With lots of beginner and intermediate runs, this was a great place for me to learn how to snowboard. It's a really great place to take your family if you're not looking to spend lots of money at places like Squaw, Heavenly, or Northstar. It's also one of the closest resorts to the SF Bay Area which makes it good for day trips.

If you're looking for a lot of back country, good powder, and more advanced runs overall, this is NOT the place for you.
