Full review

My trip here was instantly amazing. It was a beautiful day with nice snow. I thought at first this was going to be my favorite mountain. We went up and did these amazing blues with awesome views. Great downhill and really nice snow. It was going great until they decided to shut down the lifts at like 12:00. They said the top of the mountain was too windy and too dangerous. We thought ok the top is a little advanced we wont miss out on much. Then as the day went by and the sun started to disapear they started closing down every lift in the middle of the mountain!! I mean come on! Then it started raining and we tried to go back and forth to different parts only to get turned down saying the lifts were closed. Then we ended up skiing one part of the mountain which was purely a green. Im not letting this experience affect my rating too much but I just want to warn you that if it is a little windy you might want to call it off and not spend 110$ for 2 hours of actual skiing.
