Full review

Went skiing Jan 7-8th. Foggy conditions both days led to condensation on ski goggles, completely obscuring one's view of the hill on the top third of the hill. Keep two or three goggle cloths handy, you'll need them every 30 seconds. There are some decent GS and glade runs. Stayed at hillside lodge, awakened both days by beep-beep-beep of the snow ploughs backing up at 4:30 a.m. Lift tickets are over-priced, it rained the entire afternoon of the 2nd day. If you're on the Island already, it's the only game in town, but for everyone else, my advice is: unless you have $500 to blow, don't bother, it's too far and too costly for a mountain that's average at best.
