Shanty Creek

  Good ski hill, I go there a lot with my buddies. There are a lot of other ski hills around here but we keep going back to this one, the other ones are good too we just feel home at this one I suppose. Says Brian.

    that much to brag about, but Shanty Creek makes up for it by other means. Shanty Creek has an average percentage of expert and advanced ski trails and an average ratio of green and blue runs. Shanty Creek has the biggest elevation
difference among ski hills in a 21 mile radius. This ski resort has 10 ski lifts, and they are in tremendous condition.
