They have great ski packages and the mountain is beautiful, but there are only 42 trails so if you are staying multiple days you might get a little burnt out. The lodging is very affordable and the rooms are very clean, however the rooms are a little dated and have no tv's so you need to take something with you... More

We just got home from a weeks stay and loved the place!! We rented a suite one night and Cabin #2 for 6 nights. The suite was roomy and clean but the cabin was more to our liking because of the privacy, coziness, layout and proximity to the pond. We don't have kids so I can't give any feedback on... More

We love Sipapu! Been there multiple times. It is small enough we don't have to worry about our 9 year ols son being safe on the mountain. The workers are nice, and the prices are affordable. The cabins are a basic....nothing fancy.

We booked two nights in the Duplex over Memorial Day weekend. We were planning to have a relaxing family weekend with kids and dog in the mountains. After we arrived, we quickly packed-up and left. These are the reasons why: -- The Duplex was in a parking lot with no privacy. In the hour we were there, several groups of... More

We really enjoyed skiing Sipapu! It is a great family friendly resort. Every staff member we encountered was exceedingly friendly and helpful. All in all there was just a great, laid back, happy vibe. I liked that we could bring our own cooler for lunch. We also tried the restaurant and it was great. Also the latte made with Starbucks...

STAFF bad attitudes last Saturday almost ruined our day.
