Love the close location and easy access off Rt. 81. Since new ownership, the big increase in snowmaking capacity has improved overall conditions immensely. No longer a near death experience from constant ice conditions as with Montage's feeble snow guns. For those complaining about tents, service, construction, etc... it's under new ownership who basically took a sinking ship and are working hard to improve it. That will take time, so hang in there. I found the lodge food and bar to be quite good if you bother to take the time out from skiing. The addition of the "glade" is awesome... no more clipped tickets to satisfy that tree skiing urge, and the new trails look like a hoot! Summary- it's not Vermont, but it's not 5 hours away either.
