So let's start with the good. The "mountains" here are actually some of the better/longer ones in the area (vs cascade and Christmas mountain). I definitely recommend to SKI here and that only. The resort is a worthless dump. The coils of the mattress sound like they're going to explode on your every move. The employees here might have a...

We went for NYE and bought "5 day package" that was offered. Rooms were quite outdated, floors disgusting, toilet broken and whole hotel is smelling at tobacco, pot and mold. Whole thing was building in the 70's and apparently never updated. In number of rooms people made parties with lot's of shouting, singing, drinking and weed smoking and we had...

We spent the last couple Christmas holidays (weather permitting) at this resort. Great people, very nice and service oriented. The slopes are good maintained and are diverse from bunny hill to black diamonds ... In all honestly The rooms do need an update. But we are there to ski and not to watch tv in your room :)

Disgusting. We went for NYE weekend and bought the "package" that was offered. Our first room was located at the Inn. Walking into the building was like walking back into the late 70's. Once we got to the floor- the smell of pot was overpowering. We called security within 10 min of checking in. We left to ski for the...

Sick slopes. Steezy set up. Best place around. People are super friendly and always smiling! Instructors are AMAZING best lesson ever! Highly recommend taking a lesson! Slopes have a huge range of difficulty!

Unfortunately, this lovely little gem in the middle of small midwestern town is in need of many updates. I could say the same for the staff~ they could use some review in terms of how to treat a guest. I would NOT stay here again.

We went for a wedding. The grounds are some of the prettiest I have ever seen. The changing of the tree's made it stunning. The weather was perfect. The resort not so much. When we arrived very late (almost midnight) on a Wednesday we were greeted by a wonderful women behind the desk. I'm glad she was knowledgeable regarding the...

I have to qualify this review in that the area did have above average rain amounts the week before our group left for this weekend trip. But what I saw with the greens at this 36 hole facility was unacceptable; burnt out areas of the greens, snowmobile tracks, inconsistent rolls. One of the Par three holes was completely shut down....

The best thing about this place - the wait/housekeeping staffs! They were very nice and offered to go above to make our stay pleasant. The rooms are VERY dated. Our room was musty smelling and carpets/bedding felt damp. Bathroom was SMALL and the hair dryer in the room didn't work. I saw a wasp on one door when walking down...
