“It is a good hill that is close to my house. Man-made snow is pretty much all it is but they do have a great snowmaking system and also great lights that allow you to ski until 9:30 pm. The parking lot is a little crazy but other than that it is a pretty good hill. It is not a mountain it is a hill.
A good of amount of terrain to ski on. Mostly blue and black runs. Runs are wide and grooming is excellent. 6 person lifts are fast.
The hill is overcrowded on weekends - no point of going during the day on Saturday/Sunday unless you like waiting in line, however, this is an issue with all hills in Ontario. It is better to go night-skiing due to...” --ihor
“Searchmont is located on an escarpment. That's a technical geological term, but what it means is that the terrain at Searchmont is more mountain-like than other resorts in the midwest. For instance, everything in the lower peninsula of Michigan is either a moraine or a man-made hill. Neither of these formations look or feel very "mountainish". When you drive to Searchmont, once you leave...” --Walt
“They installed new lighting this year and have the best and most lighting around (75% of the whole hill)
The terrain parks are awesome and well maintained, a groms park, intermediate park and an expert park (60 foot jumps, 18 foot pipe, air bag, rails and boxes galore)
Food is good and not way expensive.
Lots of good terrain for progressing anyone from green to intermediate blue.
A nice ski hill in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada. Good for all levels of ski. There is a steep hill with sometimes moguls. It has a good variety of terrain for up the advance level. 3 chair lifts
1 is on the Snoopy Hill
Chalet offers a variety of cafeteria style food and there is a bar area up stairs.
Good area to ski if your near the Thunder Bay area” --world-traveller123
“The area provides a decent range of runs for all but those looking for real challenges. Good snowmaking usually means a season starting in mid-December and going until the end of March. The area is about an hour drive from Ottawa, and there are accommodations available at the hill as well as in the surrounding area. Crowds are not a problem weekdays, but it does get a bit busy on weekends, ...” --Ken Bennett
“Talisman wasn't a bad place to ski. 650' vertical but not as challenging as the north part of Blue Mountain. Went bankrupt in 2010. Portions of the resort have been sold off to back over $2 million in back taxes to the township.” --gasman
