    Spring is a good place for beginners. I taught several people how to snowboard there, and the wide beginners slope serves new riders well. A solid intermediate or above can be entertained for a couple hours if the diamond slopes are open. I was never impressed with the park. If you go on a crowded night or weekend you may have to park and take a bus to the lodge, as the over flow lot is separated from the lodge and the main lot.

    My friend and I went snow tubing. It was a mild evening, but was very icy and dangerous at the bottom of the run. People were getting hurt left and right, some going to the hospital. Also, after your run you had to go down some steps to walk around and get in line again. There was a significant drop from the last step to the ground, and it was not only sloped but icy and very dangerous. They offer a 4 hour evening session from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. My friend and I got there at 7 p.m., only did 3 runs and both got hurt. We went to speak with the owner and he was very unsympathetic and not helpful at all, making excuses all the while. We basically wasted our money. There’s also a sign up when you come in to pay that says if they have 200 people during a session, you may only get one run an hour.
