we rode bittersweet last year, and my 2 boys (ages 6 and 8)loved it. perfect sized hill for us. bought my oldest boy a snowboard and this was his first time. he did very well, soon enough he will linking turns and hitting jumps. the nice thing about bittersweet is that it is only 2 hours from me in windsor, ontario. the pricing is very reasonable as well. the terrain park was fun, i am just a beginner in this area, can hit a 50/50 fs, and do a fs 180 fairly consistently. thats about all i have in my basic bag of tricks. still learning and loving every minute of it.
