I had a wonderful 2 days of skiing. This was my first time here, and I was pleasantly surprised at the size and variety of the Mtn. Folks were so very friendly and it’s only minutes from town.

We've been quite fortunate on our visits to this mountain. 80% of the time we have received fresh snow and had opportunities to make fresh tracks through the trees repeatedly for multiple days in a row. The skiable acres are nearly as much as Crystal...More

I have been skiing here for decades and it breaks my heart to see what the current ownership has been doing to the mountain. It is a quaint little hill that has mostly green and blue slopes with nothing challenging in the way of steeps....More
