Lots of discount days. Short lines. Well maintained parks. Close to town. Well groomed.
Less than 300 ft vertical. Longest run takes 2-3 minutes. Not much powder. Steeps take only 10 seconds.

Full review

I worked here as a lift op last year after spending most of my life in the west - Tahoe, Colorado, Utah. If you've ever ridden a real mountain, you'll laugh at this place. The hills are so small you could blink and miss them. Still, its super close to town and well groomed. Great for beginners, families with little kids.
