Open before other nearby areas, Well Maintained, Nice Crowd and Workers
Food, Terrain Park not Open, Lifts
All-in-all it was a great way to start the season - Christmas Eve, nice weather, good conditions.
For it being open earlier than other resorts they did an excellent job. They had 4 trails open and 1 lift - all with good snowblowing (Cedar Lane was a bit icy however). It was not crowded at all and the lodge was practically empty. I loved the day.
Cons include the food - with most resorts there is always improvement...the lifts were slow but thats not a HUGE factor...and the terrain park was unfortunately not open.
Ultimately it was a great way to kick off the season and couldn't regret going - however I do not see myself going here if Mountain Creek is open.
