Full review

Went here on a Monday. Place was pretty much dead which was great. No lines. They had a nice snow pack and were also making snow from every spray head on the hill. There were 2 groomers working the entire day, which kept the hill in great shape and really added to the experience. Seemed well run and a nice place for where it is located. Most of the runs were blue-ish. I would not want to tried to learn to ride/ski here. There are just not any good green runs. A good place to blast down the hill and get some exercise for the bigger resorts. I would compare the runs to Afton Alps, but a bit longer and much fewer runs. This isn't a large place by any means, but it is big enough for a few hours of fun. Better than I expected, and pretty cheap.
