Full review

They totally lie about the amount of snow they get. We went there 2 years in a row from Banff because they were boasting a 130cm base...we were skiing on grass and mud once and the next time the snow was so hard packed that it was obvious they hadn't received snow in days yet the website said they just had 15 cm overnight! The time we skiied on mud our whole group said that if they didn't get snow in the next day or so, they might have to close the hill....but according to their website they had 130cm base????? I'd like to know where they got that measurement from!!! Skiing is already too $$$ to be lied to just to get you there. The terrain is expert level with little for the beginner or novice. The green cat track leading from the top is not what I would call a green run...especially when you have to take on some serious pitches at the top just to get onto the run.
