Nice easy slopes for beginning skiers. Lessons and rentals available on site. Discounts available if you buy in advance online. Snow Summit is part of Bear Mountain. Bear Mountain is a little better for beginners. They have a lot of easy runs.

The lift served mountain bike runs of various skills levels that were well maintained. The grill had excellent offerings of smoked meat entrees and the outdoor dining area was a lovely setting.
