We have gone to this area for about 8 years now and really enjoy the whole atmosphere. I am not a great skier, but LOVED the ski-tubing ! My 7 year old son liked it too. With other things so close by-there are plenty of family things to do and a few nice restaurants. If your looking for shopping malls and fast food, this isnt the place to go. We plan to return at the end of this month and would recommend it to anyone !
