Full review

Solitude is my love. Lesser known, teeming with misfits that just seem to fit, and alive with powder enthusiasts chomping at the bit to eat up untracked lines, and believe you me, there's plenty of little stashes to be had. The hiking access is ideal for those in search of added pleasure and a little extra workout. Slow lifts hardly dampen my mood or love for the seemingly endless lines that one can carve up if they're so inclined to put forth the work. This odd little resort is akin to that crazy aunt that's oodles of fun even though she's somewhat quirky and eccentric.
