Full review

We were pleasantly suprised with this mountain. It is much closer than VT and the trails are well maintained with good snow. In fact, in the am I thought I was skiing snow from out West. The runs are shorter than VT but the blacks are pretty steep and the mogul runs are steep and tight. The lodge was decent. They have a big restaurant and bar in the back to get away from the kids. No crowd to speak of during the weekday but the lifts are painfully slow and all but one are two seaters. That is the only drawback for a day of quality skiing in Pa.
