Update: October 16, 2020

Winter is fast approaching and we’re looking forward to seeing you on the snow soon. Last year Bristol Mountain was the first ski area in New York to open on Thursday, November 14th, which is less than a month away!

This summer and fall we have been working hard in preparation for the upcoming season. Our mountain operations crew is testing our snowmaking system and doing their final checklist before we are prepared to open. The next phase of the Rocket Lodge Expansion is near completion and is on target to be completed prior to the start of the 2020-21 season.

Many of you have wondered what you can expect this winter when you visit the mountain. We like to joke that the snow will be white and the lifts will be running, but we know there are many more details than that. We understand that being at the mountain is a total experience, not limited to the physical act of skiing or riding and that part of the thrill is dreaming about the first day snow falls and knowing that you have a place to go to enjoy it. This season our operation will be different to accommodate for social distancing and current health guidelines.

For the 2020-21 season our plan is to offer as many of our mountain services as possible with alterations as needed. Preparations are being made right now for changes in how every department at the mountain operates. With each department we are looking closely at our usage trends. We are using that data to help us understand how we can allow guests to enjoy the mountain while ensuring guests and staff feel comfortable and appropriate social distancing is taking place.

This summer and fall we have welcomed many guests to the mountain for our Fall Sky Rides and to visit Bristol Mountain Aerial Adventures. Every time we receive a comment from a guest that Bristol brought people together safely for a wonderful experience it warms our hearts and encourages us for an incredible winter season.

We are still awaiting guidelines from New York State and when we receive those we can begin to set policies that will guide our operations as we get set to open. Our mission is to provide a place where families and friends feel comfortable coming to enjoy and embrace the great outdoors.

Soar through the trees and have an adventure at Bristol Mountain Aerial Adventures.
