Smaller and fewer runs, but far less line-ups. Great for families. Even though Private, newcomers felt welcome. Food offerings were excellent. Get there early to find a good place to store your stuff while skiing.

North face slopes hold the snow, great fall line skiing and riding. Slopes seem to progress from easy to headrest as you go from skiers left to right. Great food in lodge, nice friendly staff. Your will be impressed.

Private ski area but open to the public area M - F. No lift lines, great skiing and suburb grooming. No night skiing because it doesn't have lights but won't stop your fun.

My new favorite ski destination. Rented a place slopeside and loved it. For a weekend, this place was not crowded at all. Great mix of skiing and terrain for all skill levels.

There was so much snow and it had gotten very clumpy. After one run we were not given a refund. A gift certificate was given that I passed on to a friend as I will not be skiing again this year.

Open to the public on weekdays. Hills are well groomed, good selection of runs. Staff are very friendly. Fun to see everyone in the main lodge with their tablecloths, crockpots and wine for lunch. You would not try that in a public lodge! Place has...More
