The ski resort is the closest to Las Vegas, so it's okay for a day trip just to get a little skiing in, but there are only like eight trails, and they are all short trails. That wouldn't be a problem if it was priced appropriately. My issue with it is that it is usally more expensive than Brian Head, even though Brian Head is a way better resort. I will say this though... If you are truly a first-time skiier, then it's actually not a bad place, because the bunny hill is the easiest I have ever seen. If you are worried about getting hurt, this is probably a good starting spot until you are more comfortable on skis.
