Peninsula is a village situated in Summit County, Ohio, USA. It is part of the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area and its exact location is in the middle of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This unique park provides a source of tourism to the village. On its east side, Peninsula is bordered by Boston Heights.

Peninsula is popular among skiers, because it offers something unique in northeastern Ohio. Two in one ski resorts, the Boston Mills – Brandywine ski resorts. The two resorts are only 5 minutes away by car, they are owned by the same company and you can use an exchangeable ticket for both of them.

They lie at an elevation of 128 to 420 ft/39 to 128 m, having a summit elevation of 201 to 660 ft/61.2 to 201 m with a vertical drop of 264 ft/80.50 m. The areas for the beginners are ideally located near the lodges, while the peak of the north bowl is one of the many black diamond slopes, which features a mogul – filled run.

The Brandywine resort owns a half – pipe, which is one of the most challenging in the Midwest. Another unique asset of the resorts is the three terrain parks, enabling skiers to try their best moves and moguls. One of the parks is The Park, which is the one BMBW (Boston Mills-Brandywine) is known for. It is a tight setup of a ton of features, which will blow your mind!

The Progression Park is situated off of Outer Limits at Brandywine and is great as an introduction to freestyle features. Ride on setups and low drop offs that can raise your confidence, before moving to the big park. The small jump is great to learn the fundamentals of spins and grabs and also for catching your first airs.

The Pride Park is situated at the top of Peter’s Pride at Boston Mills and is good for intermediate skiers, containing features that are ranging from street style down rails to small flat boxes. If you are looking for a flow of rail features, take the Peter’s Pride lift and go left off the lift, or if you wish to try the jump line with rails, go right the drop pad.

Although the average snowfall in the two resorts ranges from 60 in/152 cm to 152 in/386 cm. If mother nature is not kind enough to gift these places with enough snow, the resorts are prepared covering 75 ac/0.30 km² of ski slopes with 100% snowmaking.

All these features are accessible by using 18 available lifts, 8 rope tows, 2 double chairs, 5 triple chairs, 4 quad chairs with a capacity of 20000 passengers per hour. The trails level differ, 20% for beginners, 40% for intermediate skiers and 40% for experts.
