Full review

My family has had Advantage Cards for 3 years. We would love to use Whitetail as much as we use Liberty. We are 15 minutes closer to Liberty, but have tried Whitetail at least 4 times. Except for a wonderful Tuesday snow day (where most adult still had to go to work but the kids were off) I have found the trails off the Whitetail Express full of "bombers." What is up with that? I can not tell if it is trail design or just the normal "style" of the average Whitetail customer. Most of the time I worry the zip is out of control. I am an expert skiier but I would not pick that line on a crowded blue trail. With the mix of levels (they are people not pylons), it is hard to enjoy the mountain. I did not see a single ski patrol. Not much fun for a family of mixed levels.

Beginners, stay on the EZ Rider lift, but you still have to be on the lookout for other "guest" racing to the lift lines. Experts, stay away from the blue trails. Most of the bombs fizzle on the black trails.
