I agree with all the previous reviews. Just had a great first day at 10e. The mountain was a pleasant surprise. Everyone we spoke with was great and had a huge smile when we told them it was our first day.
Do not be fooled or lulled into thinking that this is a light weight challenge. There is only one green on the main mountain. The blues and blacks, compared to other mountains are well rated.
The trail terrain has bends and curves you would not expect from a smaller hill. The "Forget Me Not" trail is well named. The run we took on this un-groomed trail was the equal and then some to the diamond trails on bigger mountains further up the road.
No lines on a Saturday in January. On more than one run, we skied right to the load line without stopping. There are only two lifts, but they provide more than adequate access to the mountain. The snow surface was great.
Check it, you will be surprised. But don't tell too many people!
