Do enjoy skiing or snowboarding? Tired of the big crowds and the craziness of the huge resorts? Then be sure to check out Mt. Waterman next winter for your next ski or snowboarding trip. Mt. Waterman is a smaller ski resort so you won’t have quite as many crowds to fight, plus you’ll find a lot of beautiful runs to enjoy and plenty of natural powder.
With three chair lifts and 27 runs, there is still a lot to enjoy at Mt. Waterman. Sixty percent of the runs are ranked as advanced, but there are still 20 percent beginner and 20 percent intermediate runs, so no matter what your skill level is, you can find a slope to enjoy. Mt. Waterman also does not make snow; it only uses natural snow, hence their slogan “Praying for snow since 1939.”
If you are new to skiing or snowboarding, then check out some of the lessons offered by their nationally certified instructors. From group lessons to private lessons and for children and adults, there are a variety of affordable lessons to help you brush up on your snow-skills.
It is also important to note that Mt. Waterman does not offer rentals, so you’ll want to make sure you bring all your equipment up the hill with you. Though there is a lovely lodge with food and drinks plus a warm fireplace and some stunning views, so you can still find a great spot to relax after your day on the slopes. In fact, for those that aren’t skiers, you can still take the Chair One lift up the hill to enjoy the views at the top of the mountain.
And since you’ll be carrying all your own gear up the hill, then you’ll need the right car for the trip. The GLK350 SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino is just the right choice. With plenty of room for your board, skiis, boots and other gear plus a lot of comfortable space for you and all your guests, it is the perfect way to get to your fun day on the slopes.
