Grill, rentals, lift operators, instructors, ski shop....entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Smaller resort with decent number of slopes. Great resort for kids/teens and adults that are not "pro" skiers. Parking could use some improvement. It was a bit warmer this weekend, so lots of mud. A turn-around /drop off point at the lodge would be good since parking... More

Snowed a pretty good amount day before we came so the slopes were in good shape. A lot of people out for President's Day weekend but the staff seemingly kept everything organized and moving well.

My son & I enjoyed our outing here, and were actually surprised by the decent size & variety of the slopes, but there is some room for improvement. In no particular order: 1) The quad lift is too slow, as lift lines on a Saturday were pretty bad. This should be a high speed quad since it is the main... More

by far the worst place ive ever been to ski, the parking lot is gravel and pretty much mud and just from walking to the lodge my shoes were covered in mud, then three of my buddies bought a two day ski pass and they charged all three of us different amounts and when we realized this the second day...

Staff was extremely friendly, from grill, to ski shop manager, to rentals. Small resort but conditions today made this the perfect place to ski. Very reasonable rates!

We just took our Church youth group to Wolf Ridge Ski resort where our director set us up in three of the wonderful Townhomes. We made it to the resort just before winter storm Jonas hit on Friday 1/22/16. The townhomes are on a very scenic mountain side and with the snow totals of 6 -10 inches we were basically... More

It's important to realize this is a very small ski resort, but it is very very fun. Here are the things you should know: 1. Slopes are narrow 2. NOT good for beginners: not a lot of room, bad instructors, just not great. 3. Small. Small. Small. 4. Lots of fun 5. I enjoyed it. I would go back. Also,... More

Decent place. They rent almost everything you need. The only bad thing we experienced was when we rented we asked the cashier for two ski bibs but the cashier gave us only only one ski bib so we had to wait all over again in the line. Otherwise it was a good experience. They have four lifts. We happened to... More

First time here and we had a good time. They were making snow, so that is somewhat challenging. We are not experienced skiers, so there was really only one run that I felt comfortable doing, which was fine. It got icy as the day went on. If you are looking for fancy, this is not the place for you. The... More
