Mystic Mountain is a fun ski area designed for families. With a 300-foot vertical drop, Mystic Mountain provides the excitement of skiing without the intimidation that steep mountain destinations present to first-timers. The Beginner's Area sits just outside the Sundial Lodge and is popular for young beginners still trying to get used to their skis and snowboards. Mystic's First Step bowl is large and perfectly designed for first-time skiers and snowboarders that still need to develop skills.
Geronimo is the easiest way to the bottom of Mystic Mountain. The mountain's longest slope at one-half mile, Geronimo is another excellent slope for learning how to ski or snowboard. Nose Dive, a short, steep intermediate trail, exits onto Geronimo's slope. Grizzly Run is Mystic Mountain's second intermediate slope and provides more thrill than Geronimo, in addition to an incredible view of the surrounding Laurel Highlands.
Mystic Mountain's other slopes were designed to challenge experts. You'll know you're halfway down Cliffhanger when your stomach meets your throat. Showboat is an expert trail where skiers can showcase their talents in front of a large group of onlookers. Located next to Showboat is Glade Run, an aggressive trail with tree skiing and riding. Only the most daring skiers will battle this trail while showing off their skills.
Mystic Mountain has a 300 foot vertical drop, three lifts and is 100% illuminated, making night snowsports great fun. The mountain is serviced by three lifts, one quad chair lift, a beginner tow and a surface lift in the snow tubing park. Mystic Mountain also has rental equipment available, leaving no excuses for battling the mountain! The "Yeti's Lair" Terrain Park, Snow Tubing, Dog Sledding, Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing are also available.
