Full review

The first thing that impressed me was how friendly *everybody* was! Nobody acted like they were underpaid drudges. No snobs, either staff or skiers. Uncrowded slopes and nonexistent lift lines (maybe because it was Super Bowl Sunday). This was great for my son's first time on skis. I just wish it were closer to where I live in central NJ.

The terrain ranges from dead easy to kind of hard. Keith Plake would be bored, but I wasn't. The lower black diamonds were fun.

I couldn't fault them for the crappy snow conditions, because it had been too warm for snowmaking and had rained the day before.

My only complaints were that I had to do a bit more uphill traversals going from the bottom of one run across to the lift for another, and that you can't park right next to the snow if you have your own gear.
