This ski hill is very family friendly. The snow conditions on January 14, 2007 were fantastic. They had groomed the trails and they had a couple of inches of new snow via lake effect off of Lake Superior. All of the runs were in good condition with a nice layer of powder on top. It did help that it lightly snowed throughout the day. If the family is looking for more intermidiate runs which are not boring this is a nice mountain. I was also surprise for a Sunday, it was not very crowded. Very few lines all day.
