Grandeco Snow Resort review by MO
Went skiing with the kid, and had a blast.

Great weather both days helped. When the kid gets past beginner-intermediate we may want a more difficult course selection, but for now the range was good enough to both amuse me and challenge the kid. The "attractions" (parks, jumps, banked turns) were great fun for both of us. I particularly appreciated the long tree runs. The kid liked the jumps. No lift lines, mellow atmosphere. All in all a great family resort.

Very little ice, even on the steepest slopes.
Date visited: From 30 March, 2009 To 31 March, 2009
Snow condition on visit: Plentiful, firm, some powder
Things I liked: Great views, long runs, fun attractions
Things I didn't like: Would be nice to have one lift from bottom to top
