Full review

my friends and i went to snow summit and had the best time. all the runs - green, blue and black were pretty long rides, well groomed, lots of room to ride around. the terrain park wasn't bad, just too many borders sitting in everyone's way and too many people trying the tricks when they shouldnt be even in the park. i understand the only way to learn is to just try it- but seriously - if you cant even ride a green w/o having difficulty you really should stay out of the park - mainly for safety reasons. i saw this noob bite it hard on a rail and he took out 3 guys that were sitting too close to the landing. yea - they got hurt. the blues are nice to warm up to. the front black was sick. super fast and spacious. the food prices blow. resorts have the monopoly on chow and drinks- be prepared to shovel out a lot of cash for your hunger pains while at the resort. parking was decent - they had parking attendants pointing cars into spots so no one wasted the room. good call. oh yea - def def def try to leave before dark - the ride back down the mountain SUCKS!!! its wicked dark with no street lights anywhere and actually pretty scary - no real place to stop for gas for long stretches at a time w/o any other cars around you for miles at a time - this ride is over 30 miles long at maybe 35 miles an hour. be sure to gas up and have essentials for a car breakdown just in case for peace of mind. yea, i dont recommend anyone riding solo. beyond all that - snow summit is a fantastic place to spend your day skiing or boarding. totally recommended.
