Full review

We had a great week between christmas and new year, hired a house next to the meadows so could ski right from the door. Lessons were relaxed and fun for the beginners in our party and the lower slopes were challenging enough for new skiiers to earn their stripes. Upper slopes were challenging for the experienced skiers and a bit icy in parts. No waiting at the lifts and slopes were not that busy considering it was the holiday. Family friendly and East Burke does have some nice restaurants and diners - would go back.
