Full review

So after reading about this place for a year we finally made it up to check this place out and it was a pleasant surprise !! The snow was excellent , the moguls and glades all had a nice 6 inches of powder on them. We skiid on weds and thurs so there wasn't any wait at any of the lifts and they even had a $20 lift ticket special that lasted the entire week !! You have to hike about a half mile to ski the upper end of the cathedral trail and it is well worth it if it is open(this trail is all natural) !! The only negatives I can think of for this resort is that the internediate trails would be considered beginner trails at most resorts and the beiginner trails are more like baby trails. If you're an advanced skier don't waste your time with anything other than single and double diamond trails and the excellent glades.This is not a party resort, there are very few bars and hotels nearby so it is for the serious skiers only but the conditions are ten times better than Hunter.....THIS PLACE IS A HIDDEN GEM AND I'D DEFINITELY MAKE THE 5 HOUR DRIVE TO SKI IT AGAIN !
