Beautiful ski runs, friendly staff, great lessons, and a fantastic lodge with a cafe that offers burgers, fries, and other great meals for skiers and snowboarders who need nourishment after a few hours on the mountain. Awesome resort.

Feels like home. Great spring skiing with terrain to suit every ability. Happy talkative lift operators and super friendly patrol and resort staff all over the mountain. We hope to return sometime soon! Really is so much to smile about!

Probably not at the resort. But I would imagine you could find childcare in town. Try the Rec Center or maybe a sitter service.
