Full review

We went for the first time 2/24. It is the 2nd place I have been in southern MI (though I have been all across the country). It is a great place to take the kids to learn as our 5 yr old son loved the "magic carpet" over the tow rope at the previous place. I liked the magic carpet also as I didn't have to hold him as I do on the tow ropes. BIG plus. The facilities are clean and lifts are modern with a high speed lift. One request I would make is that they designate one of the green runs as a "slow" or "family" ski zone as I felt like my son and I were going to be run over several times while I tried to teach him. That is the reason for the 4 out of 5 on the family friendly scale. Overall rating and downhill terrain is based on Southern Michigan and we will definitely go back.
