About Bristol Mountain

Bristol Mountain Ski Resort, also known as Bristol Mountain Winter Resort, is a ski resort located in South Bristol, New York in the Finger Lakes region. It is located 30 miles (48 km) from the center of Rochester, New York, the nearest major city to the resort, and about 10 miles (16 km) from Canandaigua on State Route 64. Currently, Bristol Mountain Resort features many trails ranging from easiest (green circle) to difficult (double black diamonds). Bristol Mountain has a vertical rise of 1,200 feet, claiming to have the highest vertical of any ski resort between the Rocky Mountains and the Adirondacks. Bristol also offers two terrain parks and cross country skiing at the resort’s summit. Also at the top is a ski shop and rental facility. Bristol Mountain Resort also operates in conjunction with Roseland Waterpark, open during the summer season in Canandaigua. As of 2010, they have two high speed detachable chairlifts. The Comet Express lift was installed for the 1999/2000 season and the Galaxy Express for the 2009/2010 season. Both make a full pass in about four minutes. In the autumn they offer Fall Sky Rides using the Comet Express High Speed Quad chairlift slowed down to take 15–20 minutes. Once at the top the riders may stay on and ride or hike down the trails.
