We took our family to Snow Valley for a day out skiing. The boys are new skiers, ages 7 and 4. We found that the hill was very very popular with ski school lessons happening. My chief complaint is that the ski schools all landed at one lift at the same time, and then they got priority access to the chairs (which is typical, and not usually a problem). But it meant my family had to wait in line for 30 minutes to get on the lift (not exaggerating, there was a clock at the lift). The lift operator was working the line-up but didn't seem to have a system for which line merged when, so really it became a guessing game as to which line would advance next. Add in the ski schools now coming back down for trip #2 and it was just an awful cold wait. We paid for a ticket too!!!!
Second issue - the 4 year old gets a $8 ticket, which I love that it's so deeply discounted when we're buying for 3 other people. Son started to enjoy the Kidz Village area, actually skiing on his own and taking advice from Mom! So it was incredibly irritating, when yet again, here comes the ski school and we're kicked off the baby hill. No signage, no advance warning, just the boot.
The chalet is nice and it's easy to park and bring in a cooler bag of snacks.
But for the money we'll go to Mount St. Louis Moonstone next time. The hill isn't big enough to accommodate the volume of ski school traffic + regular tickets.
