Nice Snow Conditions, Friendly and Helpful Staff, Good Food, Security Presence
Slowest Chairlifts, Icy Conditions On Blue, New Sidewinder Run Stinks
Went to opening day 12/09/2010 - good remarks. Good mix of real and man made snow. Conditions were exactly as you'd expect it to be being on the east coast in December. Packed snow with ice spots in the center of the runs, especially on the blues. Not too crowded so it was easy getting on the lifts. But those lift......are grandma slow. I don't know why they don't make them as fast as Seven Springs. If the place was packed - with these slow chairlifts...it would be catastrophic. The staff - from the ticket lady to the lift operators were super friendly. Security presence was definitely enhanced at the main entrance which is awesome. The food is always good at Whitetail. Yes pricey, but it's a resorts. I like the new lockers where you can have unlimited access for a fee (for the big lockers - $6 which is a little steep, but if youre going to be in/out of the locker the duration of the day its worth it) One down note was the new "Sidewinder" trail - it totally blows. I was stoked to try out this new run. Yes its an easy green - but dude...after the good first dip you hit major flat lands!!! no joke - i had to unstrap and skate to get to the next drop! In short i really had a great time today - the weather warmed up so it did make the snow a little slushy, but no one has control over that. A great escape for the day on the mountain. This place is good for die hard snowboarders and skiers and familes too.
