Shanty Creek was an awesome place to stay. My husband loved the terrain park with the half pipe. And I enjoyed all of the easier runs since I haven't skied in 3 years. There were also many fun family activities like dog sled rides, tubbing, sleding, sleigh rides, and our daughter loved the daycare facility! Cedar River was a nice place to stay with the ski in/out condos. We will deffinatly be returning next season!
