For all the negatives, there a lot of positives. this year was a great one. good snow and lots of it.
people say the lines are bad, i have never waited more than 10 minutes. get over it. maybe on a bad
day when they had to close some lifts because of high winds. but thats the only time you would have to
wait more than 10 minutes, except the bunny hill. But thats because it stops every 2 minutes because
someone falls off. The skiing is what it is, its jersey skiing. always gonna have some ice because of the
weather and boarders, they really scrape the surface up. but i would rather be here than camelback any day.
you get 3 mountains of skiing with diff. terrain on all. I think the resort did an excellence job getting the mountain
open early this year and keeping it groomed pretty good most of the time. And the season pass is very cheap
or the triple play is an awsome deal. Look now, crappy weather and they are 100% open. weather plays a huge
part in the condition of the mountains. just got back from Vermont, 2 days of decent conditions for V, but still a bit icy,
then we got 16" on last day, that was great. I hope the new lodge is as good as the advertisement. It will be a welcome change from the smelly white bubbles. going skiing this weekend at the creek, spring conditions
will be good. Enjoy.
