Lifetime Southern Californians, we arrived Presidents day with out of town guests to find hardly any snow. Because they make snow and it gets cold at night, you can snow play here for much longer than regular snow play (free) areas. The lift to the...More

My family has been to this place many times! It usually opens in the beginning of November and is open the whole winter season. Very fun and not as expensive as the ski resorts.

We have brought our kids up here for day trips many, many times. This place is always fun and the lines are not too long. The kids always want to come back (it's fun for the adults too!

We missed the majority of the snow- snow play area was nearly gone and they charged $35 per person. Wasn't worth it. Possibly drop the price to $20 so parents/kids don't feel ripped off. Tubes would hardly slide down. Totally bummed and ripped off :(-

Went there today with a family of five and cost me 150 dollars. The tubes are so bad you can only get down to the midway point of the run. Highly disappointed, especially for how expensive it costs there.
