Full review

Spent a really great weekend skiing here on their nice varied terrain on Bald Mountain. Visited several of the lodges for a beer or a meal and really enjoyed the sun-facing side of the mountain, especially the bowl off the top ridge, which has something for the advanced skier all the way down to someone's kids - just perfect. The new gondola is sweet and the service everywhere we went was impeccabel My only issue is how hard it is to get here - Horizon cancels most of the return flights and so the trip takes extra long through Boise! The nightlife in town is fun if often a bit pricey, but then it's a ski resort, not a campground.....
