    Pros: not as crowded as the big mtns

    Cons: rental system could use more organization, slow ski lifts

Only did greens. Probably the best place to self-learn. Has wide greens and less crowds than the other big mtns. Did not see any unruly boarders, and the wide "lanes" probably account for that. You feel like you're going down a mountain forest that just got snowed on, as opposed to other mtns that just seem groomed to be a ski mtn. The skiable acreage seems larger than its modest reputation and i would go back more often to do the blues, if it were not a ~3 hr drive from my nj home. The only problem is a narrow lift start area in the greens and the lifts are a slow ride. The rental system could use tweaking, though they give you a "customized" fit with every rental.
