This is a nice local area - not pretending to be what it is not. The lifts are very very (sic) slow.. but the prices of $25 mid week are clearly a bargain so you deal with the slow lifts. Yesterday was a ski day...More

this is a wonderful ski hill for older skiers and those who don't want to dump tons of money into a ski day. LIft ticket was only $20.00 for an adult weekday.

Great for young kids and beginners, 5 chair lifts and multiple runs make a great 4-day ski vacay for the intermediate skier. Easy nursery runs and an amazing ski school mean beginners can learn at their own pace. Really amazing staff. A new ski fave.

I have been skiing here for decades. It has always been a "friendly" mountain. I do recommend getting out when they open. Being a mid-size mountain, it does tend to get pretty crowded on the more popular trails (coming down from the summit).. I like...More

Great family friendly ski area. Staff are always helpful and fun. Very safety oriented and maintain slopes well. Runs for a small area are excellent and varied for all levels. Ski instruction is very professional, I took a lesson and was able to improve significantly.

Beer and wine available in the upper lodge which is only open on weekends and holidays. It's a cafeteria, not a bar, though
