Location, location, location. You rent, you ski, you have fun, then you go home. All in one day. It can get crowded, so be patient. It is set up for families, with all ages of kids. Employees are adequately helpful. Vertical drop is good enough to make it worthwhile (in Missouri!) I don't know anything about the terrain park or the tube areas, so no comment there. Overall, if you are within 100 miles, you should go.
