Full review

My first review of MM was not glowing, but I thought maybe I was there at the wrong time of the year and that was correct. This time the snow was super and grooming took place during the day after racers were on the mountain to ensure recreational skiers were not navigating the ruts the racers left behind. Overall a very detailed approach to keeping the mountain skiable during the day. Lots of opportunity for skiers to take bumps if you like them, but I did get caught on the mogul run with no way out (and I confess I'm not a bump person) so that can be kind of demanding for people who hit that run by accident - please MM give us a way out when we don't get it right. Otherwise, food was good, very busy but lift lines kept moving right along, prices are very reasonable and grooming was top drawer. I will be back.
