Great place to get your kids into skiing

Full review

We have been going here for years and it is where our kids learned to ski starting at age 3. They are 9 & 11 and still going strong. It isn’t Aspen or one of the Vail resorts so if you are looking for that experience don’t come here. If you want a great place to relax and enjoy the mountain in a friendly, safe, easy going way without judgement and expectation, this is the place for you. The snow is usually good, the mountain is well maintained and they do it for a reasonable price.
