If you're used to midwest skiing, you'll probably like it. If you're expecting Vermont or the west, you'll be disappointed. It's roughly 1200' with a nice variety of trails, nothing outrageously steep. High speed quad, GREAT snowmaking (with improvements this year) and good grooming. No "official" glades. Weekdays are not crowded (until the schools arrive about 4:00) and weekends can be OK or pretty bad. If the whole hill is open, the worst crowds will be in line for the quad-the mountain can absorb lots of people. This is my "home " mountain and we manage to amuse ourselves there for about 60 days a year. If you're in the area or passing through, it's certainly worth a visit. It is the tallest area between the Catskills and the Rockies.
Even though I live in New England now, I grew up skiing in Western New York and still go back now and then for Masters Races.
My opionion of Bristol has gone down in recent years because of dealing with a rude and un-professional race department.
As for the hill itself:
positives- HSQ, good vert. drop for region, "Comet" race trail best in region, good novice trails off summit.
negatives- only a handfull of top to bottom trails, and they lack character, snow conditions sub-par on nights and weekends, weekends can be very crowded with limited terrain options.
If in the area, also consider checking out another hill, Swain.
It's about 600' vert and their terrain isn't horribly exciting either, but they usually have excellent snow conditions. Probably a better choice if skiing on a busy weekend.
