    Better stick to mid-week

    by JMFERR - 31st January 2011

    Pros: Many off chute trails, lots of ski patrol at the top

    Cons: Wicked long lift lines that move way slow

    Great snow, great learning area, not too far away.

    by Three2Ski - 19th February 2010

    Pros: Quality snow, very good grooming, good variety

    Cons: Lodge is very nice, but often way too overcrowded

    I'd rather take my money to Gunstock

    by thesnowboarder - 16th February 2010

    Pros: Many lifts, terrain for everybody, Good views

    Cons: Too spread out for me, icy, windy, slow lifts, crowded, no way out from sunbowl

    I went here. Mistake. Crowded, crowds mean beginners going down trails too difficult for them, which leads to sliding down the whole thing, which leads to i... Full review
