Full review

The area is huge, but so much of it is so flat you almost need a snowmobile to tow you. Very few groomed runs (2 was all I found) with enough slope for good cruising. They claim to groom more area than most ski areas have in total. Problem is, most of the groomed area has no appreciable slope. They have plenty of mogel runs (I don't do mogels) which, if groomed, would make good cruising runs. Absent that, I'll ski somewhere else with better terrain and a lot less money.
