Depending on where you live in the bay area, I am sure this is the closest place to get some snow and skiiing. Its a great little ski place and perhaps the best for kids to learn and get their first experience with skiing. They have some WONDERFUL WONDERFUL ski instructors. Place is nice, small, and you feel welcome. Not intimidating like some of the overly commercial tahoe places. they also have a great Lodge, which is nice if you just want to hang out and watch the kids/ or your family members ski. Another thing I really like here is they have some AMAZING vegetarian options- like their soups. Not the typical ski cafe, run of the mill stuff- but some good stuff. So that makes it easy for the vegetarian folks, They have some good paninis too in the lodge. We have been going here all this season and will continue. The place they definitely need to improve on is there reservation systems. I think they dont have much automation/ computerized systems so it does slow down things. The people try their best to make it up, but there is only so much they can do. For example, every time we have to fill a form and sign a release waiver. If all this was computerized, you would just have to do it once and then click to accept every time. The process really breaks down on holidays since there are so many people/ visitors. i hope they have the good sense to make investment in that area and make the check in, registration and class booking process much more seamless. That is the only reason I will give them a 4 star.
