Great affordable ski resort, with half day tickets, college student and junior (under 17) rates. Not the fanciest lodge, but decent and worth the cost savings over other, larger ski resorts. Good rental staff, and best of all not big crowds. Good runs and conditions.

This is a relatively short hike to wonderful views from long rocky areas so there is plenty of room to find your own private picnic spot on the rocks. Steep climb up but do-able by fit people and agile dogs.
