Full review

I don't really have anything against snowboarders, (HONESTLY!), but boy was it nice to be on a mountain with with only skiers. Nice terrain, top notch amenities like granite countertops in the restrooms, and, of course, the snow, made it a pleasure to ski here. The people were all nice, and the short drive from SLC airport is a definate bonus. This proximity to SLC also means that you better be there first thing in the morning on a powder day though, because the entire mountain will be tracked out by noon. If you enjoy a cocktail or two on the mountain, be sure to BYOB, because the only place you can get one is at a restauraunt where if you don't have a reservation, you will need to wait. Can't hang out at the bar either. Only with a meal. You can get beer at any of the lodges. I prefer hard liquor, as it's less filling :-) Nice service, and all of the facilities were just a notch or two above what you would expect. I'll definately go back, but will be using my bota bag instead of a flask.
