Terry Peak is a mountain and ski area in the west central United States, in the Black Hills of South Dakota outside of Lead. With an elevation of 7,064 feet (2,153 m) above sea level, it is the most prominent peak in the Northern Black Hills area, and the sixth highest summit in the range; the tallest is Black Elk Peak (formerly Harney Peak) at 7,244 feet (2,208 m).
The mountain was named for Alfred Howe Terry, who had explored the area. It was first used as a ski area in 1936 by the Bald Mountain Ski Club when a rope tow was installed. The first chair lift was installed in 1952 and began operation in 1954. The ski area has since seen many upgrades in chair lifts, trails, and accommodations.
Currently, there are three "high speed" chairlifts (Kussy, Surprise, and Gold Corp Express, (or Blue, Yellow, and Red, respectively), which provide access to most of the runs on the mountain in a matter of minutes, as well as one traditional-speed lift (Stewart, or "Green"), and a Sno-Carpet.
