First and last time visiting WV. Waited way too long for the express quad to top of mountain. Most lifts were closed, the new peak was closed. When asked about exchanging ticket for another day to have a better first time experience, staff argued with me and said it would not be beneficial to them to exchange my ticket, then... More

Today was my son's first time skiing & I've never been, so I was no help. We were in the area for a hockey tournament. Got the Learn-to-ski package. Everyone was so helpful, at Top Dog. My son got promoted to Novice & basically got a private lesson with Bill K. Fantastic place -- can't wait to return!

We brought our 3 year old here for a few days. He absolutely loved the Mogul Mites program. Sierra "CC" did a fantastic job and she really made for a memorable experience for my toddler. She was patient with him even when he wasn't cooperating. We were skeptical that he wasn't going to last more than a half hour, but... More

This review is for casual skiers like me. If you are an expert, you're already heading toward the black diamonds. Lower Meadows Ski Lift to the left as you face the mountain leads to great comfortable skiing. Leroy's Loop is great for beginners and those who want an easy hill. Stemtation is interesting enough to satisfy a novice skier all... More

This is a great area to visit. There's a nice ski lift that takes you up a decent height and you can experience amazing views. There's also a golf course, a small lake, great restaurants.. basically anything you could ask for!

The parking lot was full but the mountain was manageable, there were never more than a 3 minute wait at any lifts. The conditions were great.

This is a great place to ski for the weekend. The resort has a very nice little village with shops and activities. There is an ice skating rink as well. The slopes are great. Sometimes icy but they make their own snow on the regular so it's pretty decent. Not o difficult of a mountain either. Great for the whole... More

Was up there last weekend. I could now complain about the poor snow and how much ice there was on the runs, but that is not something a ski resort can change after the temps went into the high 60's combined with rain, followed by a deep freeze. The area has a great feel and the runs are very varied.... More
