Skiing at Crabbe the day before, we were hopeful for a better experience, and we were not disappointed. We were travelling with a ski team, and when we arrived there was a sign in the entry way welcoming our ski team and fellow visitors from out of province. - nice touch.

The Lodge is spectacular, the huge windows make the space bright and the place was spotless. The staff were all friendly.

This is a new facility, great little hill, expensive for you get. The staff that work here are rude and not willing to help you at all! I will never go back, from the time I bought my lift ticket, to the ski patrol, to the lift operators, the canteen, all of the employee's made me feel like I was bothering them if you spoke to them.

Poley is similar to Wentworth in NS. Not the biggest mountain, but it gets the job done. Pretty good for the Maritimes. :)

Poley has long been a favourite ski hill. It's not huge, but the trails are well-groomed, the crowds are never that bad and the variety of runs is great.

Since the lodge burned down just before they opened for this season I didn't quite know what to expect but they have trailers set up for changing, tickets, food, bathrooms, lounge and everything. They really have done a great job recovering!

The March break skiing was perfect! lots of snow, small crowds; this was my best skiing experience of the season.

Lodge burned to the ground in December 2014, two weeks before opening. Cleaned out everything and put up over a dozen trailers. They did an exceptional job, crowds still coming out, great services despite everything. Has 30 trails and night skiing.
