Full review

I am just starting to learn how to snowboard this yr and this was the first place that I did it at.
The instructor (1 hr private) was really good and the hills (green and blue) are really easy to learn on. They are not very steep and people on the hills are very good about staying out of each other's ways.
The black diamonds at this place is not nearly as intimidating as you would think. Their actually pretty tame but again that makes it really nice to learn on as you get used to the increased slope.
My complaints about this place is that it gets really crowded in the afternoons (around 1 to 4 especially) and that tends to wear down the hills so that they get pretty icy later in the day.
The blues and blacks aren't so bad though. They will hold much longer.
