Lots of runs you can get on - not boring
wishing for a little more verticle

Full review

Visited on a Saturday, the hill was in amazing shape. The groomers did an excellent job of getting the hill ready but there are still some nice spots where the groomers leave the snow alone so it gets some bumps and challenge to the ski terrain. There were a lot of skiers but the lift lines were never long, I would like to see the lifts that service the harder terrain move a bit quicker. The hill has quite a few runs, so skiing from one side of the mountain to the other affords a good skier the opportunity to keep things interesting instead of going down a few of the same runs repeatedly. I wished for a little more veritcle, which of course you can't do anything about so its not really a con, it just shows how little there is to pick on here. Food prices are reasonable, in line with other hills of similar size, and quality and quatity are good as well, no complaints there at all. Staff was very helpful and polite, even going with a group of 35 kids they were easy to work with and prepared for us on our arrival, so kudos for outstanding guest service. Overall, a very good hill that will bring me back.
