We've been here a few times. It's a fun place to take the kids if you go at the right time. A few things to know before going: weekends are really crowded. The sled area is somewhat chaotic when it gets busy. There is no rope tow. You'll need to bring your own food. You'll need to bring your own sled.

I love this place. It's great for kids and families. Everyone is super friendly. If you want great snow and lots of vertical, this is not your place. If you want a place where your kids can learn without breaking the bank then this IS the place to come. It's so close to Chelan. Very convenient.
