Full review

This place was very small and someplace I would go again. The staff was very young and not very professional. The rental area was very small and did not provide very good equipment. The "black diamond" run was barely steeper than the bunny hill and, I thought comparable to beginner runs I have seen in Idaho or Colorado. When I was there they didn't have any jumps set up and only one rail available. It would be a good place to go if you are learning or with small children who are learning. A major downside to learning there however, is that it is generally full of teenagers who grew up there and go tearing through the runs because they are bored and there is no advanced runs for them.
