Been bringing my kids here since 1995. They still love to ski here as adults. So many good memories. No long lift lines, variety of runs, great ski school.

My husband and I had a long weekend together. This was not our first time here. We went for night snowboarding. For how late it was in the season the snow was decent. It was a bit confusing to know where to go.

What helps make any of the courses, on or off-site more memorable is where you stay. Check accommodations that fit: hotel, condo, townhome or single family home. i love a TH looking onto the green at Cedar River.
