Full review

Beginner: Lots learn here but its average and very programmed instruction, not bad and overall good for families. Intermediate: Most of the terrain here is right for you, you will like it, overall good ride/ski with just a taste of challenge. Advanced: If your advanced you can find something fun anywhere so here its ok you will have a good time skiing with your family Lifts: Overall slow to moderate but its a short ride so not bad Lodge: nice overall, clean, friendly, good food, pub is nice, workers are nice and seem to take pride in their work. Not hard to find space or be a lodge rat even on crowded days, they did a good job here. Family: Nice family place, easy to keep together and find each other so this is a good choice for a weekend trip There are also lots of things in the area for non skiers. Overall not one of our favorites, we ski it every couple of years and its consistent, many like it so its not a bad addition to your list and good for families.
