We have visited many times since this park opened and seen them through the growing pains. I find, now that my boys are teens, there is not a lot for them there anymore. Having said that, if I had discounted tickets, I would certainly bring them for a few hours. My sons were excited this summer that they added a... More

Location: The tubing location is in the adventure park at the end of the resort. Tickets: If you buy a day activity pass, you can redeem it at the main chalet. If you buy rides individually, you buy at the shop in the adventure park at the base of the tube slide. The slide: The slide consists of 5 separate... More

Thank you so much for visiting us this past weekend! We are delighted you enjoyed the tubing and that you are planning to return from skiing. The parking is always challenged on family day weekend - our busiest of the entire year. We do hope that you were able to take advantage of the shuttle running between the various lots.... More

Went snow tubing on February 9th. This is our second time here (came last year). The snow conditions were excellent. We find the staff at the top of the hills to be excellent. They give excellent spins down the hill, if requested. This hill is much steeper than another hill that we've been to so we find that we got... More

Really enjoyed our 1st ever tubing adventure... and especially enjoyed the moving carpet that carried us back up the hill. Staff was pleasant and helpful, the tubes were in good shape and the facilities were attractive. There are restraunts and cafeteria's for buying beverages and snacks or full meals. Only bad thing is that unless you arrive early, you aren't... More

My kids attended and their ski passes do not cover the trick park. You have to pay an extra $10 on top of the close to $50 to use the trick park. Probably won't attend again.

Thank you for visiting and for posting your feedback. The terrain park pass is good for the entire season at $10. It is in place to ensure that skiers of appropriate age and ability enter the park. This is a common charge in ski resorts to allow us to monitor usage and liability. I do hope that you would come... More

Our family did the treetrekking adventure. There was my husband and I with my 15 year old son and 15 year old nephew. Before starting the activity the safety rules and the use of the equipment was very well explained. All four of us had a blast climbing the ladders, doing the rope walks and doing the zip lines. I...

We actually did the treetop trekking which is at Horseshoe,but owned by a separate company. The treetop trekking & zipline was awesome. You do need reservations though,although we called on Fri & got a 3:00 reservation for Sat. Some reviews have said afternoon appts can be slower, but we didn't really have a problem with that. Actually,at 5:00 it was... More

Chap - so glad you enjoyed Tree Tops and then ate at Silks afterwards!! TTT is a great activity that allows you to challenge your own barriers and have a blast doing it. Thank you for pointing out your thoughts on timing - I am sure others will find this very helpful. Wishing you all the best, Sean More

I bought the WagJag deal for the all-day passes and was disappointed that the OGO was still not operational. Got a return pass to come back but they will expire in Nov. Not sure if the OGO will be working before the weather gets cold. The line-up at the Tack Shop was not bad but it took more than 20... More

We loved the zip line. Some things that are included in a day pass or a la carte are things you can technically do for free (i.e. the maze and mini golf). The rock wall and archery were rather under-whelming. Our daughters loved mining for gems though it was at an additional cost over and above the all day pass... More
