This is the first time I've ever gone skiing/snowboarding. My husband has gone skiing many times, but not in a long while. We went here because it's not too far away, and he'd been here many times before- albeit close to a decade ago. Only issue we had getting there is that google maps tries to direct you down a road that's closed. Once we got there everything went well, we got our passes, and were all set to try. Our only issue was that while my husband is good at skiing- he's never used a snowboard, which is what I was trying (based on leg length, center of gravity, etc. snowboarding was recommended for me.) After a few short slides and falling down, a worker there came out to check the tow rope that pulls you up the little hill. He saw we were having issues, and came iver and showed me how to use the rope, and gave me some tips for getting down the hill. They do offer lessons that you can pay for- but we didn't pay for lessons (because I stubbornly wanted to figure it out myself) and still had somebody come and help us. This might not happen all the time, there weren't many people out that day and there wasn't a lot going on, but it's definitely above and beyond what we expected. Mainly because we just paid to use the hills/lifts, and we got a free lesson. Overall I'd say it's a good place to start, and while I'm still not great at snowboarding- I'd definitely go here and try it again.
