Full review

We were treated to some of the legendary lake effect snow New Years Day which made for pretty good conditions overall. One of the steepest runs (via T-Bar, Crazy Horse?) was already scraped off with exposed dirt and roots. So apparently they need a lot more snow to cover some of the steeper runs safely. We did not experience lift lines and the chairs did not stop frequently. I thought it was pretty easy to navigate around the whole mountain to explore all the terrain and "mix it up".... as long as you don't mind T-bars to access the far left and right sides of the hill. Its a real nice Midwest Ski resort, there is a enough terrain here for any level of skier.
