Full review

Not bad for a bunny hill in the mid west. The groomers keep a decent amount of snow on this hill. Lifts seem like they need a little update but they work. You can't ask for much as this is a no frills ski place. Definitely is a mom and pop owned establishment. However, it can get surprisingly busy. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Keep an open mind and you'll definitely enjoy Mt. Crescent.
