I would only recommend this place if you were short on cash or really desperate. Being a broke college student i was both. Having grown up in colorado and skiing in places such as beaver creek and vail i had high expectations for this place. I understand that this is not the rockies. In the morning the snow is very icy and as the day goes on it turns into a sand like structure. It feels like youre skiing in quicksand. I would not recommend this place unless you are desperate. Lots of first time skiers on the slopes as people were dropping like ants on the slopes.
