Pats Peak isn't a big mountain and it's not a destination resort, but it's a wonderful hill to go to for a pleasurable ski experience. The trails are relatively short, the vertical isn't impressive and the lifts aren't particularly high speed. But don't let that stop you if you want to enjoy a great day of skiing, particularly if you're taking the whole family. Like hundreds and hundreds of kids, our son learned to ski at Pats -- and now he's living the ski life in Salt Lake City.
The owners have done a whole lot over the past few years to upgrade the facility as a spot for weddings, reunions, meetings, etc. It really is a nice spot for a function.
