This is quite a nice place. Family friendly and it's good. It was late in the season and a few trails weren't open, but still good nonetheless. It's worth the trip. Food up in bar area is not good. Bring your own to ski resorts.

Good: Close to NYC, good trails and restaurants. Bad: Nobody explains how to buy tickets and rent skis, the trails closed before stablished time and didn’t notice anybody, when leaving the skiis just one person received it with rudeness.

This was my first time at this ski mountain. I was somewhat impressed with the size of the mountain for only being an hour away from Westchester County, NY. They have 3 mountains. One mountain (South Side) is dedicated to terrain parks. That is pretty...More

No you don’t, but they don’t have a separate group class for that age, so they may be in a class with other adults. You do not take the lift to the lesson.
