tickets were sold out when me and my friend went. was very dissappointed because we drove 3 hrs. Lesson learned: buy tickets in advance. From the looks of the recent posts, doesn't seem like we miss out ob much. We actually went to snow valley and there weren't many people there and it ended up being better than we though even though our snowboard time was lmited to a few hours. They didn't have electricity due to a tree downing but were able to operate the lifts on limited capacity pn generator power.
