Full review

This little ski area reminds me of places I visited as a kid. The vertical is a little smaller than the big leagues and the selection of runs is limited but, the slope has a consistent pitch and you can get a lot of skiing squeezed into a short period of time. I visit this area whenever I'm in Vegas and the snow permits. It's true they may be a little light on snow at times and you'll need to keep your edges sharp. People seem friendly and it's only a short drive from town.
