For children, I would highly recommend Afriski (with their all inclusive kiddie packages). My kids (ages 8 and 11) will tell you that they have never had so much fun in their lives. It was great fun to watch.

You can make it in a 2x4 comfortably as long as there is no snow on road. Check the Afriski website for road condition updates or call their reception directly and they'll help

The main slope is only at 200m at the moment but the slope is being expanded but without natural snow fall it is taking longer than last year. Still we had a great time this last week.
