Breathtaking views, mostly great terrain, HUGE mountain, EpicMIX!
Cliffs can kill you, pricey food, flat catwalks

Full review

I love this place; however, it just feels dangerous to be snowboarding on this mountain that has no rails and just looks like you could fall to your death. That really bothers me. Also I paid almost five dollars for a bottle of gatorade and eight something for a slice of frozen pizza. (criminal) The downhill terrain is amazing however the flat parts on some of the runs that call for ski poles absolutely suck for snowboarders (myself included). The view was one of the most beautiful sights that I have ever seen. The mountains and the lake are literally picture perfect. This place is a glorious reminder that God is an artist. OVERALL: this place is amazing but it is better for skiers that it is for snowboarders. A healthy fear of death may discourage you but if you stay away from the edges you should be fine. Heavenly indeed.
