Terrain here is very good and the views are great. As it's a volcanic peak it's beautiful and has very good steeps.
The lift lines here are the worst, anywhere. Forest service won't allow changes in lift service so even on snowy days the lift lines are long and slow. Look at the mountain from below. If you can see snow blowing off the peak it's a nasty windy day.
I skied this mountain dozens of times in the last century but rarely go there anymore due to the 20+ minute lift lines.
Note to USFS; ALLOW HIGH SPEED LIFT, to be built. The controversy on allowing snow making, finally won, was just the first step to better lifts.
