Full review

In the previous week the mountain had gotten over a foot of snow so the ground conditions were excellent and there was still some leftover powder that you could find. I had a blast riding that day.

Only con that I have is there is essentially one good lift, the high speed 6 seater. If you are an intermediate or higher rider you only have a choice of the high speed or the triple chair which is painfully slow, probably 3 times as slow. There are a couple minor and surface lifts but essentially if you wanted to spend your time well you only had one option. There was a good number of people there and a few to 5 min wait for the high speed which isn't too bad, but at one point in the afternoon there was some mechanical trouble with the lift and it stopped for about 20 min, by the time it got resolved the wait was very long. If the high speed was to breakdown, the triple chair can not handle the number of people who were there. They should put in another high speed in place of the triple or make it faster, because it was slower than most other chairs that I've been on.

Overall really fun experience. I would recommend it for friends to go.
