Tow Rope is difficult

Full review

We made our 1st trip to Toggenburg this past weekend and it was a complete waste of time. I had my 6 year old who is just learning to ski. The rope tow is a joke. They should seriously consider getting the magic carpet style lift like Greek Peak and Song Mountain. Being that it was my son's 2nd day learning to ski, he was doing great skiing. The struggle was trying to get up the bunny hill. It was a busy day, there were a lot of skiers out, and the people working at the bunny slope just stood there and watched everyone, never attempting to assist anyone. People were falling down left and right off of the rope tow and no one ever came to help them. I find this very frustrating for beginner skiers who are trying to learn. It's hard enough for a beginner trying to learn to ski, it shouldn't be this hard for them to get up a bunny slope. We also attempted the other rope tow with the hanging black plastic things. As I'm trying to line my son's skis up, the hanging black thing came along and whacked my son in the head causing him to fall over. The guy working there just stared and never offered to show us what to do. So we attempted it again and my son got hit again and fell over. There was a line of people all staring with no one offering any assistance. The guy working the lift was in such a hurry to let us know that the lift was closing in 10 minutes but could not offer any help on how to get up the hill with these black things hanging off of a rope. He simply stared at us, watching my son getting hit and falling. I can't beleive he actually gets paid to be there. There were also young boys who were definitely not beginners on the bunny slope telling us we were too slow getting up to the rope and we needed to move quicker. They were extremely rude. I will never take my family to this mountain again nor would I ever recommend it to anyone.
