New to skiing and we all signed up for weekly lessons (4yr old, 10yr old and parent). There are some really nice beginner hills that allows the wee ones to graduate immediately off the bunny hill and learn quickly with longer gentle runs. Ski school was well organized, nice kids, and little ones each had jr instructors to help them ride the lifts and support learning. Great family atmosphere, lots of anglophones as well as francophones, all within 40min of home (Nepean).
Not as many unsupervised teenagers bombing hills, safe environment, let me 10yr old ski with friends. Equipment felt safe, mostly left unlocked. Not overly crowded, line-ups reasonable on most visits.
Only complaint is that the bathrooms in the lodge often smelled foul and number of toilets were constantly out-of-order (always one or two available though). Bathrooms could use some maintenance and even more regular cleanings.
Overall, great family ski hill and we'll be back next year for lessons.
Wakefield offers nice selection of restaurants and pubs for apres-ski.
