Place is not that great. If you get an awesome year like this year, sure it's just like any of the other resorts, and the lack of lift lines, short drive and the much much less traffic hassle are great. But it doesn't always get huge amounts of snow, and then the place gets pretty windy and tends to blow off fresh snow, so if you don't get out soon after a snow storm, new snow can get blown away. High winds even shut the place down for hours. And it can get affected by warm temperatures more easily than other places, icing up the snow and ruining it. Last year supposedly had great snowfall to start to the ski season, but then the mountain was barely 100 percent open all season, with lots of crappy/rocky terrain. So unless you're saving a lot of money and hassle going here or you're just beginning and any slope will do, then I think I'd think twice about going here.
