Was a scenic drive leading up to Afriski, tried out skiing for the first time, it's really difficult but the beginners lessons provided were helpful and the facilities were great.

The stay was great no complains. only that if someone books for a stay and there is an event on that weekend, please inform the person because the event affects activities in the area.

Food and accommodation were excellent.. The country side was like being in a different world altogether. A good rest from the demands of city life.

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.
