Shanty/Schuss has proven to be a great resort to visit year after year. The snow is better,(not as icy) as the other busier resorts. Ivans is always a good time to party at, although the food and service is questionable when busy. Great weekday specials and great e-mailed deals if your on the mailing list. The terrain parks have a little for everyone, they are maintained as nice, if not better than most other places I been. And you can't beat the fire pit hangout area between the parks at Schuss. Just hope you have a map trying to figure out how to navagate the area. Overall, for the money, the overall quality is outstanding. We will continue to visit the resort each winter.
