Full review

I skied the week of Feb 9 - 14. There had been no new snow for a month, so the first day was nasty mid-Atlantic hard pack. Then we got 2.5 feet over the next 5 days, which improved things ten-fold, but it was heavy snow. Peak Express rarely ran which cut off the stuff I wanted to ski (trees). Needs lots of base to cover all the rocks. Long lift lines, even mid-week. Fresh snow tracked out by 9:30am. Lots of fog/flat light. Many closed lifts that accessed the good stuff higher up. Seemed like I spent way too much time riding lifts trying to avoid crowds or find something decent to ski. Food in the village was nothing special. Not a bad resort, but it didn't live up to the hype. I won't be back.
