  • We rode the chair lift up the mountain and had a wonderful hike. There was a good naturalist to set you on the right trails. Lots more to do like zip lines, mtn bikes etc, just ran out of time. 
  • Nice little town friendly people. Lots of charm. Mountains are beautiful. Only 1 day needed to see all the sights. We visited out of ski season. Early fall. Winter might be quite different. 
  • I've spend two winter & summer seasons here now. It's not the biggest resort, the lifts are a little slow, and it could use a park - BUT the terrain here is amazing. Lift queues are minimal if at all ...  read more »
  • tried to get on the nonexistant t-bar 9 times. i made the guy fall :) p: (snail) he slipped it was delayed reaction cuz i never helped him up. also they would not let me zipline with my snowboard. i went snowboarding also my screamo music wuz distracting me so i fell on the huge jump
  • Rather ski here than in banff. Friendly staff, great slopes, and not nearly as crowded as banff ski hills
  • Where I live this is probably one of the more popular ski resorts. It's close to us and the snow is generally really good as long as the seasonal weather allows it. The resort definitely needs a little bit of TLC though, it is starting to show its age.
  • I have yet to experience the "Epic Pow" that my girlfriend keeps telling me about... I'm sure I will eventually. Nice resort all the same!
  • Cheerful, positive, small town vibe with a great village and sick mountain bike runs.
