Fast lifts, great grooming, good variety, friendly staff
no night skiing. ;<
For southern Ontario this is our hill of choice. Snow making and grooming are top notch. Plenty of super fast lifts, with lifties who really work to keep the chairs full and the lines moving without being rude. You will spend more time skiing and less in line. Toughest hills are not as challenging as at Blue Mtn, but overall a good variety of terrain, and enough to challenge beginners and keep intermediate skiers entertained. Terrain parks are well laid out with good variety as well. Guest services staff are efficient and helpful. And it's 4 lane highway all the way from Toronto, so it's actually very fast to get to. No night life or hotel on site. Also no night skiing, which is too bad, but I suspect a hard economic calculation they've had to make. Chalet food is average in terms of price and quality (if you know what I mean). Chalets themselves are very clean and spacious, with plenty of fairly priced rental lockers and lots of picnicing areas.
