Full review

I was there in 2009 and the snow making was atrocious. It improved somewhat in 2010 but still needs improvement. Staff had a union mentality. However, the hill is good - great on the upper part of the mountain. Takes a while to get there but it is worth it for skiing. Having said that, there is a dearth of accommodations and the nightlife is not for singles unless you bring a date (maybe because it is in the middle of nowhere.) Good Hill for the purists. I know it is in a State Park, but if it was better developed, it could be a first class destination. As it stands, it is too far to go unless you are in a race or have a family and want good skiing but a quiet vacation. I said nightlife is poor only because for the distance traveled, if that is what you are looking for, it is certainly not worth it.
