Full review

Cat is a nice little mountain to get some runs in, learn to ski or take the family. Tube world a base of mountain great for non skiers and kids so everyone can have fun. Cat has a nice lodge with a fireplace, very good basic food (burgers, fries, chicken fingers, chili, soups, etc. Also a small bar serving beer, liquor and wine if you are so inclined. Staff is friendly and helpful, ski school is reasonable, rentals reasonable. Gets real crowded on weekends since it is the closest decent ski area to points south,

Only downside is that the place can get filled with out of control snowboarders which ruins it for everyone. Ski Patrol does nothing about it. I know others have noted this as well but Cat seems not to take heed. I guess if they are still making $$ why do anything. For the most part the Ski Patrol there just skis, no patrolling. Too bad.
