Full review

From the main (only) lodge and rental area, you must ride up the rope tow. There are no handles on this rope tow, which can take its toll on your gloves. Once you get to the lifts, it is worse. Some of the lift chairs do not have safety bars and none of the lift chairs have padding. The seats are falling apart and made of wood. There are some chairs that only have 2/3 of the wood left, because the staff fails to maintain the lifts. The workers are angry, and will almost never slow the lift down for children. The terrain park is the worst that I have ever seen. They claim to have a half pipe, but there is only a 6 foot vertical wall which is not groomed. They occasionally have jumps, but they never groom them. You will find some good jumps in the woods that are made by customers. The rails are alright. Great to learn on. If you are an intermediate or advanced skier/boarder considering visiting this resort, think about going to other ski areas in the Cleveland area. The advanced trails here could hardly be considered intermediate by New York standards. This ski area is only good for introductions to skiing and or rails.
