I took my family here to celebrate my son's 7th birthday and introduce him to skiing for the first time. My wife and I are avid skiers and were so excited to share this activity with our children. Initially we thought this was the perfect place to bring the family to. As soon as we arrived, things went down hill and not the down hill we had hoped. It was not a busy day to say the least and the staff in the rental shop were more interested in eating candy and smoking cigarettes than helping anyone. Then we proceeded to the bunny slope where the flunky operating the tow rope cared more about hiding in his booth or yelling at people to get out of the way, than offering instruction to neophytes. My wife got in line and proceeded to help our son up and promptly received second degree rope burns on her hand while the rope shredded my $150 ski gloves. The attendant didn't seem to be too concerned and stated that he goes through six pairs of gloves a season. There was no signage to warn patrons of either dangers. After tending to my wife's wounds we persevered to show our children the fundamentals of skiing. We wrapped up our time at the "resort" with at couple of runs for the two of us while my father watched the children and were appalled at the empty beer cans/bottles littering the ground below the chair lift. In summary this place was like combining a traveling carnival with a trailer park. Stay away!
