“lSunset grill well worth the drive”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Like: the scenic drive to Chestnut mountain; also watching the sunset from the dining room that overlooks the ski area; and the food (we had the walleye) was delicious. Dislikes: none

“Alpine slide was awesome”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We got there early and had to wait for awhile while they dried the slide. However, they passed the time with free lift rides while we were waiting. The Apline slide was worth the wait.

“Chestnut Mountain”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

What a view - beautiful! Had a drink and appetizer in the bar; had planned on dinner in the dining room but a little too pricey.

“dinner”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

got there too late to really appreciate the view, so I suggest to go alittle earlier for the sunset and view. The wait staff pleasant food hot steaks were alittle to done for us at medium but still very tastey entree.

“Great resort!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

This is a great resort! It has smaller hills for beginners and bigger hils for those who are more advanced. Also great rental of equipment for those who dont own there own. Additionally there is a nice cabin where you can purchase food and drinks and use the restroom! I plan on going this winter!
