4-starGreat for close-by skiing
Pros: Close. Really long bunny slope. convenient parking Inexpensive Convenient after-school hours tickets run 2-6pm Cons: Only one lift and it is 2-person, so hard to go with 2 kids if you are alone The only green slope takes you to a place that is far from the chair-lift and you have to walk back to the chair lift from there. But, the blue slopes are relatively easy.
