My family absolutely loves this place! We have been coming since the kids were 2. The mountain is perfect for kids and just enough to keep the adults entertained too. It is a quick trip from Charlotte and very affordable. The lodge is older but...More

I you have young kids that you want to learn to ski this is the place. They have a great ski school. Mt is very small but it does not get near the crowds of the other big two.

Older ski resort, yet very, very clean and well maintained. Kids had a blast. Jesse our instructor was awesome. If you don't want to ski, stay indoors by the fire. Either way, you can't go wrong. We'll be back.

Rent the equip from them, they have better stuff than the places in town. Prices are prolly comparable, but I don't have the exact price.
