The customer service is horrible, no information at all. When ask questions you get thrown from one place to another even to the administration after working hours. The magic carpet was open with tons of ice rocks at the beginning, middle and end With that...More

A fun place. But I found it confusing, nobody offered much information, I had to go up and down many stairs to understand how everything worked.

The snow was light for the 2016-2017 ski season. The resort has really upgraded the lifts and snow making equipment. Don't forget the summer. The resort has both hiking and mountain bank trails.

Although it is a par 64, it is extremely manicured and a great track. Perfect for the average golfer. Not for big hitters. The par 3s are all challenging. Gorgeous views from all tees.

The visit was ok. Prices are too high, and no pre-order discount lift tickets available online. Rental equipment was typical, poor condition. It is what it is. maybe spend more $ and go to colorado.
