This is a smaller mountain, and very family friendly. Lift lines were almost non existent. The trails are challenging enough with many options and skill levels. If you want something more economical and less crowded, this ski mountain is a great alternative to southern VT.

I was here over February break and had a great day. This mountain is not large but has some nice varied terrain. Its not slick and its very old school which I also like. You can leave you things in the lodge and not worry about them. Parking is easy, no shuttle needed. There are some small glades and a... More

This was my first time skiing at this resort. They did a great job grooming the mountain and the staff was freindly. For a smaller size resort I was impressed with the food service, great coffee shop, bar , restraunt. The only down fall to this place was there was a lack of lockers in the lodge everything left on... More

A great family friendly ski area , lodge is clean and has a lot of tables/seating. we skied on a Friday night in December, had a special for $15 lift tickets. The conditions were good, not icy and well groomed. Not long lines at the lift.

Skied here last week and had a great time. Nice lodge with big windows looking at hill. Snow was hard pack which was expected. Great cruisers to carve some turns. Varied terrain from steep headwalls to gentle rollers. No lift lines on a Saturday was amazing. Definitely worth the trip.

A wonderful small family friendly ski mountain. No lines and friendly staff make for a great family ski day. Totally manageable with young and new skiers.

Fun and reasonably priced. However, some of the beginners trails were not beginners at all! Not cool. I would not recommend for kids starting out. The bunny slope is fine but past that I would call the green ones way past intermediate.

Thanks for your comments. FYI we are cutting an additional 2.5 mile beginner trail from the top of the mountain. It will mimic Outback and Roundabout. More

I love this mountain! People are incredibly friendly. The snow is very well-maintained. The place isn't crowded, even on holiday weekends. I've experienced lessons with several instructors, another positive experience. My only complaint is the very limited trail markers. If you're not familiar with the trails and not actually carrying a trail map, you may end up guessing wrong. Folks... More
