My family had a great family reunion here in December of 2010. The ski trails are marvelous and well-groomed - with lots of long gradual climbs, and exciting downhill runs. The powder was fantastic that December. It was my third visit to this location, and I've never been disappointed. Our children had a great time skiing and would love to go again. The owners are dog-mushers, so it was fun to see them leaving on their runs early in the morning. They would go in a huge circuit - 90 miles I believe they said - in training for the Iditarod. They are friendly and helpful.
