WE LIKE

  • Bald Mountain is great for experts and snowboarders while Dollar Mountain is a beginners dream. Suits all abilities.
  • Awesome scenery to enjoy. Plus comfortable temperatures. Amazing mountain restaurants.
  • This resort is all about laid back comfort or 'roughing it in style', great if you are tired of the concrete, purpose built resorts found elsewhere.

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Beginners really shouldn't ski Bald Mountain despite the green gradings on runs. So for mixed groups you will need to split up.
  • The low key atmosphere may not be to everyones liking.
  • Apres ski is relaxed and refined, this is not a wild boozy scene.
