4-16-18. Drove by there today. It is a small ski area. Looks like it would be a good place to learn before stepping up to the real sloes.

This is a very small ski resort, so Purgatory is a better pick for this area when it comes to skiing. I liked the tiny Hesperus Store at the bottom of the hill as its been there since I grew up nearby in the 70s.

There are no long lines at Hesperus Ski Area. This is a wonderful place for a young family to ski. It is relatively inexpensive and a great place to learn to ski.
