Took our kids there for their first time ever skiing - ages 12 and 10. It was also our first time in 14 years. The mountain is small and easy to navigate. We were there on Dec 26th, supposedly the busiest day of the year. It was mainly empty. There was never a lift line - and only on the beginners conveyor belt was there every a wait - and then maybe 10 minutes max. There are no experts here - just beginners. The longest run is maybe a 5 minute lift - and 30 second ride. There are a lot of 3 to 8 year olds, some excellent skiiers - gong on the black diamonds. Our son was skiing their "advanced" runs by his second day. It's a lot of skiing - short runs, but frequent with the short lift lines. Boone is very close - our Fairfield Marriott was a 12 minute, 6 mile drive. The only downside is - people are falling everywhere (lots of beginners) and the ski school was horrible. We had both a group and private lesson for our daughter - and both were lame. But she learned on her own. Unfortunately, they don't teach you to ski...so the time is wasted. Overall, glad we sent.
