Tucked between Honeoye and Canandaigua Lakes, Bristol Mountain Ski Resort sports the highest vertical between the Catskills and the Rockies, at 1200′. There are 138 acres of total skiable terrain. Most all lit for night skiing, and most with snow making.
Bristol Mountain is open 7 days a week 9am-10pm, (night skiing mid December to mid-March). The mountain features 2 terrain parks and an Olympic-size halfpipe for snowboarders. And 2 large Nordic loops for traditional or skate skiing. It has 6 lifts, 2 are high-speed quad chairs.
On a sunny Saturday afternoon I drove down the east side of Honeoye Lake, looking for Wesley Hill Rd. I had decided that this was the easiest route (by looking at the map) to get to the Wesley Hill Nature Preserve. Wesley Hill Road was almost as much of an adventure as the beautiful 300+ acres I hiked at the top. The road is not paved and very steep. I am assuming that the bottom of it is closed in the winter as my not 4-wheeled drive car spun and wound it’s way up to the top of what seemed much larger than a “hill.”
