My very first time at Shawnee. Can't say I was disappointed... What do you expect from 700ft vertical drop. If it wasn't because Camelback was packed to a "T", and we have two very eager boys, we won't have come here. Over all the mountain is full of beginners but all other areas were pleasantly quiet. We send the two boys to lessons, and surprisingly, the are the only two in the top echelon... can you say "private lesson" for the price of coach, yes one instructor took the two boys and the boys had lots of fun. I would like to broadcast my many thanks.
