The point of our trip was for my two friends to see and experience snow for the first time. We didn't go to sled. We went to have a snowball fight and build a mini snowman. The area is free, but parking is a little...More

The kids (9 year-olds) had a blast sledding for hours. If you don't have a sled, grab one for $10 bucks at the last gas station, Shell, on the way up. There are no amenities so grab food, drinks, and a bathroom break before you...More
