This is a great place. As a first time skier I didn't know what to expect. Having only seen snow one other time in my life skiing was a pretty big deal for me and I was excited to learn. The first day I took a lesson. I got there when it opened and it wasn't too crowded yet. I don't have the best balance so learning wasn't easy but, the ski insructors were so good and so professional that I was skiing very well by lunch. By the end of my trip I was skiing down their longest blue diamond run. I had a great time.
