I've watched this mountain grow from two T-bars and a rope tow to one of the 10 busiest resorts in the Northeast. It's small but well run, with enough interesting terrain to keep people coming back. Conifer Connection is a good intermediate trail; Smith-Walton has the steepest pitch on the hill; both should be a lot longer, but they're not. The snowmaking and grooming is as good as any I've seen; it's their bread-and-butter. The lodge is friendly. Even on weekends, the first two hours offer uncrowded skiing on welll-groomed trails. Ski 'til the liftlines build up, head inside and drink a cocoa by the fire. Night skiing is big, but can be cold. (I learned to ski here, at night, and it took some getting used to daylight and warmer temps.)
