  • It is a great skiing mountain. We had a great time skiing here. They have extended timings on holidays sometimes. The half day ski rental is around $75 & full days is around $120. They also have snow boards for rent. A restaurant inside for food.
  • Good purchase. Slopes and facility were clean and in good condition. The slopes proved to be more dynamic, having more bumps, hills, turns, paths, etc. The staff was very helpful and the overall atmosphere was friendly. Obviously, this isn’t a high end ski resort on a MOUNTAIN and I’m not rating as one. Based upon the quality of the facility, how it’s kept and how it could be improved, I highly approve.
  • The pro: prices are good and facilities are what you would expect for a tubing park. The food counter staff is efficient and friendly. The Con: the weather was 14 degrees,didn't understand why the firepit wasn't going. Most importantly we're from Florida and never gone tubing before. When we got to the top of the hill I found most of the attendants there that were male, grumpy,dismissive and put off by any questions. I chalked it up to being real cold and a teenager. The rest of the day with my family we went to the to girls that were attending at the far end of the ramp they were pleasant. This place would have been just fine and I would recommend it with 5 stars but the last thing you want to deal with is a teenager with an attitude while you're on vacation. I understand it's cold, probably making minimum wage and they're being asked the same questions over and over but hey if you don't want to deal with it don't get the job.
  • It's not as good as Perfect North, but it's really negligible anyway since neither are really mountain. Mad River is a whole lot cheaper though, and the level of service is similar. I had a great time learning to snowboard here.
  • Nice facilities, high in price because there is no rate for people that gets there late, but the 1-hour class with Danielle was excellent, and the beginner's slopes were good. Maybe the problem that I saw, was that there is no enough assistance in the mechanical pulleys. People were falling, and no staff came to help, so that delay the time that you had for your rides. But we really recommend this place if you have the money, interest, and the time for skiing or snow boarding!!!
