Full review

I went on the last day of a what felt like a week-long snow storm in the Sierras. It was supposed to clear up, but it didn't and snowed the whole day. But, because of all the fresh snow, the whole resort was filled with powder. The sections that were packed was awsome. But some areas weren't packed, and the powder was probaly 4-5 feet deep. Falling in those areas resulted in some tough crawling out. There's limited parking close to the lifts. So, there's a lot of walking before I could enjoy the slopes. More signs indicating where to go after parking would be nice too.
