Took 2 teen boys for the day. The lines actually were not that long for a holiday. They had a great time, had their fill, got a work out. As far as I know, the staff does a good job fitting them with equipment too.

We had a great time at Terry Peak especially if you are not an expert skier. They have a great package for kids that includes lift ticket, equipment, and two hour instruction. It was not that crowded so made for an enjoyable day.
