Full review

I was told by a friend to take my kids to Woods Valley and was not steered wrong. Very easy slopes for the kids. Trails seem longer than Snow Ridge. One very nice thing they've done is to place benches at the bottom and top of the main chair. The snowboarders seem to appreciate that they are not having to sit down on snow around the lifts and it was nice not to have them glogging up the tops of trails sitting on the snow. I wish my local areas - Dry Hill and Snow Ridge would catch on to this and do the same.
I wish more of the hill was lit for night skiing. Once the lights came on the amount of terrain was cut quite a bit.
Overall, a very nice place to take the kids - probably a good place to learn as well - just judging by the terrain and the special learning area that is nicely off to the side.
