My husband, father-in-law and I took our motorhome down Friday night and slept in the parking lot. Up and on the mountain at 9am. Nicely groomed and well kept mountain. Sun shinning and nice people all around. Not as challenging as some other mountains but a nic comfortable day of skiing. Everyone should come give it a try. Lodge is nice too!
