Not a mountain- a hill is exactly what Thunder Ridge is. The mountain lay out is- steep up, 50ft drop into valley, steep, all areas with beginner trails. The mountain is so flat in the fall you can drive your car midway up the mountain. I don't care that it rained half an inch of rain the night before, the gooming was so bad, trails without it were actualy better. I don't use halfpipes, but I know it's bad when you can see grass on the sides. The season pass only T-bar doesn't even work- there was plywood and caution tape all around the bottem terminal. Both rope tows in the valley area were dismanteled but one is still on the current trail map. The summit double is sloooooow, the bottem terminal has a rusted old steel box contianing the engine. There is snowmaking on maybe a fourth of the trails. Overall, it's a good beginner mountain but experts, even intermediates, should stay away.
