We liked that our kids could try skiing in an environment that was not overwhelming. No big looming lifts or crowds. There is a rope tow and a small easy hills. The instructor was super patient with our kids. Lessons were reasonable as was the rope tow ticket. You can't rent skis here but there are many places around Leavenworth. We found them to be quick and easy to rent. I'd say for elementary age kids looking to give skiing a try this is a great place. We also spent an afternoon tubing which was great fun for some and a little scary for our younger ones who ended up in a nearby park sledding. There is a warm up cabin with big fireplace and inexpensive meals (hot dogs, nachos, cocoa). Not upscale by an means but totally fine. Overall a nice little place.
