This mountain is perfect for beginners. It's affordable for those that not only need lessons, but the entire rental package. The staff that works w/ you is very sweet, dedicated and professional too. They are extremely patient if you need to rent equipment AND let you pick it up after 3pm for the next day so you don't have to wait in line your first day skiing. it's not a resort; so if you get there about 40 minutes before the mountain opens, parking is easy. Plus, food is fairly affordable if you decide to buy lunch. (we bring ours and pop it in a locker.) Let's talk about the mountain. It's a smaller mountain but really gives you a wide variety of options; from a very simple bunny smoke to serious challenging slopes. I have 14 and 11 year old boys and we've been skiing her 5 years. It's to the point that they know the mountain well enough to ski without me hovering over them. :-) It's really a great, affordable, smaller mountain that still gives you a great skiing experience without paying crazy prices.
