Full review

Good enough length of beginners runs for those who are willing to learn snowboarding and skiing. The resort need some magic carpets though just like other resorts so that it can draw more kids and people to get introduced on this Winter sports. I am an avid skier for years and I just learned snowboarding this year and this resort has helped me for sure because of its length of runs which are enough to make linking turns, because I have been to other nearby resorts locally but they have short runs. At least this particular resort gives you enough pitch of slopes and runs to be able to master your turns either J-turns and C-turns. Check out our pictures here with both my skis and snowboard. The night life is also great because you can always go to nearby bars if you just need a drink for awhile.
