My son and I skied here twice during a short holiday in Glenwood. It's hard to beat the price. It's 65 for adults and 45 for kids under 12. The terrain was surprisingly carried with great groomed greens and blues mixed in with good tree...More

Pros: Plenty of runs, all colors. I like greens and there was plenty to choose from. My kids like harder runs and they were thrilled as well. I tried one blue and it seemed like a black to me - kids confirmed that the blues...More

Yes! Just bring your outter wear and all else is rentable! Take your swimsuit for the hot springs at Glenwood. A must after skiing.
