Full review

This is a great area for families and skiers who are looking for good, but not extreme terrain. The lifts work just fine, despite reports to the contrary. Two of the three backside lifts are slow, but that keeps the runs uncrowded and there are no lines except at the base in early morning. Most days the wait is one minute or less once the morning crowd gets going. Snow this year just got fantastic, multiple feet prior to Christmas! They really try to be a family resort and mostly succeed. The new Lodge is very nice, but management is still trying to figure out how to make things work smoothly. Give them a break, they are new at the "World Class Service" thing. If you overlook the small kinks, you will have a really great ski vacation here.
