  • Not a bad ski resort. A little run down, but still fun. Cheapest lift tickets you’ll find.
  • Our Youth Group was there today, and I was the Keeper of the Stuff. Dodge is a gentleman that works there. He made sure I was comfortable as I sat in front of the fireplace and watched TV for the hours we were there. Met a lot of nice people too. The Youth had fun skiing, snowboarding, tubing. A suggestion though, put the tubing near the skiing/ snowboarding, so a vehicle is not required to go from one place to the other.
