Friendly staff, good snow coverage, no lines
Crotched is a smaller mountain, but has a good variety of terrain. The lifts are slow but I have never waited more than a couple minutes in line, even when they are busy. The lodge is quite large and has an adult beverage section for those wanting to get away from the kids. And kids will be there! Crotched has good instructors and a lot of kids go there to learn skiing/snowboarding. It can be a problem on the beginner trails as they tend to bunch up, slow down and take breaks. The terrain park is big and has gotten bigger since last year with some very large jumps for the competitions held there. This is a great place for snowboarders with two different terrain parks. If you like to get air, this is a good choice. Crotched is reasonably priced and offers great deals for groups. This is a family friendly place and overall it is a very enjoyable day and well worth the money.
