  • I visited on a late season Monday so the skiers were few and far between which made for a lonely day on the slopes. However, when snow started falling shortly after noon it didn't get tracked, making ...  more »

  • Plenty of snow, plenty of powder, and plenty of challenging skiing, with enough blacks and double blacks with steep tree skiing in the powder. Snowed all day for us, keeping the powder fresh. But the ...  more »

  • Place is nice and food are fine... we are there for the view anyway, winter wonderland, kids love to play there and I just watch... renting stuff is a bit expensive for the whole family. Good place, kids love it and I prefer to stay warm with the foods, fairly clean.
  • Our family had a BLAST! We went up mid-week and we're able to park in the second row. We had done our research previously and had three kids in snowboarding lessons and one in day care. We arrived early and everything was extremely stress free. I really enjoyed the terrain(even though most the mountain was closed.) My wife said she would be willing to drive the 3.5 hours to come back instead of going to our local mountain which is an hour away. The school was good and the instructors did a great job with our kids even though the 4 year old was totally off the wall that day. WE WILL BE BACK WITH FRIENDS!
  • Decent ski resort, and many fun routes, but always crowded. Lots of crazy kids come here, so watch your back, coming down the slopes. Everytime I ski here, someone runs into me from behind. Also, they often have problems with their pass readers...
  • In love with this place. Awesome trails and best all levels of ski/snowboard parks, plus spectacular views.
  • I have a food sensitivity issue with many things, I am very aware of which food has which ingredients, which people should know about. If you are going to complain about having gluten in your meal look at what it is, hamburgers(I wonder if it has gluten), no it has wheat, as in gluten. All of the skiing is amazing
