We also had my sister and her husband who had never skied or snowboarder before learn on the bunny slope. They enjoyed the area. Also every single employee on that mountain... More

If you're skiing with little ones, this is the place to be. We headed right to the top of the mountain and over to the Emerald Chair. The terrain in this area was perfect for out kids.

While I've skied at much bigger ski resorts this is the resort we chose to bring our three grown but still young sons to learn to ski. There are plenty of places to stay that are within walking distance of the lifts. The mountain, although not huge, has a nice array of runs for all skill levels but to me... More

We stayed at the Alpine Lodge and this lift is walking distance. We purchased tickets through a kiosk and got right to skiing. Very easy! The Lift House Bar and Grill is also right there and offers great food and craft beers. Can't wait to ride this chairlift in the summer and do some hiking.
