Full review

i went to wisp when it was ridiculously cold (MINUS 17) at the base in the morning. it warmed up fairly well. i found a few nice runs and enjoyed the freshies. but, this is a review.
i was an instructor for snowboarding for one winter at a mountain in vermont. i had 95 days on mountain that year. i consider myself a good advanced rider. i assess a mountain based on terrain, as you can make your own apres ski if you like, bring your own food, and find your way around the traffic.
this mountain's terrain will get a two, not to be ugly. elk mountain in pennsylvania is a three. much better terrain on that mountain. hunter in ny and sugarbush and jaypeak in vermont get fours. i leave five for mountains like whistler and t-ride (been to neither). they are the standards, and have the extreme terrain.
this is a great mountain for kids to learn on, and to get them ready for mountains such as hunter and jay. only one or two steep trails. if it gets dumped on and no one else gets it north and east of it, would definitely come again.
don't remember a terrain park, and i would have avoided it --> 3
