Full review

It was an easy drive to the ski area, buying lift ticket was quick (no lines) and a short walk from the car to the "skis on" area. I did a couple of runs on the easy slope to warm up and then went over to the other lift. It snowed the whole time and every run was awesome. No lines, friendly lift attendants, great powdery snow ( a little windy, but who cares? with everything else so wonderful?). It was steep enough to be fun and, there were enough runs that I didn't get bored. I will be back......... it's only an hour from Pendleton!
Thank you to all the employees who helped me find my way around, got me on the lifts comfortably and smiled while doing their jobs!
