We brought a group of 30 seniors on a "Bucket List" trip to have sleigh rides in March. They had a fabulous time. The staff was extremely professional and helpful. Ana, Andrew & Brie (and others) were great in organizing this trip. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
The activities there including horse-riding, sledding, cross-country skiing, and dog-sledding, were very fun and it was a great way to spend a couple of days. The cabin that we were in was nice in cozy although the fire (for whatever reason) did not heat up the cabin AT ALL. That was kinda weird but still. Also, the wifi was TERRIBLE but we were in the mountains so it was fine. Lastly, it's really close to WinterPark so it's pretty great.
