Where is it at?
Yawgoo Valley Ski and Water Park
160 Yawgoo Valley Rd
Where are we going today?
Why visit just a ski slope, when you can visit a place that is a ski area AND a water park! Yawgoo Valley is a great way to get the kids out from in front of the television and get active!
Let's start with the skiing!
Did you know that Yawgoo Valley is the ONLY ski area in the entire state of Rhode Island? Pretty cool! You can ski and snowboard until your heart's content on one of their 12 trails, and it's a great place for younger kids to be introduced to snow sports.
There is 36 acres of skiable terrain at Yawgoo Valley, with three different levels of terrain difficult, so you can choose what is best for you. The fun thing about multiple levels, is that kids can start on the easiest, and work their way up to advanced, and really see themselves improving!
It's not just skiing that kids can enjoy at Yawgoo Valley though, not when there is snow tubing! Ever week throughout the winter season, there are 8 perfectly carved lanes as well as a tow rope, where the family can sit back and just enjoy the snow - no experience necessary!
Each of the sessions are 50 minutes, and it's great fun for those younger kids over 42" who can experience it with the parents.
If THAT wasn't enough, how about checking out the water park that opens over summer! Starting in June, the water park at Yawgoo Valley gives kids a chance to enjoy 750ft of slides, as well as THREE pools - all in a private setting. Kids of all ages can make a splash and relax in this supervized park.

For skiing in a place so close to home you're obviously going to get shorter runs ( a lot shorter). But it beats staying inside and being a miz fest. Plus the night skiing is awesome, and it feels great to be out in the cold. There's one good run off to the left that has a decent drop! At the very least - fun place to teach your kids and get some exercise. I don't know why people are complaining about the trail lengths. RI isn't known for its majestic mountains!

My wife and I brought our two kids 10 and 12 there just today on school vacation. We have never been there before today. I honestly thought it was going to be much better. The hill is not steep at all and it isnt long enough either. For $48 per family ($12 per person) we would have been better off buying two really nice inflatable snow tubes and found a big hill to sled for free. It really was not anything special at all. Plus the fact that we had to get there at 9:30 and stand in line for an hour to get tickets for 11:00 was a little much...Read More

Great place for beginner skiiers and snowboarders! I came at a weekend night and i got a private lesson for the price of a normal lesson. It was great! Small hill I know, but still, I learned how to ski pretty good on the first day!

Plus the fact that we had to get there at 9:30 and stand in line for an hour to get tickets for 11:00 was a little much (10:00 was sold out). We did more standing around than anything else today. You only get to sled for 50 minutes and most people only got 5 runs down the hill. I would recommend snow tubing if you can find a better place with a higher, faster hill and quicker lines (more than just 5 turns down the hill in 50 minutes), In our opinion Yawgoo just isnt worth going to.
