Full review

Excellent location near the Rockland/NJ border. Convenient for most schools (after school clubs/activities) and reasonably priced ($10lift/$10 rental) for students and accompanying parents. My daughter had a very patient and thorough instructor (Skye) who managed to help her conquer her fears (she's a newbie 7th grader) and after 2 lessons, on to the bunny hill lift.

Bring your own sawndwiches or eat in their lodge pub / restaurant. There's a warming hut/ building with a fireplace where you can bring your own food and wait for the kids to finish (if you're not skiing with them). The rentals are high quality and the assistants are helpful with gear recommendations.

Better and more family friendly than more expensive places in North Bergen!
