Full review

Many workers on the lifts did not know how to get to trails or what lift to use to get there. Trails are not marked well enough time to turn and end up in big trouble. Lifts not marked on the levels available at the top, could be more trouble. Also, for a beginner total Terror and fear!!!! Totally NOT the best place for a beginner. Save your money for any beginner, and go someone where more comfortable to learn. I have been working with my fiance for the last couple years at different ski mountains. She was doing well, until she skied HERE. On THE "EASY" hills. Very steep and not a tapered gradual decline to practice form. Overall, scared the "HELL" out of her. Myself, I enjoyed skiing here, have been skiing for years.
