Full review

Recently been on each of the three mountains in one day entertaining my brother in law. Found some great runs on each mtn. and was easy to find our way around. maximum lift line wait on presidents weekend (Saturday with most hotels at capacity) was about 4 minutes. Snow was decent, stayed on mostly groomed runs. At night did the sleigh ride, could be a bit longer. Went tubing and recommend going after a couple of days without snow to get the speed of the tube park up. Went skating on the outdoor rink with rental skates...good fun and in pretty good shape. Went snow shoe golfing the other day as well, great fun and a real laugh but don't expect to work on your game, the key to hit soft with a good folow through. Great way to spend an afternoon relaxing in the outdoors.
