Full review

If you are an intermediate skier like me trying to get some decent skiing done this place is not for you. #1 The mountain is small and the a run is about 30 seconds on the main slope - not so much of fun #2 SNOWBOARDERS - It seemed like there were 75 - 90% of the people were snowboarders (a.k.a. teenage to mid-20 klds) who want to do all sorts of tricks on their runs #3 SNOWBOARDERS - There are ramps on the mountain and the snowboarders CAMP OUT ON THE MOUNTAIN by the ramps to do their twists and jumps. When you're coming down the black diamond section it is not easy especially for a person in skis to make a dead stop or a sharp turn unlike snowboarders. Plus there are those snowboarders that have fallen after their jumps that are everywhere on the mountain. It is no fun trying to just avoid them all the time. I had to make so many stops and fell down many times also twisted my knee, just trying to avoid people. It seems Appalachian or the ski patrols don't do anything about this situation. The main slopes should not be used by people to camp out and has to be as clear as possible.
