Full review

Really not a bad mountain for being in MA. For me I go there often due to it being the closest mountain for me to ride. About an 1 hour and 15 min away. Its a good mountain to take friends that are just learning, a very good mountain to build confidence on and get comftable. Here are some keys to enjoying this mountain. During the week 9am to 3pm its usually pretty dead and your able to have the mountain to yourself without any lift lines. At about 3:30 pm kids start to roll in like a heard. The place pretty much turns into a mall on a friday night, its pretty bad. Weekends after Christmas get really packed and lift lines are pretty long. The night riding is pretty good because they have just about the whole mountain lit up with very good lighting. After about 8pm the place turns into a ghost town and you'll have the whole place to your self till 10pm. Its not a very challenging mountain at all. I have to also say that the staff that works the lift lines are extreamly rude!!!! I'm sure some of this is due to them having to deal with all the kids and teens that take over the whole mountain. Tickets are expensive for such a small mountain. And they don't make as much snow as they should, when things get very icy the really don't try to fresh up the trails at all. To put it in a nut shell if this resort wasn't the nearest for me to go I would never really go there!!! On a powder day when its dumping out and everyone is affraid to drive in the snow the place is pretty quiet and very fun. They do groom twice a day which is a positive.
