Trails are in pretty bad shape

Full review

From the report, they have a pretty good number of lifts and trails open compared with other ski resorts in the area considering the current weather conditions. The available blue runs were very crowded and by the end of the day they ended up having quite a bit of moguls. They did not bother grooming the black runs, so the moguls over there were humongous. As a consequence, the black runs were almost impossible to ski on. Moreover, they closed one of the better blue runs due to some "race". (Why don't they have these races on weekdays?) Overall, pretty disappointed by the conditions of the trails. The snow was acceptable, but the trails were very poorly maintained, especially the black ones.
