Woodbury Ski Area is located in Woodbury, Connecticut. This small ski area is in New England. The skiing and snow tubing operations are serviced by a chairlift and multiple surface lifts. Local residents refer to it as "Rod's" after its owner, Olympic skier Rod Taylor. True locals refer to it as "Woodbury Rock & Gravel" after its previous name "Woodbury Ski and Racket" because snow coverage is often inadequate and the terrain can be damaging to skis and boards; recommended: use beaters or rentals.
Taylor opened the resort in 1972. Taylor took pride in Woodbury being the first ski area in Connecticut to open each season.

Woodbury Ski Area Reviews
Had a lot of fun, was a nice ski trip - great place to go from NYC, not too far. Small, perfect for teaching children. more »
Woodbury Ski Area is a great place for first time skiers. They have a great rate for first timers that includes lift, rental and lesson for $75. The group lesson were great. We got a lot of individual attention because of the small group. There was no line at the lift all day on a Saturday.
Under new management since most of these reviews were written. Complete overhaul over the past couple seasons. If you are close it's worth it. Ticket cost is appropriate, night skiing is now available. Compared to the two RIDGE hills in CT it is the steepest so adults can enjoy themselves when kids learn to ski. They have a six week learn to ski program that is unmatched in the area, both in price and instruction. Disregard any review 20 months or older. Close, cheap, friendly, SAFE. Fair food prices.
