This resort is very friendly - great change to have John Mellencamp and Bob Seger blasting over the PA.
The Nastar slalom course is great value (and addictive) $10 for unlimted runs, register free at It has professionla timing.
The resort is nice, great snow.
For long distance visitors, this is a nice trip out of Chicago or Detroit, maybe combined with a vist to the Amish/mennonite country just over the border in Indiana.
Also if you intermediate or above, may b fun to combine with a visit to one of the other 2 resorts in area: Timber Ridge and Swiss Valley. It's just outside Kalamazoo.
