  • Went to their Fall Festival, mainly to ride the chairlift to the top of the mountain & enjoy the autumn leaves. $12 per person. Before we paid, were informed it was a ride up but **walk down** ride. I...  more »

  • This place was amazing, whether you are a big kid or a little kid, in a group or by yourself, on a first date or a family date, this place will not disappoint. Different levels of skiing, different levels of downhill sledding, wristband passes available that give the holder unlimited use of equipment, including the lifts for the purchased amount of time. Couple hours or a whole day, your call, if opting to stay longer, bring food with you, especially if with any type of special needs. There is a simple cafeteria on sight where all the action is, and that's all he wrote.
  • Good Race Camp for holidays. Extremely family friendly. Good learners area. Difficult transition to the 'next step up' on the Double Chair, but if you can manage that, the terrain accessed by the high speed chair is easier!
  • Great ski mountain that's close to home. Lift tickets are a bit pricey for the size (for $20-$25 more you can go ride Gore which is a HUGE mountain compared to West) but with the $20 Monday and Tuesday night specials, it's great to get a few hours in after work. The new owners have done a great job picking this place up with numerous upgrades to the lodges and to the snowmaking and grooming equipment. The trails could be a little better, but being a small family run mountain it's great.
  • Great place to grab drinks and go skiing or riding. If skiing is not your thing, try tubing. Always a good time. Lift can be slow sometimes, but isn't that at every ski resort? I'm just impatient. Bar staff was great, all the beers I enjoy were on tap. They were crowded but I still was served rather quickly. Can't wait to try the nachos, they look amazingly delicious.
  • Night sking was good, many kids because of school groups but lift lines were manageable. Had been a couple times earlier in the season & conditions were icy but overall the ski staff are polite & fun for a small ski area. The restaurant is a completely different story. The barmaid was the rudest person I have ever encountered. Asked what they had on draft & she couldn’t be bothered to even pass the list over & says “they are written on the chalkboard.” The chalkboard was all the way across the crowded DARK bar & not legible. Needless to say, we will not be wasting money in their bar. We packed up & went to a more friendly establishment. And we are season pass holders. Won’t be next year!!!! And we had a similar experience with rude staff in the restaurant last year. Guess it wasn’t a fluke.
