Pros: Good lifts, no lines, good little lodges, near Deadwood

Cons: nothing steep, beer too expensive, near Deadwood

Terry Peak is a fun little area.  Very reminiscent of the Midwestern areas I skied as a kid.  The area is about 7 miles from Deadwood S. Dakota in the Black Hills; so lots of economical lodging, and places that would happily take your money gambling.  It is only about 15 miles off of I-90, so very easy yo get to.

 

Terry is a really friendly little area.  4 chairs (a Quad and 3 doubles), and a magic carpet for the beginners area.  About 1100 vertical, and tops out at around 7,000', pretty impressive for the Dakotas. 2 Lodges, one at the bottom and one in the middle, you can drive to either.  The beginners area is at the lodge in the middle which made for an interesting arrangement.  

 

They claim 150" of snow annually.  The day I hit it there was about 5" fresh on a packed base.  There is nothing very steep there, but it was the best (and only) skiing I have ever had in South Dakota.  There is a terrain park, 1/2 pipe, and even a little bumped up area to keep your attention.  

 

There is a decent little demo fleet at a shop in Lead (at the bottom of the hill) called "The Edge".  Since I am stuck working on the wrong side of Wyoming all my gear is back home, these guys had some decent skis to choose from.  

 

Is a fun place to scratch the skiing itch, if you are in this part of the country.
