Sorensen Park is closed to the public

Full review

Our family arrived with two beginner skiers who had paid Rocky Mountain ski passes and we headed to Sorensen park where the magic carpet rides are perfect for learners- we were told that we could not ski there as it was for ski school and closed to the public. There website states it’s a great place for learners. We have skied the magic carpets at Sorensen park for years with many family members and it was a great start to learning. On top of that they turned away two young children and told their families to take the young kids up the lifts or maybe just use the snow outside of Sorensen park. The kids were much to small to get on a huge chair lift. After paying for parking and hauling the family to the beginner hill we were left disappointed and with paid Rocky Mountain passes that we couldn’t even use. Winter park use to have it all for all ski abilities but now it sucks. Take your family else where.
