This place was Mobbed! It's was very pricey for barely any experience. Ridiculous incline for beginners. Might as well find a golf course with snow. So crowded you can't do a thing. Don't waste ur money ski with a wii

It's small and no frills. Perfect for the beginner skier or young child. We enrolled our young daughter in a private 1:1 lesson and we were pleased with how well her instructor engaged with her. We would and will return.

First off: we don't ski, we are not wealthy, and we aren't the sporty sort. Yet, we thought that we should give our kids some chance to learn what skiing is like, as part of their general education and launch into an unsuspecting world. They...More

Thunder Ridge is a small, family oriented ski area with 600 vertical feet and 100 acres of terrain. It has full snow making coverage so if it is cold enough, there is snow. This is a good place to learn to ski. Never ever packages...More
