School ski bus...the numbers are down...imo due to economy...4-5 years ago we were taking 5-6 bus loads of kids this year 2 bus loads. The past 2 years there have been more skiers but this year there are more boarders on the buses. The little hill has had more tourist the past 2 years (perhaps due to bad snow years in other parts) but the number of pass holders are down (due to economy). The daily lift rate only rose slightly but generally considered a bargain compared to other hills. And this past saturday, the enitre afternoon, was helping/coaching a skier kid right off the bunny hill down his first black runs...he did great.
