I went for the day on 01/14/2007. To my delight there were 8 runs open and 4 lifts operating. Conditions were Spring like considering the weather of late. I did not expect anything. The snow crew does a wonderful job with their snow making and grooming. There is plenty of terraine to hone skills on and vertical runs around 1000'. I passed the resort up for years and then discovered it last season as it is 37 miles from my house. I have skied since 1973, spent 7 years full time on the slopes in Alaska and Michigan, chased around major resorts on three continents and find that most of them are a series of interconnecting runs and trails. You push around until you find terrain that suits you and then work it. Whitetail certainly fills that bill. Buy an Advantage Cards and do nights and weekdays.
