We planned a "skiing" birthday party for our son's golden birthday, after hearing from someone how great groups are treated at Pine Mountain, not to mention the group rate is AFFORDABLE! The group rate they offer made it possible for our group to be able to ski (or snowboard) for the first time! The rate includes a lesson, a meal, a lift ticket, and of course with a choice of skiing OR snowboarding! The scared and timid first time skiers were taught so well in their lessons that they had such control they were skiing like a pro, and didn't want to leave! Our group will definitely be going back! Everyone there was SO friendly, almost as if we were friends for a long time! They were so helpful and patient with ALL of my many questions and needs to complete the birthday party! What a wonderful experience for everyone!! They even honored our son's birthday with a birthday greeting on the display board upon entering the resort! You will never regret bringing your group to Pine Mountain!
