I went on a week day earlier in january and the lift ticket was 15 bones, so that was nice. It was a beautiful sunny day and it had snowed 6 inches the night before, so take all that into account. I am a snowboarder, and didn't see any of that animosity that some others have mentioned. It isn't the greatest resort in the world but it is comparable to Windham or Hunter, just not as many amenities, which suits this rider just fine. I found the views from the top to be the best of any place in the catskills. If it is a nice day, and the snow is decent, you should have a good experience, factor in the price and I would recommend you check it out.
