Full review

Went here for the first time this past weekend. It was a warm day, so it was understandable that some parts of the hill had no snow, which wasn't good maintenance on their part, but understandable I suppose. They didn't turn the snow machines on during the day, which may have fixed that.

This is a good place to learn how to ski, as the main hill isn't that crowded. However, you get what you pay for, as there is only one hill. It got really ice in the evening though, so I wouldn't recommend night skiing. Went with some beginners and newbies and everyone pretty much got to the green slopes towards the end of the day which was encouraging. The food is okay, the bathrooms are dirty, but this isn't a bad place to learn overall.

Some of the chairlifts are really tricky to slide off of and it got progressively worse and icy as the day went on.

I wouldn't bring my own ski's here at all, as they will probably get damaged.

Rental shop is efficient though lines tend to build up. There is plenty of staff though so we didn't wait too long.

Their snow patrol is also very efficient and friendly and they helped my friends get up a bunch of times when they fell. The staff is friendly, the places could be better maintained, but its cheap and decent place to learn how to ski.
