Full review

Really enjoyed skiing here last season.
Went up on Saturday Jan 2, 2010 for first time this season with a couple friends.

The cold really made the lift lines and stops while going up the lift lines seem really long.

The mountain is seperated into two halves keeps the beginners out of the way of the intermidate skiers. Didn't see any colisions here as on other mountains.
Very top face of the mountain turned icy later in the day due to the blistering wind and amount of skiers.
Super Chief lines were way too long as lift 7 was not operating.

Biggest con was as you wait in line your progress is stopped as more and more people go into the ski school line which doesn't alternate with the main cattle they take preference so the main line doesn't move at all while the school line goes to the top and returns while you are still in the line.

The best side of the mountain is served by the tomahawk lift which when we made it over there didn't have much of a line, 4 main runs off of this 2 of which were very icy but the other 2 were very enjoyable.

Two lodges one in the middle of the slopes and one at the base provided plenty of room.
