We took 9 people ranging from 2 children to 2 professionals. The slopes were good for all ranges of ability. Perhaps not as challenging as some for the pros but a great introduction to the ski season as it was our first time out this year. The slopes were in descent condition especially considering that other resorts have huge bare spots. Late in the day there was so much use that many of the slopes were getting skied off and heavy in sugar sand type snow. We all had a really good time. It was crowded on some sllpes but others were not used as heavily and ramained good skiing until the resort closed. The lines were there but not nearly as bad as some ski slopes we have visited. The lines moved quickly and there were plenty of staff to help with any questions or directions. There a a few areas obviously marked as slow slopes and there are staff there slowing racers down. This is a nice addition when it is a green slope and is crowded. WE asked them about the "slow slope areas " and they said "Many newbies don't know what to do when someone is coming straight at them at a high rate of speed." and this is done as a courtesy. There were plenty other slopes where those that chose to could run straight down as fast as they could. we would definatly do this again
