Visitor Reviews of Mount Cheeseman

Catherine Kircher from New Zealand writes:

I have called myself a skier pretty much since I was able to walk, and I have found Mt Cheeseman a great ski hill to ski at throughout all my years on skis. The ski hill is a big bowl with lots of variation throughout it so even though it does not boast the most vertical of any ski hill, every run is different. After 25 years skiing there I am still finding new lines to excite me. And for some reason it often gets much better quality snow than other fields in the surrounding ranges, so that is an extra bonus.

The people are super friendly and I find at Cheesean I feel I am more than a guest, kind of part of a family. And that feeling of being at home is half the reason why I keep coming back. I know I can turn up there on my own but always find someone I know or don't to ski with.

I have skiied at some of the biggest name ski hills in the world but I still find Cheeseman a great place to ski. It offers a relaxed, friendly skiing experience, regardless of your ability, and I will be coming back for more skiing as long as I am able.
