“Neat to ride a ski lift...DOWN the mountain!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We come skiing here every winter. It is only about an hour from our house. Yet, this is the first time I had ever ridden the lift in the summer months. It was a neat experience. The lift can be a little unnerving for smaller kids, or those who have a fear of heights.
Once at the bottom, we had great fun. They have canoes, paddle boats, kayaks and a small inflatable obstacle course for kids. The beach area is roped off for swimming. The water is a bit colder than what many could be used to.

Being summer not a lot going on at the resort; however the lift down to the Lake and using the paddle boats was a highlight of our stay.

“Fun mountain lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The ride down is scenic, but a little scary for little kids. Lots of fun things to do for the family. My boys liked the playground equipment and inflatable obstacle course in the lake. The canoes, paddle boats, and kayaks were fun. The beach sand was actually pretty nice for a lake. My only suggestion would be for the lifeguards to monitor the swimmers more closely. An irate and irrational father stood on the docks yelling at boys whom he perceived were picking on his child while staff members ignored him. When he singled out our son, my diplomatic husband patiently talked him down.

“Fun ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We went there in summer. The scenery is beautiful. There are many lift rides across the mountain. This one had the best scenery. From top you can reach the lake and from there you can take paddle boats/kayak and explore the lake. There is also a small boat house restaurant near the lake. This was definitely the best event for us in the snowshoe mountain.
