Great fun!

Excellent ski lesson from Mitchell. Bit of a wait for the lifts but a really good experience overall. Don't forget to wrap up warm. Gloves and clothing available to hire.

We often visit here with grandchildren as such fun watching drivers, snow boarders etc hurtling towards you & coming down huge artificial mountain of snow. However, we were very disappointed with the food in cafe/restaurant there this last time. Tables weren't wiped & cleaned properly between customers, even when asked repeatedly.

I spent a lot of time practicing snowboard here. Course is quite short but plenty if you're practicing for the mountains. Great for day trip.

Have been a few times now and it never gets old. If your brave enough to go to the top (how could you not) it looks a lot steeper than it is but once your on your way down its nothing but childish fun again. Great anytime
