We have children that get altitude sickness in Colorado so we thought we would try Terry Peak since it is only 7000 feet high. Temperatures ranged from 20 degrees to 60 while we were there. Great hill for families that are learning to ski. All of the lifts go to the top so there is little chance of getting lost.... More

I learned to ski at this area many years ago. All the lifts but one have been upgraded over the years to high-speed detachable quads. This makes for more skiing, less waiting and riding lifts. The terrain is suitable for beginner through advanced intermediate ski levels. There were no lines at the lifts and the snow and weather were good.... More

I grew up learning to ski in the black hills and Terry Peak is a great place to do just that. I have two children 13 and 11 who have just started skiing and snow boarding over the past 4 years. Terry Peak is not the biggest place on earth so turning you kids loose on the mountain is not... More

Used to come here every year in my teen years...moved on to going to Colorado and now have my own teens to bring here! The weather was CRAZY warm, but the skiing was still surprisingly decent. It got a little icy toward the end of the day as runs started to be covered in shade. Can't wait to make this... More

Great runs, fast lifts that hardly ever had to stop, no crowds, good food at the lodges that was reasonably priced, adult 2 day lift ticket appox $100, wide open runs, convenient parking and close to the action in Deadwood. I recommend Edge Sports for rentals which is about 2 mi before you get to the ski area.

This place is awesome. Has many different slopes for all levels of experience. I was learning and could have just paid for the beginner level ski lift access instead of all area access to save a little money, this place is spendy. The lodge was reasonably priced and food was ready, instead of ordering and waiting. I didn't like how... More

This is an excellent value. I grew up near Tahoe and the ticket prices there are outrageous. Terry Peak is quite reasonable and it has diverse terrain to suit all levels of ability.

Black Hills best kept secret is that it is a great winter destination on the scale of Jackson Hole. Great skiing in Lead S.D. about 5 miles from Deadwood. Over 100 miles of snow mobile trails. Great historical area where Wild Bill Hickcock was shot. Casinos in Deadwood are mostly in historical buildings. Mt. Rushmore is open year around and... More

Great time at Terry Peak for a New Years Ski Weekend. Our young grandchildren took ski lessons and loved there experience skiing. We were impressed with the ski area and very reasonable prices of lessons, ski rentals and lift tickets. Great Value compared to Colorado pricing. We enjoyed the lodge at the base, spending time watching the skiers from the... More
