Full review

I had pretty low expectation for Grand Geneva based on some of the other reviews, but I went anyway just to try something different. Surprisingly, though it is small, it does have some terrain which is actually fun for an advanced skier. The trail "Top Notch" was steep and ungroomed, as was "œTimber". This was a really nice change from the overgroomed, allegedly, "œblack" runs most places have. Sure, it wasn't very long, but there was also no line for the lift, so I never had to wait to get back up the hill. On the down-side, Grand Geneva did not have much in the way of long, blue, cruising runs for intermediates. As a place to learn, though, it seemed fine. I could definitely see taking my kids there.
