Thunder Ridge is nothing but pure awlsome. Lifts on weekends may get backed up. I suggest going during the week for little crowd. Trails in the back part of the are the beast and long. The down side of the back is the A lift is the slowest lift. Also the ridge has very small snow coverage. But the 2014 year is going to have a few more adjustments for the better. I hope... The ridge is family frendly.
