Cute little area for local trip (LA residents). The downtown area is cute with shops and little restaurants to walk around. There is a movie theatre, and of course, a few ski mountains if the conditions are good enough.
We have young kids and opted to hold off on the early ski introduction and spent some quality tiime sledding. Lots of fun. We were lucky enough to get some snow, however, there are some great sledding spots that make snow all winter long that would be great for kids of all ages.
We had a bad experience with respect to the quality of cabin we rented. And overall, there seems to be a lot of older cabins and housing in the area. Make sure to fully investigate your lodgings. Our cabin was defintely not satifactory for a family stay (i.e., with the kids we need have dishwasher and in house laundry for a weeklong stay).
- Pros:Short trip from Los Angeles, man-made snow sledding all winter long
- Cons:Crowds on weekends and during natural snow fall
- In a nutshell:Good Little Trip for Young Kids - Beware of Old Cabins
