Full review

I've held a season pass for 3 years. Last year it went up $30, and it's going up $30 again next year. I just got my season pass brochure in the mail and it looks like next year they are doing away with night session skiing (4PM to close) and closing at 9PM instead of 10PM. Yes, they have some awesome terrain parks but they don't do much good when the lifts that service them are closed (Blitzen lift). If you go on weekends you deal with weekend crowds and if you go on weekdays you deal with closed lifts. And prices continue to climb. I don't know how attendance has been this year but I think management has done a good job milking all they can out of the place and hopefully there is starting to be some backlash.

Snowmaking and grooming also seems subpar this year despite it being cooler than last winter. The place just isn't the same anymore and it looks like a lot of people agree. Speak with your wallets!
