Price is right and nice small mountain for a young family with new skiers! Only reason t is a 4 star is we found the staff in the ticket booth and when calling the mountain to be rather unfriendly (seemed to be inconvenienced by our call/questions) . However the staff working the rental shop were amazing!

Came here for the first time (on a Groupon) with my boyfriend and his two teenage kids. The resort is small but everything is convenient. Parking is right in front, lift tickets are in one building (together with the tables and food concessions) and equipment rental is in another building just a few feet away. Rental for skis, boots and... More

We started going to Otis in 2014. After living in New England for 10 years, I finally decided to put a positive spin on the long cold winter and get back into skiing. My boyfriend and I got Butternut season passes and on weekends we would take the kids to Otis. The biggest regret I have is to not get... More

My two kids (5 yrs and 7yrs) learned how to ski at this place, all the instructors really teach them how to ski. After 3 lessons, they were going down the hill without any problem. They had a better time compared to other two times we took them on more expensive resort. i was worried that this place was old... More

We ski in the area with my 6 year old and this place seemed very nice... very small but cozy. Everyone was very nice, you park RIGHT in front, and the lodge was very cozy. My only complaint was one the one lift, when you get to the top you literally have one second to get off the lift. My... More

A ski instructor friend suggested Otis Ridge as a great place to take our church youth group for a ski outing. It was, she said, inexpensive (and, relative to most ski areas, it was); not overwhelming (it wasn't); and suitable for the kids (and adults) who had never skiied before (it was). It was easy to find everything, and just... More

I grew up at Otis Ridge Junior Ski Camp, where my parents were instructors and counselors. I spent every winter weekend and holiday there from 1957-1972. I finally was able to return after 40 years last weekend to find the area has not changed much at all! It is still a small, family oriented area with lots of heart and... More

Step back 50 years. The way skiing used to be. The lift is small and clangy, but always gets you to the top. Even the "long lines" are short. The runs are short yet sweet. A couple of winding trails down the center are fun for a few thrills. The lodge is small, cozy, with a wood stove in the... More
