Full review

The ski resort is tucked away in a lovely little valley, it's one of my favorite slopes. The trails wind through beautiful, tall pine trees. I skied there on 3 occasions in the evening (after 4:00) and at times, it felt like I had the mountain to myself. Skiers seems to be more laid back and considerate than at other resorts. My only beef is with the slow service at the rental shop. On my last visit, though there were only 2 people on front of us, it took close to 30 minutes before we could finally hit the snow. The employees looked like they were bored out of their minds. My rental skis where very dull, I could probably have swapped them.
