Perfect for family if you're not looking for extremely difficult. You can make an intermediate trail difficult if you go fast and hit all the jumps. When I was there it was 40 degrees at mid day and a little slushy and a little granular ice at the end of the day but not too bad. The slush and ice only lasted for about an hour. I liked the lack of lift lines. Since it wasn't cold I didn't mind that the lifts were not real fast. Yes it's a small mountain but you get a lot of runs for your money. It's inexpensive to ski, get a hotel and to eat although you have to find the right places. Diners are usually the best.
