The resort features 45 holes of golf and 22 tennis courts. There are a few different restaurants on the mountain along with convenience stores and cafeterias. With 40,000 square feet of meeting and event space, the resort is known to attract from conferences.

While the mountain is at a lower elevation than many mountains, it can actually get a lot colder than many. In fact, it’s typically 10 to 15 degrees colder than the towns in the valley. What it lacks in snow, it makes up in convenience to large metropolitan areas.

There are lessons available on the mountain, including group and children lessons. If you can, get to the mountain during the week since lift lines will be short or non-existent. You should also hit the lunch spots before or after the noon busy time.
