Good for kids, nice lake, could use a walkway around the lake. I liked the hammocks under the shade trees. if you don't take the lift down to the lake your car will be covered with dust from the gravel road.

Take the time to ride down the mountain, its a beautiful view from all lifts ... The lake at the bottom is a nice place to eat or have a cold drink

This is a must do if you are in the village! We could see for miles and even passed over a momma deer with her twins. It's a little pricey but WELL worth it!

We all traveled from the top to the lake below. Some folks in our group had never been on a chair lift. Staff were great.

The cost of the lift is included in either a day pass (I do not know what that is) or, if you are staying at the resort, they charge a resort fee per day - the lift is included in that. Not sure what it is in September, our... More
