Full review

so we skid this resort after spending 2 days at Belleayre and this place doesn't even begin to compare to the other. The mountain here is much steeper than Belleayre but the terrain is terrible, in a winter winter with so much snow the double diamond trails don't even have moguls on them , it is just a straight shot down a steep trail that is nothing but ice. There is so many people coming down the trails that anything that resembles powder is wiped into the woods,,The place has zero glades but if you like skiing fast down a steep icy trail and drinking beer this is the place for you!. It was so icy that if you fall down you're not gonna stop till you hit either a tree or another skier (if you're lucky you'll slide the whole way down without hitting anything). They do have excellent lifts that get a lot of people up the mountain in a hurry but I WILL NEVER WASTE MY TIME AT THIS PLACE AGAIN !
