Full review

We stayed for 2 days, and were overall very impressed with the skiing and lodging. First and foremost, the skiing was very good! The runs were challenging and fun. I snowboarded the first day, and the terrain park was pretty good. The runs were nicely lit at night, which made the terrain inviting. I skiied the second day and the blue and black runs were very fun and challenging. Pros: Great skiing for beginners, intermediate, or black diamond pro's!, free shuttle from the lodge to the mountain, nice friendly staff; flat panel TV in the lodge, and hot tub!; good food at the on-mountain restaurant. Cons: bathrooms need some updating with more powerful toilets that actually flush; snow was too packed, could have been better groomed; The mountain closed at 4pm on Sunday which was disappointing; The lodge could have used a queen or King bed, instead of the small twin; hot tub wreaked of too much chlorine, and was unbearable for more than a couple minutes;
