Alpine skiing with a twist. Take a warm ride to the top on our heated buses, then choose from dozens of groomed runs over a mile long. Slopes from novice to advanced, and a new beginner tow right at the base lodge for those who have never tried it and aren't ready for a big mountain just yet.

Nobody is wild about removing skis...but for a bus or a gondola or tram it can be worth it to ride up out of the weather. We are definitely used to it here. A heated ride up also keeps the lodge from getting crowded...you don't...More

I had a blast here by acting in natural snow from Alaska! They have several slopes by 3 different levels: beginner, more difficult, difficult. Safe and well-arranged slopes welcome both nature lovers and thrill seekers. All of the scenes from the slopes are breathtaking.

Plenty of room on the runs, well groomed, and the buses were efficient, so no long waits. O'Reilly in the rental shop was very helpful.

Thank you for the kind review. The vertical drop is comparable to many major lifts at bigger resorts, and the variety of runs within that drop is rarely matched anywhere.

Noose mountain is a beautiful ski resort, which anyone will highly enjoy, but the downside to this place is the employees. The majority of them are rude, will keep you waiting for a significant amount of time, and overall a very unpleasant experience. But, if...More

Moose is definitely a good time for novices and experienced riders alike. While it's not a true mountain like some resorts, it doesn't skimp on elevation. Heated buses take you back to the top after your runs and there's snacks inside. It doesn't have a...More
