Great for young kids and beginners, 5 chair lifts and multiple runs make a great 4-day ski vacay for the intermediate skier. Easy nursery runs and an amazing ski school mean beginners can learn at their own pace. Really amazing staff. A new ski fave.

Great family friendly ski area. Staff are always helpful and fun. Very safety oriented and maintain slopes well. Runs for a small area are excellent and varied for all levels. Ski instruction is very professional, I took a lesson and was able to improve significantly.

Beer and wine available in the upper lodge which is only open on weekends and holidays. It's a cafeteria, not a bar, though
