Type: Sports Camps/ Clinics, Adventure
Owner description: The joy of skiing or riding really begins when you can turn and ski in control on intermediate terrain. A very high percentage of people who try skiing or riding never return because they try it on their own or with the help of well meaning friends.

We rented skis, boots, and bibs today and these people are awesome. We were headed to Ski Alpine when we saw their sign. We decided to take a chance. I don't know who the one lady was but she cut out discount coupons from a local magazine and offered them to us. We didn't even know the coupons existed. I... More
