Recently did this program and enjoyed it greatly. I'm a rank beginner at skiing, and enjoyed the venues and the opportunity to learn alongside other newbies. The accommodations are spartan but adequate, the food hearty and plentiful. The rating of "Moderately Challenging" is accurate--I was very tired each night since we were on the go pretty much all day every day (although, as they remind you on day one, everything is optional). The planetarium is not to be missed, and Dave's presentations were excellent.

If you enjoy real winter activities set in a primal, Northwoods setting, try this program. I have done it three times and have enjoyed each experience.

Just got back from a fun, helpful , beautiful experience. The instructors are so helpful and accommodate all levels of ability and the sites we go to are incredible. I've done this 3 times now and will probably go back again. Well organized.

This was my eighth year straight in attendence. It is always excellent in terms of going to different places and having excellent, enthusiatic instructors. They always are concerned and accomodating to various skill levels.
