Overview
More
Bristol Mountain is the premier resort located in the Western Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. Our 1200' vertical rise allows Bristol Mountain to reign as the highest vertical between the Adirondack/Laurentian Mountains of the east and the Rocky Mountains of the west. There are 138 acres of total skiable terrain. Views from the summit and the 34 slopes and trails are breathtaking and provide a variety of inclines for every skier and snowboarder from beginner to expert with 32% of the slopes being novice, 50% intermediate, and 18% advanced level terrain. During our night operating season, 96% of our trails have lighting. To assure our skiers and snowboarders of the best possible snow conditions, Bristol Mountain is proud of its state-of-the-art snowmaking system which covers 97% of the terrain.

Great conditions and very small lines even on the weekend. Worth the drive to get a better ski experience than heading to Collingwood. More expensive though, especially with the exchange.More

The best runs are early in the day on the right (north) end of the mountain. The left (south) side of the mountain has some excellent and fun learning runs.

The resort may be called bristol mountain but it would be more appropriately named bristol hill as the summit is only 660m above sea level. This means that none of the pistes are very long and you spend more times going up than skiing down....More

I believe lift ticket/rental can be purchased prior. We never do due to possible poor weather/snow conditions. The prices are very reasonable and the staff will get you fitted with your gear in minutes. Enjoy!
