We spent there 7 days. They have a good selection of slopes for everybody. The runs are not too long, but quite typical for Midwest. Nice food in the Homestead Lodge (I recommend pulled pork).

I've been skiing here since childhood--it's fun to take my kids now. Super friendly staff always make logistics a pleasure, including rentals, lodging, lessons.

First time skiing, the staff was wonderful - very helpful! Loved Lisa at rentals and Trish at the bar. Hot drink of the day was delicious as well :) Only disappointment was that no easy runs were open (and it was our first time skiing).

We had a wonderful time. Staff was super friendly in all areas we frequented. Not all runs were open due to a lack of snow but they are faring better than other hills in our area. Looking forward to returning for another weekend soon.
