You may ask what makes us "New York's Coolest Little Ski Area"? The reason, we believe, is simple. You see, there is a magical place in the hills of southern Washington County where it's still about the people. Located only 30 minutes from most of the Capital Region, we are a place where everyone still knows your name, and you and your kids are treated like part of our family. Willard Mountain has become known as a place where everyone can learn to ski or snowboard in a relaxed family environment, or simply enjoy cruising down the trails on our varied terrain. Best of all, the services and activities at Willard surround the same base area.
Willard Mountain is a ski area where you can come for a few hours on a weeknight and get that big mountain feel with our advanced terrain, all in a price that's affordable.
Maybe it's snow tubing that your family enjoys? We have that too, in a park that limits ticket sales so you get more tubing and less time in line!
A day or evening on the slopes is not the extreme events you see on TV or the computer. It's a day of fun, laughter, and time together. Most importantly at a price that is affordable.
You see it's true that there are still magical places like Willard Mountain where the entire staff is there for the true love of what they do, from the employees helping you park your car or putting you on a lift, to 5 snowmakers who control every crystal of snow that comes out of the gun. Willard is a place where the owners and managers would love to sit down with you and have a cup of coffee and hear how we can serve you better. It is a fun, safe, family friendly place that for the cost of an away weekend of skiing can get you a Willard season pass for your family!
These are all the reasons why we believe we are "New York's Coolest Little Ski Area." We will exceed your expectations in every way because we will not allow it to be any other way.
We guarantee that!
