Close to Portland, Lots of Snowmaking
Lame terrain, little natural snow, lots of people
This place is a mega intermediate level resort. They try to make some more advanced terrain but they simply don't get enough snow to actually make it any fun. If you like big wide blue groomers then you'll love this place. If you want to tear up some glades or mogul runs you will be disappointed.
Don’t fall into the “grass is always greener” mindset where you always think there will be better skiing or shorter lines at another peak. You will simply spend your whole day on connector lifts and boring connector trails.
The lift lines are always huge but if you split up into the single line then you’ll be through the lines in less than five minutes.
For a day trip this place is not the worst option, however I would never consider this place for a ski vacation or even a long weekend.
