This was interesting has a restaunt and a place to eat don’t forget the the snow peaked mountins it good for ski and snowborders more »
Very small ski resort for the casual skier. Small and intimate. Probably not for the avid skier but worked for us. Reasonable prices for lift and rentals. Will go back more »
The bathrooms, although earth friendly, stink pretty bad because of the oil recycling system & give me a horrible headache. The staff is great- friendly & helpful. The new lift is pretty neat. Family friendly! Overall Great place!
Grilled great hamburgers. Really pretty here
