Full review

For a place so close to Reno (30 mins) it is really fun.
There are quite a few trails and combining them is easy due to how they run near one another.
It's easy to basically pick a new route each time down.
The conditions over the weekend that (Feb 13-16th) I went was amazing. So much powder and so easy to find areas that were fresh.
Unfortunately, we got stuck in the parking lot and had a hell of a time getting out due to the fact that they don't plow the lot to help cars get out. (Actually only a few places that I know of do).
There's alot of nice long runs here as well. Which is good since all but one of the lifts are VERY slow
