Only one thing is guaranteed in NE Ohio; winter. Well, Boston Mills/Brandywine Ski Resorts capitalize on the season’s change and embrace winter. The resorts look forward to seeing the beautiful white snow blanket the slopes creating an adrenaline rushing experience that will get you hooked.
The duo of ski resorts offers a unique winter experience and creates memories that will last a lifetime. Featuring some of the most skier beginner conducive areas in the country, Boston Mills/Brandywine is proud to be one of the largest facilitators to introducing new skiers and snowboarders to their lifelong passion for winter sports.
Coupling this incredible terrain are hundreds of certified ski instructors that are looking forward to teaching you the proper mechanics so you can enjoy your time on the snow.
If you already possess an understanding of skiing then you will be thrilled to hear that the ski resorts offer a diverse portfolio of trails between the properties, ranging from beginner to expert. Are you looking for a long, mild cruise down the slopes? Outer limits, at Brandywine, would be perfect for you.
In the mood for some steep pitch? Tiger, at Boston Mills, features the largest downhill pitch in Ohio. Want to switch it up? Both properties feature a terrain park with a wide variety of options to enjoy, including freestyle terrain with jumps, rails, boxes, and more.
Did we mention that a single lift tickets gets your access to BOTH properties? Yes, you read that correctly! A single day-pass grants you access to both Boston Mills and Brandywine Ski Resorts in the same day. The best part is they are just five minutes apart. Shred Boston Mills all morning long and then head over to Brandywine for an afternoon skiing session to get the best of both worlds. Yes, we are open until 1 am on weekends at Brandywine. Seriously.
If you’ve been on the lookout for the perfect family outing, Polar Blast Snow Tubing at Brandywine is the place to be. The tubing park accommodates tens of thousands of guests annually and is the perfect family getaway.
The best part about tubing, other than the super convenient conveyor belt that takes you up the top of the tubing hill, is that no prior experience is necessary. We see children as young as three and grandparents in their 80’s enjoying the snow tubing park.
Best of all, all you need is yourself. Snow tubes are provided on site and we have friendly staff members available to assist you in your tubing journey.
Looking to go FAST on the tubing hill? Brandywine features Super Lanes, which as the name suggests, are faster and taller versions of the regular tubing lane. Feel free to link up with your family or friends for an added speed boost. Don’t forget that Polar Blast Snow Tubing is the perfect party location featuring an Igloo Party Hut that is a great get-together space for any occasion.
Nothing is more refreshing, after a long day on the slopes, than sitting down with a hot chocolate in front of a stone fireplace. When you are ready for a break from the action, visit our eateries at any location where you will find a variety of options that will satisfy your cravings. Freshly made pizza, four varieties of salad, crispy French fries, and vegetarian options are all available at both Boston Mills and Brandywine.
