“Not bad at all”

Osceola Tug Hill Ski Center
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Spent spring break there (end of March 2014). Stayed there for 5 days. Lots of snow, mid-season conditions.

Pros:

The snow!

Good trails, professionally groomed. Hugh Quinn, who maintains the XC zone, does know the stuff.

Nice facilities. A room where you can rest and eat your lunch, free WiFi. Changing room, waxing cabin. Cannot ask for more really.

The "Red Camp", a small old house across the road is a good place to stay. Living room, bedroom upstairs, kitchen and inexpensive, especially mid-week or if you come in a bunch.

The shop is very good too. Over a few years, bought shoes, poles, bindings there. Excellent selection of equipment for sale, and not overpriced, which happens on ski zones.

Cons:

It's really a remote place

Poor cellphone reception. Neither of our phones (Verizon, T-mobile) worked in the area.

Hugh maintains the business alone. So after an overnight snowfall he has to plow the lot and groom the trails. Often he doesn't have enough time, and it takes couple of days for the trails to get into an optimal shape

My GPS showed shorter trail length than claimed

Overall, they deserve 5 stars

The skiing/snow/grooming are all excellent.
Very nice warming hut to hang out in.
I was somewhat disappointed to learn that tuning skis is not really an area of the business that they are interested in.

When the snow is gone in your neck of the woods head up to the Osceola Tug Hill Ski Center. It is truly a winter wonderland. A very homey place with a friendly proprietor. Trails are fun, but not too challenging, with moderate hills (for the most part). A bit out of the way, but worth the trip.

This place has snow when no one else does. The trails are great and the center is very homey with a stove and home made cookies and other snacks for sale. Their ski shop is extensive with some good deals. We enjoy going there very much.

Just a great place to ski and you’ll not find a better deal on ski equipment anywhere. The trails are always well groomed and the tug hill area is the place to go for snow.
