Vlasic ski resort

 

Night skiing is offered three times a week. There is also a rental facility for ski and snowboarding equipment here. The resort may be quite crowded at times and jostling for space is quite common.  Avoiding weekends at this ski resort is a good idea.

This is a privately owned resort and the owners do try to keep it maintained and trouble free. However, this resort caters to the beginners and would prefer that the advanced or expert skiers go over to the larger resorts.
