First time skier, so I came here to take 2 full day lessons, and it was good. I learned a lot from nothing to knowing how to break and turn on the slope. The instructors are all very nice and professional. The slope are very nice too, so do come and check it out.
Nice place to learn to ski, they have a much longer training slope than the other side. You can rent snow mobiles and take a nice scenic path. I was not able to take the lifts and ski during my day here because of the wind, so I had to move to the other side of the mountain. I'll update my review when I come back this season. Their food was just okay, but had good variety.
