Pros: Community Ski Area Par Excellence
Cons: Short runs
Showdown is a great place to take your family skiing. You can't get lost and there are plenty of runs to suit everyone's tastes. Experts will enjoy the steep runs higher up the Ridge, while more gentle souls will enjoy the runs lower down, and all can meet up at the bottom to ride the chair together. The signature runs are Glory Hole and Big Seven. Many of the runs are named after local mining claims of renown. Stay at Bob's Motel in Neihart to get the full Showdown experience.
