Pros: Inexpensive, great place to learn, freindly staff, well maintained

Cons: Short runs, it's the midwest!

I ski here 20 to 30 times a year, I go after work and on weekends, I have a season pass.  A nice place to put your skis in the snow. There is a bunny hill, terrain park and some descent blue/black runs.  The staff is great, the rental area is efficient.  They have a remodeled retail shop.  For nightlife there's plenty in the Iowa/Illinois Quad Cities, the district of Rock Island is usually happening.
