My wife and I heard this was the place to go in order to learn how to ski, and they were right. We were skiing on the beginner slope within 2 hours of our lesson and perfected our skills by the end of the day. Our 2 year old daughter was in their reasonable priced daycare and allowed my wife and I to finally enjoy our time alone. However, we were skeptical because our daughter isn't potty trained yet and we don't think the care givers actually cleaned her after her messes. Although, it was crowded we were able to get on the slopes and have a wonderful experience. We plan to try other resorts in the area and compare them to Pats Peak, which happpens to be in close proximity to our home.
