  • Love this mountain in summer and winter!
  • It's a tough but great hike to do in the summer, going up to the gondola then taking it down for free. Beautiful views
  • Mt Werner will always be my favorite place to ski they have a wide variety of runs with varying difficulties. For extreme skiers and snow boarders I recommend going on Christmas tree bowl you do have to hike up a little bit to get to it but it's worth it.
  • Good times with the fam
  • It is perfect. Three lodges, easy and hard runs, kid friendly, everything!
