“ski hill review”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2007

First review..good..people should know...and decide>>
Got some discount tickets for this hill...on line !!!..
visited this place in March 2007
As soon as I have arrived, noticed the lack of any terrain for skiing !!!!!(meaning at least for intermediates)>> ASK FOR A REFUND..THEY REFUSED...STAYED FOR 2 HOURS WITH MY KIDS...LEFT AND NEVER WILL COME BACK NOR I WILL RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYBODY!!!!!


>GOOD ONLY, if you have small children and want to teach them the first ski turns. and snow tubing
NOT FOR SKIING, unless the above applies !!!!

a plenty of space for parking..NOT THE SAME TO BE SAID ABOUT THE SPACE IN THE CHALET, IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A LUNCH INSIDE ??????too crowded when we arrive..

our impression about this place>>>... mom and dad will bring their little ones here for the afternoon to have a bit of fun on the little hill


...and still cannot understand, why they did not issue the refund to us !!! BUT THAT HAS NO EFFECT ON THIS REVIEW !!!

“snow tubing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2006

We went specifically for the snow tubing. They do a great price on weekdays where you pay a fixed fee & tube all day. However, schools must take advantage of this because the day we visited there were hoards of schoolchildren on outings. 2 lifts were operating, but at times the queues became a bit hefty. Saying this, we didn't have to queue for longer than 10 minutes.

The snow tubing was a fantastic experience suitable for all ages. We have no comparisons but can safely add that the slopes were perfect and completely thrilling!

But we thought the grub & refreshments in the cafe were overpriced.

Staff were full of fun and very pleasant but 2 women (at least I think they were) rather liked the sound of their own voices. We saw them yelling at people quite viciously at times (for horseplay). Hearing them sounding off like fish wives spolit the atmostphere & my kids had to witness it. I felt so embarrassed for the people on the recieving end! These women should consider a career working at bootcamp!

Despite some moans and groans, snow tubing at snow valley is certainly worth a visit. The day was good value for money and I will remember it for a long time for all the right reasons.
