Clients About Us
For many years I have gone to Snow Mountains and tackled the tough mountain. New comers to Snow Mountains at this season will not be able to experience the thrill but they will still be able to experience the thrill of a real mountain with endless open back country.
I am level 3 snowboarder. Even so, it was kind of difficult to deal with some runs. The lower runs were always iced and bumpy. At the top it was better, but a little crowd. It seems to me Snow Mountains is a small place and there are not so many runs to go.
It’s a nice resort. Plenty of slopes, lifts, bars and incredible views. The town is comfortable. You can find everything you need for a good vacation. The distances are small and you can easily find your destination. It is one of the best ski resort for family, that I know!
