Thunder Ridge

  I've been skiing at thunder ridge since I was 5. So when I moved, it was a HUGE disapiontment to have such good skiing taken away. Says Jack.

I come out here from New York a few times every winter to get some good skiing. It's a pretty decent place. Says Carol.

The seasonal snowfall is something like average at this ski mountain. Thunder Ridge has the greatest altitude difference among ski mountains in a 25 mile radius. There's 100 acres of
    skiing land, and all of it makes for magnificent skiing. Thunder Ridge is a relaxed ski mountain with a rather cozy altitude difference when compared to other east coast ski mountains. The annual snowfall of 8 feet keeps the ski slopes
well blanketed through the ski season. Thunder Ridge has a much lower than average percentage of hard slopes and a much higher than average proportion of blue and green trails. You'll encounter scores of skiers from Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown here. The wintertime in New York is truly a great time of year for snowboarding or skiing. Thunder Ridge has an okay selection of trails and a somewhat humble quantity of ski lifts. A 500 foot drop is unsurprisingly not that much,  
but all the other great attributes of Thunder Ridge make up for it. Thunder Ridge is a family friendly ski hill with lots of easy slopes. On this hill you'll come upon 30 different slopes; there are plenty slopes for every skill. There are 4 good ski lifts here, and they are enjoyable to get a ride with. The best piece of info on this resort is naturally the trailmap of Thunder Ridge on this page. The snowboarding and the skiing in New York is a lot of fun all winter long. Some exercise and a chance to spend some time in the fresh air will have you coming back. There arenít any accommodations nearby, but if you're ready to voyage a small distance then no problem, but do reserve a room ahead of going because it is a very popular destination.
