Full review

I always like boarding here. No crowds, good snow, and really fun terrain, especially in Mirkwood. Like many of the smaller resorts, the lifts are slow, but there are seldom lines. Only one draw-back: never leave your gear unattended! I had a board stolen here in 2006 and have since learned that theft is a huge problem. The Sheriff said there's a gang that has been stealing gear here for years and they have yet to catch them. Buy a cheap cable lock and use it! They only go for easy marks, so be sure you aren't one.
