"A small mountain with a large heart."

-Ellen Holleran

Tussey Mountain was originally operated as a public ski area under the name of Skimont during the 1960's. After sitting idle for a few years, the mountain was re-opened as a private club in the mid 1970's under the name Bald Knob Ski Club. In 1981-82 the mountain was reorganized and opened again publicly as Tussey Mountain Ski Area, a name now synonymous with quality skiing to area residents. Since then the mountain has grown both in size and sophistication of operation.

Today, Tussey Mountain has skiing on 50 acres with 3 ski and snowboard lifts and 1 snowtube lift. Our snowmaking system covers 90% of our skiable terrain, as does our slope lighting. Instruction is offered through our PSIA member Snowsports School, first-aid services through our NSP member Ski Parol, a complete Rental Shop, on-site Ski Shop, as well as well-organized junior racing programs.

We are typically open for skiing, boarding, and tubing in December, running through middle (to late ) March.

We are closed and in pre-season hours! Call us (814.466.6266) for up to the minute reports, hours, conditions and specials.
