Magic is known for its laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere. Its classic centralized base lodge and lift system gives it a small mountain feel despite over 1700 vertical feet. Families can relax and enjoy skiing and riding without worrying about kids getting lost, and family members of different skiing ability can ski different trails down yet meet back at the same lift for the ride up together. And on MLK weekend Magic takes up the fun level with the tubing park open for extended hours from 11am to 7pm on both Saturday and Sunday so kids can keep on playing after skiing right at the base area while Mom and Dad relax at the Black Line Tavern. The BLT will have great après ski music, food and beverages for the whole family on both afternoons–with dinner available even after the Snow Tube Park closes at 7pm.
