Full review

When I came here for the first time, I was a first timer, and decided to take a private lesson. The instructor was nice and taught me very well. They have a good amount of beginner slopes for beginners to get good practice. The snow was soft and well groomed, it was very nice coming here and I had a blast.

However the 2nd time I went, I was a strong intermediate and some cons started to show up. The prices were high for lift tickets, and I had to wait in line for 15 minutes or more to get on the lift. In the morning, the snow was packed and very nice, but once the afternoon came along most of the slopes were icy and the snow was heavy.

So overall, I think Whitetail is a great place for newbies because the lessons were fantastic and they have a great amount of beginner slopes. Not recommend for families because of the high prices.
