Full review

I went in mid January on a Wednesday so it was pretty desolate. It was also bitterly cold with a pretty gusty wind so most of my friends didn't last too long. On the day that we went, the conditions weren't ideal for beginners, the trails were very hard packed, not quite icy but not ideal for a beginner. However, they were making snow at the top of the mountain with one snow maker. Also since we were there in the afternoon, the sun was setting and the whole mountain had a shadow casted over it so it was really hard to see the terrain, it was really had to tell if the trail was going to be steep or flatten out. The park is pretty decent more for intermediates. Big features for jibbing. Overall I had an enjoyable time, but next time I go I'm going to check that wind chill.
