I went to Whaleback for the first time a few weeks ago, and have been back three weeks in a row. Night skiing for $20 is a great after work activity, and you can grab a quick beer in the lodge after the lift shuts...More

We were a little leary when we first arrived, but was pleasantly surprised once we got off the lift. It is larger than it appears. Very helpful and friendly staff. Considering the lack of snow this year, this mountain has done a great job at...More
