  • It's a tough but great hike to do in the summer, going up to the gondola then taking it down for free. Beautiful views
  • Mt Werner will always be my favorite place to ski they have a wide variety of runs with varying difficulties. For extreme skiers and snow boarders I recommend going on Christmas tree bowl you do have to hike up a little bit to get to it but it's worth it.
  • It is perfect. Three lodges, easy and hard runs, kid friendly, everything!
  • Its super lit and a good ski ans snowboard place

Expect to pay the highest rates during the winter holidays, as well as at the peak of the summer season. One of the most economical ways to stay near the slopes is to choose one of the area's inns. These offer every comfort of home at a fraction of the price charged by the big resorts and chain hotels.
