“Awesome place for beginner to ski”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Took my daughter on her second down hill ski trip. Devil's Head has a conveyor belt on the bunny hill. A superior way to get to the top! And they have a wide bunny hill - lots of space for beginners. After a few hours we tried the lift to the easy run. The operators slowed the lift for us to get on and off the first time. After that we had several great runs. She is hooked! Great place to ski.

“Great skiing and snowboarding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We go every year, enjoy skiing and friendly staff. The cafeteria is a la carte and a nice place to warm up. Enjoy the bonfire outside while you're there!

“Good People Dump of a Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This place is what it is. A dump. That being said, the staff are nice and accomodatiing. Don't get me wrong, I got nothing but love for the place. It is just a cheap dump where you can go golf/ski and party.

“Wedding reception here...”

We held my daughter's wedding reception here and it was wonderful...great food, great service, amazing facility. I was disappointed in the room accommodations...ours felt chilly and damp and the walls were all brick!
