Awesome, just awesome! Steeps, short but sweet. Powder runs that go forever. Fantastic grooming. The lift network is a little odd but it will get you where you need to go. The Saddle Mtn lift takes FOREVER but it's worth it and it keeps the powder good for a longer time. Tons of trails that are not on the map, that being said the map is almost worthless but who cares. The lodge is simple and the food is nothing to write home about but you're here for the skiing anyways. We stayed in Wisdom, interesting to say the least. This is not a resort but it is a killer ski area. The lifts are uniformly slow but who cares. The lift ticket is CHEAP!...and our seasons pass from our home hill got us a half day rate for a full day. If you can catch a Thurs. with new snow from Mon, Tues, Weds (they are closed those days) then it will be nirvana. They don't run all the lifts on Thurs and Fri but you can still access most all of the terrain. Go! You will not be disappointed.
