Full review

Went several times this season...great snow, nice staff, lots of terrain. Plenty of decent hotels nearby. We loved the long trails, beautiful views from the top, and apres ski in the village. I'm still learning to ski, and the bevvy of long green runs was great to help prepare for their blue runs. Ridge run is looooong and lovely with it's wide area to allow for the crowds. Parking is expensive at the village, so park at one of the other lodges. The mountain was quite crowded on most weekends, which has it's challenges. Skyline trail is practically uphill and very long to get to the Nevada side. Most snowboarders needed to walk, and those of us on skis had quite the trek. My biggest pet peeve is the trail markings. You can ski a bit before you know what run you're on. All in all, we love this place. The crowds were worth the long runs, and you could spend a week there without running out of terrain.
