We went there on 02.19.07 and 02.20.07, the whole family, my wife, daughter of 5 and a half, mother and father, seniors. Great place for families! We all had a great time! Daughter tubing and getting acquainted with ski and a snow board, my wife and mom skiing and I boarding. It was our fist snow trip with a child. We would go to Sugar Ball. When we go there, we went to Sugar Ball again. It was not too family friendly! If you got a kid, forget about Sugar Ball! Got to admit, at first I was skeptical about steepness of slops etc. I wasn’t sure if it’ll be enjoyable enough. Once I got up and down, all my worries were gone. Come with confidence! Enjoy! The only downside is the ticket lines. At times they are too long! One more little thing, temperature wise, it wasn’t very cold, so second parking lot was full of mud. Try to park close to the main cabin.
