  • An outstanding visit - so good we did it twice. The chair lift to the top can take it's time when it stops frequently - but once at the top the views and facilities are second to none. There is so...

  • I’m not sure where to start. Everything was wonderful, the staff were friendly, the food was good. There’s tons of stuff to do for people of all ages. I did the zip line down the mountain, which was a great time and allowed my to face some fears while having fun! This is specific to my family but may be important to other families. My mom is on oxygen full time, and requires tanks which run out every 45min-1hr depending on her activity level. The staff was super understanding and accommodating to her especially toward the end of the day when we weren’t sure if we’d have enough air to get down the mountain. They gave us a special ride down the mountain helping us carry her extra tanks so we would get back in time. So long story short, they are super accommodating and understanding to disabled people and their families. My only criticism isn’t even really a criticism, more so advice: GET THERE EARLY. PAY EXTRA FOR EXPRESS LANE. BE PREPARED TO WAIT. The line to get up and down the mountain can take up to an hour or longer plus the 30+ minute trip up and down the mountain. My family showed up at 12 and waited seemingly forever before getting up. Luckily we had special circumstances that got us down quickly.
  • Love this place so much! Sitting in the rocking chairs overlooking the scenery eating ice cream was such a great relaxing time! Great shops. The tree walk was awesome, seeing a bear while walking. Love the lift up and down. Lots to do with the kids too!!!
