Full review

Catamount could be so much better than it is. It has a great amount of trails and diversity that could satisfy anyone used to surrounding mountains. It was also basically empty. Other than my family and friend, the only other people at the mountain were the race team (However it had been drizzling that morning, so that might be why). However, I was very disappointed by other aspects. Getting to it was difficult enough, apparently mapquest or GPS takes you on a paper road to it, and my mother and I were lost for at least an hour. If you're going to it, stick to rt 23. The major lift was fine, but the other lifts were slow and uncomfortable. The lodge was shockingly small, and on a busy day it must be horrible! But worst of all was the snow conditions. There were patches of grass on basically every trail, and a lot of ice (again it had drizzled that morning, but it had snowed 20+ inches earlier that week so I dont know what to think)
