Good if your in the mood for groomers. Or at christmas and spring break

Posted

Pros: Good moguls and lifts. Park is awsome

Cons: Small, not much snow

Great resort if its christmas time, as SSV and LL get extremely busy. Its got a great park and Banff is 5 minutes away so really good nightlife. Suprisingly steep for the experts in parts. Great moguls. Really a good family resort too. This isnt a hill you would travel a distance for, but worth checking out if your'e hitting SSV or LL.
