“One of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012 via mobile

Ski Hills are usually described as being good at one thing or the other. Marmot is very good at everything. It is an awesome hill to take the family - tons of green runs, easy to hard blues, and THE best tree runs anywhere. The knob chair is always waiting for those wanting the black or double black bump or bowl runs. The Sun makes it's way around the bowl throughout the day which means there is always a soft run during the day. Also, you will not wait in line more than 2 minutes - ever! The high speed chairs are better than any other hill. I've gone there for over 30 years, taken my kids there, and now take my teens there. If I take them to another hill, they always compare it to Marmot and want to go back.

“Fun for everyone.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

With the addition of the new chairs in recent years this is a great hill. It is set up so every level can go up any chair, the Knob, being the only exception, so the family or friends can always be together. Everyone can take suitable runs down and then meet at the chair to go up again. The fire pit and restaurant midway up is a perfect stop for lunch. It is also great to be able to ski to your vehicle at any time so you don't need a locker. Great ski hill!

Had a fun day on the slopes with my son. Was a misty morning but clouds broke up in the afternoon and we enjoyed the incredible scenery...and got a bit of a goggle tan! Snow was a bit sticky, but hey...its April and we were still skiing!!
