Overall we had a pretty good time at the resort. The snow is good, the resort is pretty small so there were no lines at the lifts even on President's day weekend. Unfortunately, I think lift #1 is not designed properly. There's a wooden closet to the left of the loading area, so if you turn your skis to the left while sitting down, you run a chance of catching the ski or boot on this closet. I ended up almost falling off the lift and hurting my ankle, and later noticed that the wood on the corner of the closet closest to the lift is severely damaged, so I wasn't the first or last one to have my skis caught on it. The rest of the lifts don't have this problem.
It was great that the resort had an option to purchase beginner tickets with a $5 discount. Unless you are planning on going down any of the black diamond hills, the beginner ticket is all you need.
