Ice, No Powder, Quck Runs

Full review

Not exactly a thrill of a day if that's what you're looking for. It's not a terrible mountain for the area, considering the lack of options. Very icy and little to no powder. Mostly packed powder. If you can find a tree run, please let me know as I have been looking for one for years. The trails are pretty short, but you know this coming in as the mountain isn't very big (1600 vert). The layout forces you to stay on the groomed runs and prevents you from exploring the trees. Also, more often than not, a good amount of the difficult trails are usually closed. It is pretty steep though. I guess that's another reason the runs feel so quick. A decent place to get your ski/boarding legs back under you, but I wouldn't rely on the place for a full season get away. Not sure about the nightlife as we always drive home at the end of the day.
