoon. There are several different terrains from easy to challenging. Riding the bus gives you a chance to warm up and visit with friends. All in all, it's a...More
