It's a nice family ski hill, but not a "mountain resort"

It's a tiny mountain, the lifts are slow and the lines can be long... but it is snow and downhill.

When the lines did get long they just had a big blob of people with staff yelling to try and get people queued up.... it was a bit of a mess relative to many places. A bit of extra rope and some stakes would do wonders.

Waiting a bit to get on the lift is one thing on a normal mountain, but honestly a 'normal' ski will get you to the bottom of these slops in about 1.5 mins so, combined with the slow lifts, that can work out to a lot of waiting relative to the amount of skiing.

All that said, it's the only option in the area if so you're looking to treat a case of the ski bug it provides for a fun day on the slopes. They call it a "Mountain Resort" but honestly that's a bit over ambitious. It's a nice family friendly local ski hill.
