I was really surprised with how good creek really is. Before going I was really worried because all of the reviews were horrible and the mountain had a bad rep but it wasnt so bad after all. I went today and it was opening day and the conditions were fine, alittle bit of ice on one part of a trail, full coverage on open trails, and it wasn't to packed. I skiied on South and found the lodge great, nice and small with yet a good amount of room. Even though not alot of terrain was open it was a great day of skiing.
