Väike Munamäe was a surprisingly fun place to snowboard. They had a combined ticket system with Kuutsemäe, so it filled up the whole weekend and we did not get bored just riding the same slopes at one place all day.
Munakas had three slopes open at the weekend we were visiting. Two front slopes had anchor lifts and one a bit more difficult slope had the button lift. Lifts were considerably quick - during the day, it was very rare that I needed to stand in a que to wait for my turn. Most of the time it was possible to just ride down to the lift and be the next one to hop on. That´s just perfect (because in Kuutsemäe there were very long ques)! There also ropes for snowboarders that make it easier get to the lift.
Also, if you go to the more difficult track (the one with button lift), be sure you can handle it. If you fall at the lift and lose your "button" you cannot get back on the slope because of the forest and you need to have good skills to get down to the starting point (directly down, using the same narrow and rather steep lane while other skiers are coming up with the lift). My 10-year old skiing companion had a very hard time to get back on track after a little falling on the button lift and that was almost impossible to go back there to help him. So, do not fall there :)
The slopes however were in very good condition and it is great new place to go for skiing or snowboarding. Will go back again.
