The scenery was gorgeous in the fall. The resort is picturesque and quaint with lots of fun things to do. Our kids really enjoyed the alpine slide. Actually, us parents really liked it too!

Thank you for sharing your feedback, the Alpine Slide is advised to be used with caution like many action attractions. Each guest is responsible for their own speed, and if a guest isn't in full control of their sled there is a risk that you...More

While many seek the highly packed trails, this gem is worth digging up. Hiked over 8 miles and didn't leave the property. Views are incredible. Also, great places to unwind after your hike.
