Pros: Lots of Snow and No Crowds
Cons: Slow Lifts
Snow Ridge sure lives up to it's name, they get the most snow of all the ski areas in Central New York. If you are looking for great snow, no crowds, parking right next to the lodge and some challenging terrain (especially if you know where to look) then this is the perfect place for your next day trip. There are 2 main lifts and 1 T-Bar you will use to get to the best terrain. There are only a few trails off the T-Bar but they are challenging and usually left natural which keeps the beginners away from them. They also have an affordable ski school that does a great job with adult beginners.
There are some cons like ,if you are looking for fancy hotels and restaurants Snow Ridge is not your choice in New York. The lifts are also older and slow, but that's not a big deal when there is only 500 vertical feet to cover. The only time I've ever had to wait in a lift line was when there was a regional high school race going on, but they did offer discounted lift tickets that day.
