Full review

usually go to chestnut, but decided to shake it up and hit sundown instead and won't be back for a while...Overall the snow was awful ,but this might have to do with the ice storm days earlier. Still, there were a TON of beginners out of control where they shouldn't be. Somehow this place seems to make beginners on rentals think they can hit the black diamonds. Another side effect of the plentiful beginners was frequent stoppage of an already very long lift ride. The intermittent smell of manure blowing in the wind didn't make it any better either.
