beginners
****
gentle nursery slopes can be found near the Quicksilver lift or the the base of the Peak. Many lower slopes are virtually flat. there is an abundance of green and blue runs. all the beginner terrain is dotted with widely spaced trees. Half of Peak 9 is for beginners, with enforced slow-ski zones.

*****
take the high speed Beaver Run chairlift and navigate the Peak 9. From the top, you have the choice of four ski areas, offering an abundance of reds and further down, blues.
advanced 
*****
have a go at the black 'pyschopath' or the 'boneyard' in the bowls of Peak 8 and Peak 7. head for the Ten Mile Range of Peaks 8, 9 & 10, with moguls and double diamond black runs - the possibilities seem endless!
