Pros: Lots of snow, friendly staff, lots of runs for all ability levels.
Cons: unfortunately it can get it's fair share of rain during the season.
I've been skiing Hemlock for around 16 years now. Great little ski hill.It has a wide variety of runs for all levels. If the expansion plans come to fruition, this could potentially be one of the best resorts in western canada.
One of the best aspects of Hemlock is it has 2 beginners areas. The bunny hill and the yellow chair which is a wide run and is a slower skiing area for beginners. It's great for those learing to ski/board but are past the bunny hill stage.
A lot of people seem to complain about the road up to the hill, honestly it's not that bad and the province does do a fantastic job maintaining it. I've never felt unsafe driving the road.
The food at Molly Hogan's is excellent and reasonably priced(for a ski resort).
The hill also has a full service repair shop, rental shop and the skyline store for your equipment needs. The hill also has tubing and snowshoeing.
There are a couple chalet rental companies on the hill and they sleep anywhere from 2 - 20 people.
