The area is nestled in a relatively remote, country atmosphere, about 8 miles from the corporate township. Its roads convey the spirit of heading to nowhere, but safe for an amateur driver seeking for the thrills of a beginner skier. Although the Sunday evening robbed a little bit of the crowd indulging it, but for the life of a beginner skier, it was just the atmosphere I was looking for. The staff of the place I can tell clearly brings into the place the spirit of family customer service. The staff, do really take time to patiently and enthusiastically appraise the place especially to "out-of-towners" like us. Very welcoming! I'm sure the place does not come close to Aspen or Albany, but for sure, with quite a variety of slopes ranging from beginners to pros, its a place where the chills of winter and the warmth of the people truly meet.
