this used to be a perfect cheap small hill to teach local kids. The new lodge is beautiful but now it costs $39 for a small hill with 1 chair and less than 100' vertical.

So many people today and snowing and slight wind. Great skiing but expensive tickets and a few lifts not working causing long lines.

I was there on Friday and the runs were nice and they were all open. It wasn't too crowded so it was an ideal warmup for PC.  The terrain run is easily DH's best run.

Nice location and small venue. The chalet was great. Skiing in 40 degree weather was the best. Not too busy.

Most of the snow was relatively packed but there was also some loose stuff... Only running 2 lifts but still got through quickly, especially once it got dark. Even though it was extremely cold, we Had a blast.
