Wide open beginner mountain...Elkhorn side a bit steeper with only a few long runs and slow double chair, but very few skiers on this side. Beautiful lodge with carpeting, wood and brass...very small locker area and no real place to dress except small locker area...More

Dollar Mountain is a great place for a first time skier or kids. It's big enough so its impressive but small enough not to intimidate anyone. Its a fun little mountain...but once you become experienced you'll want to hit big brother, Bald Mountain.

Originally meant for beginning skiers of all ages, many senior citizens now choose to ski on Dollar with many new, no-so-difficult runs.

We took the kids skiing over the Christmas break. The lessons here were expensive but terrific - patient and experienced instructors and lots of activities to keep the kids engaged. As a vehemently intermediate skier I was bored with the mountain by mid-day, although the...More

This is THE place to learn how to ski or board. Start here before being overwhelmed by the vertical challenges of Baldy. Sun Valley ski school is THE best, not cheap, but the best. Intermediate skiers will be easily bored, if you don't head directly...More
