Full review

There's a good variety of terrain, the snow school is great, and the food is decent. Snowmaking and grooming have seemed ok when I've been there, but it can tend towards the icy on certain trails. Also, the ski shop always has great deals whenever I go into it -- you'd think' they'd take advantage of people who find that they've forgotten their gloves, but they don't. Lifties could sometimes be a bit more attentive to what's happening on the lines. Good learner hills, and some decent blues and blacks. It's not Tremblant. But you can get there from downtown in 2o minutes.
