Bristol Mountain—Ski & Snowboard Resort

A group of zip liners pose for a photo on a bridge at Bristol Mountain Aerial AdventuresBristol Mountain is the premier Finger Lakes destination for skiing, snowboarding, zip lining, and aerial adventures, delivering exhilaration every season of the year. In fact, we call it the Adventure Capital of New York's Finger Lakes.

Let's start with winter. Bristol Mountain takes you to new heights of excitement, beauty, and challenge, thanks to its 1,200 foot (about 365 meters) vertical rise, the highest between the Rocky Mountains and the Adirondacks. Prefer cross-country skiing? Bristol Mountain has that too.

At the summit of Bristol Mountain, thrill seekers can get their fill two ways: Bristol Mountain Aerial Adventures takes you into the trees with rope ladders, zip lines, and other elements, while Bristol Mountain Canopy Tour gives you the thrill of suspended zip line speed and vistas.

It's year-round outdoor fun for the whole family.

A note to our Canadian friends: Bristol Mountain is only about a four-hour drive from Toronto.
